Domain Article /CNN

A domain by any other name is not the same
Scoring a catchy URL can make a small business. And luckily, getting one doesn't have to break the bank.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- These days, you really can't start a small business without getting on the Web, but it's also never been harder to score a snappy URL.

There's reason to worry about a shortage of marketable domain names. To date, more than 70 million domain names have been purchased, and most - if not all - dictionary-word domain names (i.e. house.com, furniture.com) have already been taken.

Yes, but it will take another 50-60 years for the ice to melt enough for the ocean to rise enough to cover the waterfront home. The world we know might have ended before that with a few N blasts.

Re: Domain Article /CNN

Ah, but as the ice melts faster, channels of water start forming below the glaciers and instead of ice melt being the biggest cause of the rising water level, you get huge mountains of ice suddenly sliding into the sea.

Huge mountains of previously landbound ice going into the sea equals instant rapid sea level increase. Once the ice is in the sea, the melt rate matters not, as future melting does not affect the sea level.

Try it with a glass and some ice cubes.

They've already detected a significant increase in water flows underneath the ice in Greenland.

I hope members can take things at stride or not get too worked up - it's bad for your health.
