I’ll show you a Network Solution!

April 21, 2006

Apparently, Network Solutions decided that unless I host* my site with them, I’m going to have to pay $34.99 to renew my domain name for ONE MEASLY YEAR!*.

Uh, thanks but no. Ever frugal (after spending a pretty penny on bras) I transferred my domain over to during lunch. For $10.00. Less than a third of NetSol’s cost.
Now this SHOULD be seamless and SHOULD be invisible. But you may experience some weirdness when trying to access me for the next week or so. I’m still here, and once your ISP updates its DNS records, you’ll see me again.

On a design note, later I’ll probably adjust the column widths to a 2:1 ratio. So about 2/3 of the width will be for the text, and I’ll increase the stuff on the left side to be about 1/3 of the page.

*To be cool like me and have a website, you have to buy both the name ( and the hosting service (the big computers that your words and pictures live on). My host is Lunarpages, and for the $8.00 or so a month I pay them, they are incredible. Forgive the didactic nature of this post — I’m in Internet Trainer mode today. More on that later.
