We've Moved!

But not. 

I finally bought a domain name for Dohiyi Mir.  The old URL will work fine, but if you want, go ahead and update your blogrolls and bookmarks to reflect the new address of www.dohiyimir.org.  Yeah, I just got .org because the blog is a non-profit venture, hopefully in contrast to the commercial enterprise of Winding Roads.

Will the new site still have those non-working links?

Whoa! I just did a "sweep-n-copy" and got more than expected. Huh? Durn kumpoot'rs!

Oh! No highlighting!

But a "click" gets you a menu.

...durn kumpoot'rs, ag'in!

It's not highlighting? You using IE?

whoa, i just clicked the link, and now i'm in the same place as before. just like my real life.

cyberspace is weird.

Aye! Windows XP, Windows IE 6.029...yadda etcetera

As a user, I get "trained" and then when the computer doesn't perform as expected, I don't hack as much as I could...

Now I know.

It's not highlighting? You using IE?

NTodd, it doesn't make any difference... I just tried the site in IE 6.x and Firefox 1.0.2, and it works fine in both, including highlighting stuff. And your links appear to work from either domain name in either browser. I don't know what's afflicting Darryl's computer. :)

Like you, and for the same reason, I registered the .org name for the Yellow Doggerel Democrat, but have left it as simply a referral to the current site. Someday... maybe soon, if I get irritated enough with my host, and they're certainly good at annoying me these days... I'll move the whole site and standardize on the new URL. Until then, I still give out the old one.

Kat -- No worries; I won't be watching. 90% of everything is crap, except for the SciFi Channel, where 98.72% of everything is crap. :)

NTodd, there's something wrong with the new site -- I get a big, kind of square lump, brownish, down the left hand side, it looks kinda drippy, sort of chewed...

Oh, wait, nevermind. just a piece of my waffle stuck to the screen. Ooops.

I'm sure glad I don't have Thersite's computer... on the other hand... Mmmmmmm Waffles..

NTodd? What exactly is the purpose of buying the domain name?

Posted by: des | Apr 1, 2005 8:17:32 PM

des - not much of a point, really, 'cept to further cement the Dohiyi Mir brand. Also, should I actually move the blog, like to another hosting service, the URL can remain the same. It's a portability issue more than anything else.
