I'm a dummy: Mistakes, Goof-ups, Silly Things Done Whilst Domaining
Let He/She Who Hasn't Had a "Doh!" Moment Cast the First Stone

 12:19 am on Nov 25, 2007 (gmt 0)

I thought of a domain for a friend of mine who's site I'm managing for. He already has the main domain for his site but I thought of a new one to go along with the business name he wants.

I thought, this is a great idea! Register the domain and 301 it to his site.

I go to register it, it's registered already. Dangit. It's an uncommon and geospecific domain. OK, let's go see the whois.

Sure enough, my PC crashes. *mad* I knew I should I registered it the other day. :(

PC boots back up and I go to a whois site and I type in the name then a wave of stupidity goes over me.

I did register it the other day when I thought of it, I just didn't redirect it. :S

Ahhhh the old domain registrations at 4:00am brain lapse -- done it....<grin>

But then again; I've gotten up some mornings thinking about a programming problem from the night before --- get myself back into the code only to find a bunch of features or bug fixes all working nicely and I have no recollection of coding them....

Alcohol used to do that to me during college. A program wouldn't work. Go out drinking, wake up and the problem is fixed. I guess I'm a better programmer drunk? ;)

This should be moved to foo, it is rather funny.

I do like it - mostly when im drunk I just think up really good ideas for websites and when I wake up in the morning I have some good ideas in a notepad on the desktop.

I love vodka, its a good thing. :)

I'm not a drinker but I sometimes make notes when I wake in the middle of the night.

Then in the morning I can't read my own handwriting. :(

Not me -- alcohol and programming don't mix. I prefer naturally occurring sleep deprived, forgot to eat for 18 hours, ketosis buzz, (yes, computer programming can burn fat).

I think my problem stems from playing too much football(us), with a loose helmet!

Think of good ideas one day and cant remember what they were the next.

Stumble across an interesting site or blog and cant remember the URL when I want to get back to it.

Of course the easy answer is keep pen and paper handy and write things down.

But noooo!... I always think I will remember!

Ummmmm... what was the original question?...KF

I did that once. I went to register a great local domain only to find that it was already registered...sure enough , I had registered months ago and forgot about it. Maybe that's a warning sign that you have too many domains.
