I've started to notice that I find myself thinking of websites I frequent as having nicknames. I realized the other day that it comes from IE's autofill ability to decide what page I'm trying to go to in my browser's history.
Sometimes it makes sense. mail is all I need in order to get me to my yahoo account, while gmail gets me my Gmail (doi).
But then there are others that don't really mean anything. They just seem to be names for websites.
theforce.net is Thef.
kingdomofloathing.com is King.
timesucker.blogspot.com is Tim.
Inevitablly, though, someone will send me a link to something stupid like timisaretard.org and I suddenly have my nicknames all screwed up.
There's something extremely annoying about having to type the extra ".y" to get to mail.yahoo.com if "mail" brings up something else in the location bar.
I hates it, i tells ya. I hates it. And I hate Tim. He's a retard.
