I got a message from an email address at a0l.com. At first I thought it was a typo or a fake, but my reply didn’t bounce, so I knew the domain was valid.

That sparked my curiosity about other domains with 0’s instead of O’s. I checked g00gle.com but it was blank, so I used whois and discovered that Google had registered it. However, unlike other alternate domains like gooogle.com, they don’t forward this one to the real site. It’s a conspiracy I tell you, a conspiracy. They’re probably using invisible HTML and now that I’ve stumbled upon the secret Google is going to be upset. If I don’t make any more posts after this one, you’ll know why.

  1. Can I have your car when you are dead?

  2. Can I have your condo when you are dead? Perhaps it’s only fair if you say goodbye to Atticus first. He has really taken a liking to you.

  3. Maybe you’ve stumbled upon a mistake. You should email them about it. Maybe they will be so grateful that they will give you a reward.

    If not, can I have whatever Jason and Mel don’t get!

  4. I’m reminded of Elton John’s song, “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” by your touching and heartfelt requests for my belongings.

    Emailing them about it is a good idea, I’ll have to try that.

    Goodbye dear Atticus. So long and farewell.

  5. 1) Who/what is Atticus?

    2) If you have a printer better than an HP712C, can I have it? :)

  6. I think Mel should explain Atticus. It’s quite a story.

    Sadly, I don’t have a printer, but I have a very nice pen. Would that do?

  7. What, no printer?

    I think this kind of the way of the future. With phones w/ cameras and PDAs and webpages, people don’t need to print out as much at home as they used to.

    I still use mine – actually more since I got a digital camera. Plus, only one of my grandmas uses email so I still have to print out letters to the other one.

  8. There are times when it would be helpful to have one, but I can print at work which suffices for the occasional times I need it.

  9. I have a half-decent printer, but it’s been out of ink for over a year now. I almost bought some the last time I was in an office supply store, but I couldn’t remember the model name.

    I also had a very nice pen/pencil set, but I don’t know where it is anymore. It’s sad. Not that I used them for anything, but you know, it’s sad to lose nice things even if they just sit there.

  10. I stole your pen/pencil set Levi. Hey Dan, can you kill Levi so I can have his Zaurus pda? Thanks.

  11. Levi, if Dan comes into your room tonight. Don’t fight it, walk into the light, walk into the light.

      » Comment by jason on May 21, 2003 @ 9:36 am
  12. I’ll take Levi’s convertable. Someone else can have the inkless printer.

  13. Which one, Renee? The top on the Jeep comes off, too. :) If you take the Miata, you’ll have to be prepared to deal with fuel lines that pop off unexpectedly, occasional loosening of bolts, etc. At least until I get those issues fully worked out. So, you may want to hold off on that hit for a while.

  14. Renee wants your miata, I want you jeep. Dan, make sure I get the jeep. okay?

    Oh, and Atticus is a remarkable cat. I’m going to send a pic of him to Dan so hopefully he’ll post it for you. The story starts with something like this. Atticus was once a girl named Clio. Atticus has since changed his mind and decided to join the opposite sex. Dan and Atticus have a special relationship where Dan will wiggle his fingers and Atticus will attack, much to the dismay of Dan’s fingers.

  15. And now, for the revealing the animal who was once female but now male in all his or her glory.

    I give you: Atticus.

  18. Huh. Well, good luck with that, gabriele.

    Now that this thread has resurfaced, I thought I’d point out that I have ink for my printer and I’ve found my missing Cross pen & pencil set. Also, the Miata’s fuel lines don’t pop off anymore. Oh, and the Jeep is for sale. Life is grand!

  19. Good Evening youngsters.
    I have been watching this forum for quite some time and I believe it is time to take action against the increasing number of nonsense posts. Please refrain from using this forum for talking about sports, sex and other pleasures.

    Yours Sincerely

  23. You’re right. It looks like they’ve let the domain expire. There goes my conspiracy theory.

      » Comment by dan on May 16, 2004 @ 8:19 pm
  24. Perhaps they let it expire because you discovered it!
