Naming your business is a pain now... especially if it is an internet based one. Very hard to find good .com .net domain names that are short and simple these days.

I got mine while I was drunk at home.... just stumbled upon me

Well I based mine on what I am, a freckleface. My nickname is actually Pickleweed, I have that domain, but there is a park named that and didn't want a conflict with my business so went with something else. Also own Hostxxx and Hostxxxxx but haven't decided if I want to market either of those, using them for resellers so had to x them out. I just wanted something that was different and catchy at the same time. Will I not get customers because of the childish type name, maybe but then again I may get some because they have Freckled faces.
Stop on by and say hello!

I grabbed Ctrl-Alt-Deli early on (in the 90's) - after the required 3 finger action needed by any MS operating system.

Stuck an 'i' on the end for an American deli type of feel as the rest had been taken.
