So I wad just talking about domain names and I happened to use smellmyf.art as an example. To my astonishment, this domain was available (it isn't any more!)

But that got me to thinking, "I wonder if eatmysh.it is available?"

Unfortunately it isn't, but the website that hosts it is AMAZING!

eatmysh.it

I should add...the website IS suitable for work.

I would argue that it is not suitable for work. Please upgrade to something more secure. :blobtongue:

@brandon mentioned that it has no JS – that's putting it mildly. Here's the full source, beautiful in its simplicity:

<html>
<head>
<title>eatmysh.it</title>
<style>
body {
background-image: url('home.jpg');
height: 100%;

background-position: center;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: cover;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

@kev my biggest surprise about domains was that nobody had ever taken angry.im before me (and sadly I didn't think of a good use and it ended up as my mastodon / matrix domain). But it was still pretty astonishing because normally domains consisting of common words should have been long gone, let alone ones that makes any sense.

@PeterCxy @kev the likelihood is it was a premium domain at one point (.im has some random ones) and there are other clean namespaces but mainly due to their price, which keeps the squatters out. I vaguely recall IoM priced up their names until recently
