I was up at midnight anyway last night, and was interested in seeing how bad Facebook's servers were going to smoke at the online goldrush for vanity Facebook domain names.
Imagine my surprise when at midnight exactly, there site stopped counting down and asked me if I wanted http://facebook.com/mark.stout as my page?
I grabbed it.
And the servers held up under the onslaught by all reports.
I have the two major email addresses in that name too. Sure makes it easy to give out my email address verbally. Sorry all you Mark Stout's. At least I don't own markstout.com.
And the ironic thing is, I've only been on Facebook for a few weeks now.
