Once upon a time, Norwegian residents could apply for a personal .priv.no domain by sending email to the hostmaster. I did so.
Times have changed, registrars and proper procedures now complexicate such things. Still, those who have .priv.no domains can keep them, and at some point registering new .priv.no domains should become be possible, too. (Update: It now is possible, at least for Norwegian residents.)
I like mine and use it, even though explaining that my email address contains two dots can be tiresome. Besides, after a decade abroad, one does grow attached to .no.
