As we told you in last week's episode, we've made up 10 domain names that are related to some of the most popular things related to diggnation - or stuff that we just think is funny. We've registered these names with our good friends at GoDaddy.com and they're going to be giving them away - at random - to 10 customers. Some of the names include HIPPYGLENN.COM and DIGGNATIONU.COM plus 8 more. To qualify, you just need to register a .COM, .NET, .BIZ or .ORG using the promo code DIGGDOMAIN.
Now, that DIGGDOMAIN promo code also knocks the price down to just $7.49 per domain, so if you've had your eye on a domain for a while, you can save some money and get a chance at winning one of the domains we picked out. See the official rules at Revision3.com/DiggDomain. Also, we'll check in on some of the domain names that were randomly given away if any of the winners do anything cool with their random domain names.

Over the Limit? Under Arrest. Don’t put yourself or others in danger. Far too many people do not understand that alcohol, drugs, and driving DO NOT MIX. The message is simple.
Law enforcement officials will be out in force all over the country from August 21st through Labor Day weekend cracking down on drunk drivers. Beyond putting your life at risk, you could cost yourself a bundle of time and money: jail time, the loss of their driver’s license, higher insurance rates, and dozens of other unanticipated expenses from attorney fees, other fines and court costs, car towing and repairs, lost time at work, etc.
The worst/best part of drinking and driving is that it is so easy to avoid. You can still go out and have fun, just plan ahead: if you are going to drink, designate a driver, call a taxi, use mass transit, or find some kind of sober ride program.
