GoDaddy.com Crashes My Firefox 3 Every Time I Try to Register a Domain

I tried GoDaddy once years ago and absolutely hated it. But today I decided I wanted to register a .tv domain today and it seemed that GoDaddy had the most reasonable rate (advertised at $15.99).

Well, aren’t we all in a little bit of debt these days? Me? I’m not looking for millions, but even a couple hundred would help me stay in the black. And what’s more, I’m not asking anyone to pay me on top of some publicly paid salary — I actually do all this blog stuff out of the kindness of my narcissistic little heart. But you can PayPal all your pennies to andy@netzoo.net or hook me up with something from my Amazon Wishlist. I’ll let you read it when I’m done if you’re nice. So there! I’ve got nerve too, Hillary!
