Hello! I'm trying to find an old post about vanity URLs. It linked to a cool site where you could type in a domain idea and it would carve it up in fun ways using strange domains. So for 'johnsmith' it would offer not only johnsmith.com but also john.smi.th and other options...

We set up a new domain for hosting static content like scripts and images at mefi.us
. You might want to add it to your NoScript whitelist. [more inside]

Bug: If you set your prefs to show 99 days of posts, the front page shows 99 days of posts, thereby taking forever and making the server pretty unhappy, I bet. There should be some max built in there.
Suggestion: Set login cookie domains to ".metafilter.com" (note the two periods), so logins will work at metafilter.com, www.metafilter.com, and metatalk.metafilter.com.

It turns out that MacSlash.com was no more "hijacked
" than succaland.com was "stolen
" (despite what it says in the MetaFilter sideblog). Like k10k.com
, they let their domain expire and it was snapped up. Leslie Harpold
says that hoopla.com and smug.com hadn't expired, and Verisign
has not contradicted her, but true domain hijackings don't seem all that common, do they?

Regarding the whole VeriSign domain hijacking debacle, I've interested a reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times in doing a story on the problem. However, he needs a Chicago connection -- anyone know of a victim in Chicago/northern Illinois?
