    Sorting through some old office paperwork last night I found a stack of old domain certificates with the old security code peel tabs, made me realise how long I've been involved with domains - I'm sure there's plenty of Acorn'ers who go back further than this, with the paper form transfers!

    I think this must have been one of my first back in the heady days of '05! I edited out the domain this letter was for... mostly because I dread to think what FTR names were available that I passed up to grab this cracker :D

    I think I registered my first domains around 1998 onwards:
    the proms.com
    thescottishhighlands.com
    whiskygalore.com
    bothy.com
    vaughanwilliams.com
    thechilterns.com

    I also had thehumanrace.com but like all the above I let them go.

    I remember the old Nominet certicates that you mentioned - still got a few of those knocking around somewhere.

    I think my oldest domains still registered to me are theology.org.uk (2004) and isthebibletrue.com (2005).
