    I've been searching all day for sites that support and sell .edu domains and couldn't find any at all! lol, They just say it in the ads on G and mislead you, directing you to considering a .com, or all that other stuff :confused:

    well, if the govt can try to ban DHMO, then I'm sure we can start a government agency of jokes. and they can make a .gov joke site so we all know what is an acceptable form of humor :p

    I just got a piece of mail today that will let me make a shirt that has my last name university on it..like "Smith University" Does that qualify me as a real school for an edu domain or do I need a football team too? :confused:

    I used to be incharged of my school website it had a .edu.my (malaysia) domain but I think the old board got the domain. I don't think you can get it through the net.

    dude, that rocks! I'm gonna see what I can do! :D

    HEYYY... Now that I think about it, alot of these edu's go to college uni's. Maybe theres a way to like go back to college, join up, and request edu's with reference to the college which you go to. It's a long shot, but it might work out...
