    Hmm.. the domain is free... I wonder if I should purchase it then sell it to you...

    edit: Backordering is cheaper.

    Though, "microsoft" is pretty laughable hehe
    According to ID, in a hint manual back during the Wolfenstein (ORIGINAL) days....they used it because it refers to the word ego. It's a psyche thing. (read: They're that damn good)

    That's the same thing as Poly was talking about.

    Yes, hence me saying, Freud's id, though it's not literally "ego"

    The point of the matter is, we got it all explained from every angle. Now people like Govtcheez will understand those big words.

    actually the id is specifically the animalistic drive part of the ego, there's the id, the ego, and the superego, so you can't just say id means ego, and if you've ever actually hears someone say 'id' they sound like a caveman grunting and yes its a great name and yes micro soft is funny because my name is john jacob jingle heimer smith

    Yes, because "id" is such a gigantic word

    Anyways we're getting off topic. I don't like the name Smacky Design

    I've been asking around some other places - nobody does, and I'm not liking it anymore either. I'm going with Mackrory Web Design, and because of xei, I'm thinking of going with it very soon... Thanks for all your advice!

    Oh, and I also found out that Smacky is a cartoon character, and Smacky Web Design is a wanna-be company (hosted on Geocities - that should tell you something) apparently notorious for sucking.
