I didn't bother to wait until next payday since I already had the money, and went ahead and registered my domain last night.
I'll probably still use iki.vandaliersheart.com for a while longer, until I'm more familiar with the host. My host (bihira.com) is suspiciously cheap, and I haven't had any trouble with my vandaliersheart.com subdomain.
Anyway, there's pretty much nothing there at the moment, but the fun part about having a domain is the email addresses. Unlimited addresses, wheee~
Now it's time to stop the spending spree and save up, because I'm going to offer a 2000 kroner (~315 USD) reward to whoever finds Odessa. I don't think I've ever seen more than 1000 kroner posted as a reward for a common domestic cat, but I'd gladly pay up if I can get her back, and more people looking for her can't hurt.
