i quite like i picked up this domain "" a few
years back, when the christmas islands registry were giving out free
domains to open source developers (and my humble offerings qualified).
they subsequently went into receivership and a new company took over,
but one of the old techs there was kind enough to credit my account
for 5 years before he left, and the new company has said they'll
honour all existing records. :-)

anyway, i use to use my domain like a dynamic DNS
service. they redirect all my mail to my ISP's account, but it means i
can ssh home by just typing "". and it's free.
