Like a forum regular on TH once said :"It's MS, they never make much sense".
I guess the below domain name registrations can be labeled as such.

goodscientist.com
goodscientist.net
goodscientists.com
goodscientists.net
napacloudapp.com
napacloudapp.net
programamais.com

It couldbe related to some old game studio.
Good Science Studio used tobe an American video game developer owned by Microsoft Studios. It was established in 2009 to develop Xbox 360 games for the Kinect sensor. The company was originally called SpawnPoint.
So from that point of view the domain registrations couldbe purely defensive.

We'll found out in the future i guess.

Dreamworks/Sony/Fox registered a bunch of domain names also.
You can find the list at ccTLD.

They just keep buying and buying, then abandoning it...
I wonder when the time where domain names run out would come...

That's not gonna happen.
There are currently 750 different domain extensions (countries included).
Over a few weeks ICANN starts accepting the first round of new gTLD (generic top level domains) like .new , .next , .paris, .nyc etc etc.
Around 2015-2016 we should have 3600 domain extensions to choose from.

Google is no stranger to register ccTLD's like http://ro.me

Is there a way to register custom extensions? I honestly have no clue how dns works beyond turning a string into an ip address and vice versa. I probably have that part wrong as well.

    Briefly, he'll only be there for the interim. Like a stopgap of sorts, he'll be back home in short time
  • O Old Mountain Shadow:
    Hurray! Tom has reappeared!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Thursday!
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    Yep. Just another fun night at work.
  • Varine Varine:
    Broke the nozzle on my 3d printer and I don't have another heater block. So... I guess I'm fucked on that this weekend
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that sucks i bet they are expensive
  • Varine Varine:
    Not really
  • Varine Varine:
    The entire hot end is like 20 dollars, I just can't get anymore until next week
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
