That is funny...

Take a random dutch company I was part of the DNS team of...

	philips.it		created:     before 19960129
	philips.de		first usenet posting 1991
	philips.fr		first usenet posting 1993

Sorry, these ones didn't have 2nd level domains. They had "strange"

still owe me at least one which did.
