Finally, a real domain cometh!

Assuming that I actually set stuff up correctly, soon should finally be associated with my website. Which has yet to actually be used for much of anything yet, except a few map files and a semi-private voice service. As soon things are done, I will attempt to make point to this blog as an alias. I know plenty enough abotu web development, it's just I am so darn lazy about getting stuff put up, given that when I'm not working, I'm usually interested in hanging out with a certain Firefly...hehe.

For how bloody long it took me to get all of my content here, I am not interested in leaving Blogger right now. Maybe someday I will transition to some software package, or write my own, but I am perfectly happy with Blogger—and the only "Mainstream" package I know for running it myself, is Wordpress: which can suck rotten eggs and die as far as I am concerned. So unless I get an intense interest in writing web blogging software, nothing will change, except there will be multiple ways to access my blog :-).

Both and should refer to THIS website. There is no significant difference, except some more 'advanced users' of my journal/blog may experience issues if they are using bots that do not understand redirections.

Which one should be considered canonical, well that is up to peoples bookmarks and Google.


  1. That does definitely sound good!

    I use my domain for some kind of a personal notebook, email with Google Apps and some other stuff.

    Do you host it on a private server or at a company?

  2. Legally hosting a dedicated server from a home is somewhat difficult with many U.S. ISPs, as their T.O.S. generally say it is a major GTFOH issue.

    I have it hosted with a company that I know/trust, and have had that running for like 4 or 5 months now. I just haven't gotten around to setting up the website portions until now lololol, so I didn't need a domain to start with.

    As I get more interested in Android development, having a name spacing my crap should fall under tld.spidey01, terryp, or my email address. So having a real to match com.spidey01.packagename feels logical. I do admit, I did check to see if my family name was available first (it wasn't).
