Waiting till 2 hours after midnight to make sure I get <firstname>.dev in the auction.

Luckily I have wine and Youtube

    Just out of curosity, am just wondering what you would be doing after getting x.dev domain?? I am currently seeing the trend of people getting a domain with .dev for themselves but how is it going to be beneficial in the long run??

    @swappy Good question! I have no professional answer for it I'm afraid.

    I honestly bought it because it's fun to have a domain like that, I currently have 3 domains linked to my VPS where I host my portfolio. I'm not a freelancer so I don't really have a need for a website for clients to find me, but I still use it to showcase my projects for the world to see.

    I now have <firstname>.dev, <fullname>.dev and m<lastname>.nl, all because I have the money and I thought it'd be fun to possess those names.

    I believe there was a discussion on another rant about .dev domains which featured a discussion about the usability of .dev domains in general.

    Mine's still available. Benefit of having an unusual first name.
    And my full name is long enough that it probably costs half of that
