The only one that was available is esler.com, but they want 2500 bucks for that one. I'm not going to pay 2500 bucks for my own damn last name. But esler.com used to be a website for an airport in Alexandria, Louisiana, (seriously! Esler airpark!), so someone has it parked, and has the stranglehold on that one currently. I actually landed at the airpark once when I was in the military. We were going to Fort Polk, and that's the airport we landed in. Of course I didn't know it until later.
I have email here, all the DNS zones I can handle, and loads of other goodies that you can do with your own domain. So I have changed my email on the right of page to reflect my new domain.
Esler.is-a-geek.net will still work for now, it's free! But eventually, when I get tired of renewing it every 90 days, I'll ditch it.
