It will probably be dark for a while

Saturday 18 February 2006This is more than 17 years old. Be careful.

I’m a lot more optimistic about my domain name than I was yesterday. I spoke to a support guy at, and he thought it would be a simple process to unlock the domains and get them transferred. There are grace periods, so it isn’t the imminent crisis it had seemed yesterday. Thanks to all who helped, publicly or privately, those leads definitely got me from panic mode back onto a productive track to solving the problem.

But the domain will expire, and will likely park to a bogus portal page, and my email will stop being delivered. I’m not going to bother posting to a new URL, I’ll just take a breather for a little while. If you need to get email to me, send it to Gmail, where my account name is ned and then bat.

See you on the other side.


Enjoy your digital vacation. We'll all be happy to see your "I'm back" post, when you get this all sorted out.

That reminds me, I think I missed a "Your domain is about to expire." email a while back... good thing I don't use it! :-/
