Yerr but I bet Ches, Larry, Rod et al will be kicking themselves for not thinking of it 

The site works fine in Mozilla btw but the content is cheezy. Eg.:

"Why should I register an webname?
An webname reflects two important qualities - being Australian and being 
By registering your webname you are reserving your own personal place in the 
virtual world."

For where I sit may make some people think Idaho is in Australia or 
Indonesia and Australia have formed some sort of internet partnership. 

But my prime objection to this useless domain name extension is that "id" in my 
dictionary is defined as "...the division of the psyche that is totally unconscious and 
serves as the source of instinctual impulses and demands for immediate satisfaction 
of primitive needs". Not really what I want to convey in a domain name that will cost  
me between $15 and $49.50 per annum plus hosting.
