Does Du do it for you?

What, indeed, to Du?

Go to It's a reasonably cool and very fast (the world's fastest, apparently) WHOIS lookup site (A WHOIS lets you find out who owns which Internet website, so you type in the name of the site and the WHOIS returns who the owner and operator of the site are).

Or try searching for du in Yahoo! and you'll get, among other strange things, Ducks Unlimited, the North American waterfowl conservation site. This is a neat link as if you look up du in Wikipedia, you'll find that one of the many things it stands for is the name in New Caledonia for Sylviornis neocaledoniae - an extinct galliform bird.

Wikipedia also tells us that DU, du or Du also stands for:
Which, honestly, all says more about the telephone company than I wanted to say in the first place. I'm still with etisalat, despite having had every intention of switching.

As the late, great Ian Dury tells us: what a waste.
