Ok I learned a very, very important lesson last night. I bought a new domain name-luckily something that I just intend to play around with.

I opened my emails this morning to review what I'd done.

I typoed in my domain name. I'll look a total fool if I ever go to use it. Now I have to never admit to having the domain.

Never, ever, drink and buy.

Never drink and shop - my girlfriend has been saying that for a long time.

You can drink and buy, you just need to have a designated speller. I've definitely managed to screw up spelling my name or writing out my zipcode since I tend to transpose numbers and letters. I've learned to double or triple check lest it causes problems.

Yeah, drinking always causes bad things. I try not to drink at all.

Even I don't drink, I check the spell more than 3 times when I buy domains..

It is, I looked

I don't normally drink either, hence the reason that I made such a foul up. Not used to it.

nice topic, after drink not just domain spelling but CC info can be brutal (e.g. recurring billing) ...

Hans123 has a good point, there.

Go tag back and make sure that the domain is NOT set to auto-renew. Heck, if you know you aren't going to use it, just delete it after six months or so (to give yourself time to make sure...yep, you aren't going to use it.) That goes even further in ensuring that you won't auto-renew the domain.

Wow man, I would hate to be you right now... But, people do way crazier things when they're drunks, so i wouldn't worry about it

Oh mercy! Bless your heart Abbierose! I haven't ever drank while online trying to purchase something, but I have done it while I'm in a terrible state of sleep deprivation! Note to self and others: This is not a good idea!

Why not? You will be able to register as much unique as possible domain when you are drunk!
