A New Home

Posted 2006.11.17 1.00 in Computers/Internet/Technology by Stephanie

Well, this blog started off as a few silly little posts that I needed in order to test the ‘phlogger’ software I wrote as a photo / blog management system. That was back in June. It’s since grown and I’ve got to enjoy it (although sometimes it feels like a bit of a chore, when I haven’t posted in a week and feel like I’m neglecting it).

Anyhow, the point is, today someone asked me for my web address and I couldn’t just give them a simple address. Why not? Well FelesMagus.com seemed like a good idea at the time, and might make sense on paper, but when I say it, nobody knows what I’m saying so I have to spell it, then nobody can figure out what I’m spelling because so many letters sound similar. Consequently, I’ve come to the conclusion (after almost 5 years) that using latin for my domain name was not the smartest idea.

Considering I decided to name my blog Transmissions from Planet Stephanie, I already had a good idea for a domain name that would be easy to say and spell.

So tonight I went ahead and did it! The original addresses will all continue to work, and felesmagus.com will be my main address for the forseeable future, but at least when folks ask for an address I can give them a fast answer:

Registered tonight, it should be up and running properly by some time tomorrow. So, yippee!

Once I know the new domain is fully working, I’ll migrate all the internal references from felesmagus.com to planetstephanie.net so everything should work all ticketyboo.
