I need a Domain Name

I am going to buy a new Domain Name and am looking for suggestions.
I would like something that falls in line with embeddedthought.com and I would also like to make sure it is a .COM.
I have already tried ethought.com and e-thought.com both of which are taken. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

microthought sounds like someone who thinks very small.
Thanks for the suggestions, keep them coming.

embedded-thought.com is a good one. I'll add that to my maybe list.
Thanks.

I thought 'Microsoft' had changed the meaning of the word 'micro' to match their size!

Use "thinking" instead of "thought", sounds more 'dynamic'.

I'm not a fan of URLs with hyphens -- it usually means that the URL you really wanted is the one without the hyphen and it was already taken, so when someone accidently types it in without the hyphen, they go to someone elses site.
get what I'm sayin?

That was my thinking too. However, IF I did go with embedded-thought.com and someone mistyped, it would just take them to my other site.
The ones I am leaning towards are:
gthought.com
embeddedthinking.com (haven't checked to see if available yet)
embedded-thought.com
thinkembedded.com
But I am still open for suggestions.

just a reminder, a good domain name should also be easy to remember. have you tried e-thinking?

Yep, taken. But good suggestion.
I am starting to lean more and more towards gthought.com.
Any comments on gthought.com? Sounds good or stupid. The G of course is for Gregg.

it is pretty good!
actually you can use anything from a-thinking to z-thinking, people will probably try to figure out what it means.

Agree that hyphens are bad.
gThought.com = easy to remember, sounds like g-force (for what its worth!)
gThinking.com = easy to remember, and you can use the 'g' to mean Gregg and 'good' - as in Good Thinking! - for another tagline or ad stuff.

well, i guess i was thinking too fast.
when eThinking is taken, hyphen is not too bad.
now i guess all the buzz words were already taken. so you have to settle a little bit. gThinking is wonderful. bThinking is not too bad: refering to business and your last name initial. there are others, like xThinking, which has been proved in xGeneration and xGames.
what else? iThinking? uThinking? well, whatever you do, do it quickly.
