I'm seeing a trend emerge, but I can't quite put my finger on how to identify it. Does it already have a name? If not, help me come up with one (for an article I'm writing). The article's jumping off point is RapGenius's foray into annotating everything
not just lyrics, the NYTimes' Quips

When buying a web domain, one is given the option(for an additional fee), to make the domain "private" where the owner of the domain is hidden from public view.

The desire is to hide the domain and completely non-work related blog from my employer.
Trying to set up a new wireless network and running into all kinds of strange problems. Connections dropped every few hours! Some machines work, some don't! Can connect to internet, can't
