rubbah and horns

~Oh, give me a home, where the googlebots roam, and SRC never hits 404~

Wheee :)

Thanks for all the feedback on the poll. My friend already has the structure of his photo-hosting service together, and has a launch date of January 10th :) I'll link you to the site when it's a bit more fleshed-out. Cheap, no ads, easy-to-use. Sounds good to me!

In other news, I'm considering a domain name now. These are more or less in the order of consideration... which do you like best?

Poll #89403 dominion

I'd like to see Ldy at...

Something else?



Right now, I'm leaning towards Silvansong. It was my name when I played GSIII many years ago, and I still like it. But I'm open to other suggestions :) Thanks for your help!

Whoa. FearsomeButterfly was something I just pulled out my arse that just popped into my head as I was creating the poll. I hadn't even considered it before then. I had NO idea it would be so well-liked.

I'm also surprised that Ligerish was so popular. Who'dathunkit?

I've toyed around with some other ideas (ManEatingCouch.com, Lepidopterrafirma.com, FirebreathingDragonfly.com, Bagofholding.org/Websiteofholding.com and BadassButterfly.com just to name a few), but I probably shouldn't confuse things further ;)

I'm still leaning towards the sweet song of elves, and am surprised that I've taken one of my old favourites (which I nearly bought last month), FeatherCap, out of the running completely.

Poll #89510 Once more, with feeling

Which of these domains do you prefer?

And which of these?

.org?
9(25.0%)
.net?
14(38.9%)


"Ducttaparian" wasn't in there because it was just too damned hard to spell. But if enough people really like it, I'll consider it further. And yes, "ldy" was taken (pretty much across the board).

Btw, you guys really rock. Thanks for all the feedback :D

Stop her before she polls again!

Well, heck. You guys rock my socks :D

Here I was thinking "wow-- Silvansong! I'd forgotten how much I liked that name! Better than FeatherCap, even!" and you guys lead me to a different domain altogether.

Hee :)

So, yeah. Let's consider the many types of butterfly.nets available...

FearsomeButterfly.net

FearMyButterfly.net

BadassButterfly.net

CaughtInMyButterfly.net

TwistedButterfly.net

ButterflyWithouta.net

NotYourAverageButterfly.net

PurpleButterfly.net

ExplodingButterfly.net

Hmmm. Before I poll again, what are some other cool words that might describe butterflies (and their nets) in interesting or unusual ways?

Btw, "butterfly" looks really really WRONG when you write it two thousand times :P
