>I don't have any bright ideas for names for you, but once you come up with

>Good luck picking a name!

Thank you Sandy,

You confirmed my thoughts about using my own name as a domain name.  And 
the DBA info will be helpful very shortly.  Great and informative site you 
Peter Kaulback

I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work.

Thomas Edison (1847-1931)
