Seriously. Just found out that some cyber-squatting c&nt has just bought the freshly available www.thisisnowhere.com over the weekend.

A four pack of top hat bitter to the winner.

immediate thought - thisissomewhere.com

immediate discovery - a band called Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

Maybe this discovery will now be life-changing. Somehow I don't think so.

It's generally not a good idea to query the availability of a domain name unless you intend to register it immediately.

They have a tendency to get snapped up mysteriously not too long after the inquiry has been made.

Have you tried the .net and .org variants?

We didn't enquire. We were just waiting for it to come up but obviously it came up during American office hours not during ours. They got it literally minutes after it expired. I would have stayed up all night to get it but I still don't have internet access in my new house. Cheers Virgin.

The powers that be have now decided - two weeks after they said yes to the name - that they don't like it any more so I have to come up with something else.

It's not as simple as waiting for a good domain to 'expire' GFDC. Domains are big business and the good ones are auctioned off by the registering companies immediately on expiration.

Yes it's not fair and goes against the first-come, first-served nature of the web, but unless you're willing to lay out of few thousand bucks, you won't get a good domain for the standard registration fee.

Why do you think we've got sites called Flickr, Zooomr, Pownce and Digg?

Try here anyway - you might get something decent on the cheap.

www.cogitarium.com

...although it is listed on this page of Who.is so perhaps it's already taken. I didn't click on it anyway, just in case some Texan nerd-cunt pounces on it instantly.

CTT: Yeah, we tried to buy thereceiver.com for a few hundred quid but they wanted thousands - just don't have that sort of money.

Just tried to get zenarcade.com - it's owned by exactly the same bunch of fucking twats.
