For those who might not be paying attention, the .ca (Canada!) domain
recently deregulated (mostly) and it is now much easier to get such a
than formerly (though still not as easy as a .com .org or .net). It'll
you about $50 a year. I'm now (with Jon T's blessing) the domain holder
for which is currently parked pending some security-related
details being worked out with our hosting company. Adrian J and I hope
have something useful up at this site in the not too distant (ie next
time frame. We'll try to give Mr. Sadler a run for his money! :) 

Also note with a number of new TLDs coming down the pipe, the domain
may be reduced. A friend ran a dictionary attack vs. the domain database
found out of 104,000 queries for words that only about 4000 came back
valid domains. That's why so many companies have nonsense names. (or one
reason). But the new TLDs may change that for a time till the
move in. 

I myself have been hunting for a good company name that isn't taken as a
domain.... and I ain't sharing my good ideas!
