A few random thoughts on decentralized DNS (which may never happen, but the iron isn't going to get much hotter than it's about to get)...
1. The system should not be controlled by money but by need/utility. If you're providing a useful site, your cost for domain control should head towards zero.
2. Domain-squatting (https://htyp.org/domain_squatter) should not be profitable. The longer you have a domain without using it for any useful purpose (and I'm not innocent of this myself), the easier it should be for someone else to demonstrate greater need for it.
3. All of this implies some kind of process for public evaluation of a site's usefulness. I have ideas for this.
How 'bout that .org sale, huh?
...decentralized DNS, anyone?

#4 & #5 are the best, but the other 3 might be good for you, too.
The #CoA gets some long-overdue TLC:

Money; donation link for a friend
My friend Phoenix is in a hard spot rn. She has no income coming in for the moment and currently is trying to get her bank account in the black after accumulating ~$250 in overdraft fees.
Anything helps. If you can donate to her PayPal, please do! Please share either way!
This one is a switchbox for loudspeakers (up to 2 pairs). There's a switch to reverse the polarity of one side (in case you wired it wrong, or aren't sure and want to compare) and volume controls (this was by the bed where I could reach it; the amplifier was across the room) and headphone jacks.
...I actually don't remember how *all* the switching worked; I just remember that it was definitely for *speaker*-level signals, not line-level.
Also, I used bundled phone-wire cables (soldered to DIN-5 plugs) to carry the signals.
Does anyone know of a textbook or similar resource on designing catalysts for organic reactions (most likely metal-based, not enzymatic)? ... might need a prerequisite in metal coordination chemistry, so that too if you know of one.
(Asking for a friend.)
(No, seriously. I have some very interesting friends.)
Does anyone know how to add more sessions in Tabs Aside?
I did it somehow early on, because I've got five sessions now -- but I want to create a new one and can't see how to do it (and my RAM is overflowing, help, Mr. Jaws, that's not the way this record is supposed to end... <burbling noises>)
P.S. Actually, "Drowning in the [web]Surf[ing]" would be a more appropriate joke here, but I couldn't figure out how to reference it and FIrefox is so overloaded that I couldn't even search YouTube (refused to let me type in the search box), so I had @Harena look this up for me: https://youtu.be/P30egjTvgfU
