If you’re looking at this page right now, I guess you either got here by some search result, or you’ve figured out my big screwup: I forgot to renew my domain www.blogbynight.com
actually, that’s not quite right- I forgot to renew it until about six days before it was set to expire. Then I submitted a request to have it transfered to a new registrar. When I sent the request, I was told to wait for an email with instructions to follow to complete the transfer. The email never came and I got busy for six days and the domain didn’t get renewed or transfered.
The email never came because my email server is now running a SPAM filtering service – which has been great for the most part – I went from receiving over 100 junk emails a day to a handful. But it seems the confirmation emails for my domain transfer request were unfortunately generating “false positives” and getting filtered out at the mail server – which I didn’t realize until after the domain had expired.
Now I’m in the process of figuring out how to get my old registrar to release the domain so I can move it to my new registrar… something I don’t think they’ll be too keen on doing, since they can just hang onto it and try to fleece me.
What to do… maybe it’s time for a change of scenery around here anyway… a new name, a new look, a new direction. I dunno. I’ll submit the release request and see. If I can keep the domain, then I’ll do that… otherwise, I suppose I’ll get to work on something else.
In the meantime, I will continue posting here and this site will be available at the horribly complicated url: www.storm.ca/~evad/blog
UPDATE I have another domain pointed at this site now… it should begin working within the next 24 hours. Try www.posativ.com. (posativ is the name of my web and multimedia business – I haven’t gotten around to setting up a website for it yet, so I might as well get some use out of the domain)
