    .net = network/internet!
    .org = organisation
    .com = commercial

    .co.uk = united kingdom
    .nl = netherlands
    etc...

    .net = only choice that makes sense. best choice.

    Organized piracy? Do we start wearing suits, painting our peg legs in black with elegant stripes, start chewing fine Cuban tobacco, praising our mother's squid cannelone, talking in a strangled voice while using too much Portugalisms?
