Top 10 worst domain names

Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a business in today’s world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name
selected as others see it (as it reads) and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations such as the following (legitimate) companies who deal in everyday humdrum products and services but clearly didn’t give their domain names enough consideration:

  1. A site called ‘Who Represents’ where you can find the name of the agent
    that represents a celebrity. Their domain name for it is:
    www.whorepresents.com
  2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange
    advice and views at:
    www.expertsexchange.com
  3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at:
    www.penisland.net
  4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at:
    www.therapistfinder.com
  5. Then of course, there’s the Italian Power Generator company:
    www.powergenitalia.com
  6. And now, we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New South Wales:
    www.molestationnursery.com
  7. If you’re looking for internet computer connectivity, there’s always IP Anywhere:
    www.ipanywhere.com
  8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website is:
    www.cummingfirst.com
  9. Then, of course, there’s these brainless art designers, and their
    whacky website:
    www.speedofart.com
  10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website at:
    www.gotahoe.com

LOL It’s been a long and slow road but I finally have written my 100th post. This is it. I stated blogging back in February of 2005. My posting frequency goes up every month so who knows, maybe one day I’ll be posting 100 a day like the Scobelizer. Keep reading

MapLib.net

MapLib.net turns any image you uploaded as large as 6000*6000 into a custom Google Map in a really simple way. You can maintain markers for it, as well as embed it in your own web pages or blog. This seems more like a fad than a real business value. I guess we’ll know if it turns into the next YouTube.

IE7: Automatic Updates

Internet Explorer is now being distributed as a critical update via Microsoft Update. This means two things for you.

  1. You’ll be over at your mom’s house showing her all the cool stuff that she’ll probably never use and may even have to fix a few things.
  2. And if you have a website or more you’ll probably have to fix a few things so they will render correctly in IE7.

If you don’t want to get IE7 via the automatic updates then Microsoft has created an IE7 blocker toolkit for you to use.
