Yeah, seems to have bought the .as domain. I'm using it because
it fits the Fyksian orthography. "": all the letters fit
into the Fyksian alphabet. Also the Fyksian website is on Tripod because of the
same reason.

But the actual country code for Fyksland would be .vk (Vaijskä)
Was thinking about claiming the .vk as my own but again i don't wanna pay nor
do I have the technology to hold a server...  :o)

A lot of web addresses end in .to (including a lot of porn sites), which is
*supposed* to be Tonga (which is a country where almost everybody is evangelical
Christian), so sometimes a country code doesn't matter. I've also seen a .so URL
somewhere, and I don't even think Somalia has the Internet yet.

And on a tangent go I: Techia would have to have .te, .tq or .tx or .ty for an
ISO country code, since .tc (Turks and Caicos Islands) and .tk (Tokelau) are
.taken already. Actually, I'd leave .tx clear just in case Texas decides to
secede (who knows, it might)....

I kinda want to change the language and conculture's name so I can use .tl,
which not only looks cool but is a testament to the existence of lateral
affricates in the conlang.

So what about your'n?
