When every possible combination of words that could possibly be put together to make a reasonably descriptive site name wasn't taken by some guy who is 'planning on developing it some day but might sell it.' (after ten years)
I resemble that remark :)
I also have a lot ( well a few hundred ) of short EMDs ..
Domain names are cheap, they are like seeds , you can plant them and they'll grow if tended or you can keep them "dormant" and they will still sprout and succeed , if looked after, and if given good content, even if you wait years to do so..
And there are still vast amounts of low hanging fruit, that others have missed, or dropped ( because they did not know what to do with it ) ..enough with the gardening metaphors..domains to develop..
btw..you must be thinking of around 1996-98 ..when it seemed ( to some ) that all the best ones were taken..and 32 megs of RAM was Ultimate Power :) and the echoes of Billy G saying that the interwebtubes would never catch on were still in our ears..
