    I suppose if Pablo Picasso were alive today, he's have wanted to grab the email address: Pablo.Diego.Jose.Francisco.de.Paula.Juan.Nepomucen o.Mar!a.de.los.Remedios.Cipriano.de.la.Sant!sima.T rinidad.Ruiz.y.Picasso@gmail.com
    Fortunately for him, since this is only 132 characters, he could even extend it if someone else has already taken that address.

    Okay, I think we have all made the point now. Can we stop turning this into a 'longest internet names' thread

    Incidentally, that company name appears to have hit a limit at companies house, otherwise would have had a final 'd'.

    Actually that is a shortened version of my original email address which used to be:
    <name>@<34characters without a dot>.co.uk
    So I've already shrunk it by 3 characters!

    Sorry, my mistake, wrong power of two -1; it's a maximum of 63 characters between dots. This is from RFC 883 DOMAIN NAMES - IMPLEMENTATION and SPECIFICATION, which has been superseded. It was probably made up by Jon Postel or P. Mockapetris while they were extending DARPANET into the Internet of 1983.

    The Nottingham BS eSaver i6 is no longer available
