Cold Turkey

I haven't bought an IDN for a couple of days now, and before that not for weeks - i've got the shakes, can't conentrate, can't sleep and I can't stop eating chocolate..

and I see IDN's everywhere, or I mean i see potential names everywhere. Even reading the side of a cereal box I see IDN potential somehow.

I just found myself in the middle of trying to translate "cold-turkey" into Japanese to see if its free to reg

.. i think i'm going cold turkey


anyone else want to admit to having issues with dealing with this addiction??

any tips anyone

Re: Cold Turkey

Alphamale,
I am not alone, everywhere you look, if its words or numbers, it could be an IDN?
I need help.
Regards
Gari

Re: Cold Turkey

I will be reggn IDN's for many years to come !

Life would be just too boring without chasing a name.

The only way i have found to slow down regn names is to develop the ones i currently have but i still have to scratch the ich every few hours.

Re: Cold Turkey

For the last couple of weeks - I admit i've been going a little bit nuts regging 5-10 words a day. I just can't seem to stop finding potentially good domains. Mostly not great mind you, but in my eyes opportunities commensurate with the investment required.

Just yesterday surprised to reg this little jewel amidst the lotus:
職安.com (over 100,000 JP ovt and the .jp is reserved) which is an abbreviation for 公共職業安定所 - think of it as the national public unemployment agency. There will be type-ins to this baby for sure.

Same here. I am 50% back to SEO and ascii. Got some nice offer for my SurfaceTables.com and refused.

Find another non-domain project to occupy your time and divert your cravings.

Best way to do it. I'm now onto another web sideline project, non-IDN related, and i haven't registered an idn for a few months - other than the ocassional catch drop.

I'm on 100% development. Haven't regged anything in a good while, and don't intend to.

Olney has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Re: Cold Turkey

Won't reg anything unless it's quality or has a clear future plan. Thinking just (when I get the time) to better profit off of the existing portfolio. Will buy a few that go very well with a few underdeveloped parts of my portfolio.
