I have a strange email address:
(The image at the top of this page is a dotat.)
When I first investigated buying my domain in early 1997 the
Austrian Domain Admins
organised subdomains under
so it was not available.
Some time later that year the policy was relaxed so when I next looked
in October 1997 I was able to buy
I'm still slightly surprised that no-one got there before me.
People occasionally email me for no reason other than the fact that
they have heard of my address from
somewhere or other
but I don't appreciate this very much and they are lucky to get any
reply at all.
Sometimes people use my address as a spam trap, and I appreciate this
However when people copy me
I just assume it's flattery, even though
I wan't the first to come up with the idea.
Some of my other email addresses, past and present, are:
