Whoa, that's the longest domain I have ever seen in my life. I mean seriously, that is stunning! :P

LOL! When I first found out that website, I was quite amazed to say the least. =D

BTW, hi there! I also wanted to mention you to that you are welcome to delete my folder under your domain account, now that I have my own. Thanks so much for letting me use it!
