Bad names, rock my world

Note the comma. Bad names do NOT rock my world.Take a look at this, inparticular the "What is tonic" section. This makes me very angry.These bozos have contracted with the government of Tonga to usetheir assigned country code/TLD, .to, as something to sell to anyjoe off the street (in any country) for their domain names. Tuvaluhas done the same with .tv. Needless to say, this is not what thosedomains were meant to be used for, and it's responsible for suchabominations as http://www.come.to and other such crap. IANAshould change their name policies to forbid this, and tonic and whateverother companies that have gotten their thumb into this should just lose,no compensation. Grrrrr!

And now, on the other side of the coin, things that rock my world

  • My bike
  • My job
  • My laptop
  • Wally
  • Srees
  • Coffee Tree
  • Linux
  • Perl
  • Ricemakers
  • Pittsburgh's parks

Sometimes budget cuts suck.. Perhaps the solution is to relax with a massage..
