UPDATE: I decided this post was good enough to double as the "about" page for this website.
The words of the Teacher, son of David, king in Jerusalem.
Either I'm suffering from depression, or I just like punishing myself. Maybe a little of both?
I once wrote an article about my never-ending battle to come up with the perfect domain, called Domain Wars. Well, it's not just about finding the perfect domain, it's also about saving some money, I guess. I just recently changed the domain of this website from nws4.me to nws.rocks only because it was going to save me a couple of dollars. Now I've decided to do it all over again.
The real problem is my domain registrar keeps coming up with all these really neat top level domains (TLD's), and they graciously alert me when they're available. Maybe it's OCD, but it's hard for me not to search for another domain until I come up with a better one, or I'm content with the one I've got.
Anyway, I logged into my account this morning and noticed a new TLD, ".work". That's interesting, I thought. I haven't seen that one before. It's new enough it would probably be easy to get a good domain. (Also, as a side note, I really wanted to get a second domain similar to the main one to be used for shortened links.) Conveniently the .work TLD connotes something you're doing. Something you're working on. I've always considered this website a work in progress, since I can't ever settle on a theme or domain, you know, minor things. And then it hit me. Sometimes this website seems so pointless, so ... Suddenly I had the perfect domain.
Now that my decision's made I have a lot of work to do, changing the links up and other stuff, but at least I'm saving some money, right? For the time being you might see some references to old domains of this website 4n3ws.com, nws4.me, nws.rocks and nws.club, maybe more, I can't remember.
I'm starting to ask myself why I'm doing this. Is there a purpose, or am I just playing around? I'm not sure I'm ready to answer that yet, but until I can I'll just consider this little website an experiment, even if it's nothing but futile work.
