Don’t use Dotster

The airhook and liboop sites are now at http://airhook.ofb.net and http://liboop.ofb.net.
They used to be under .org, but when they expired (and they were set to auto-renew), Dotster transfered them to “DSTR Holdings”. Dotster didn’t update the whois, which still shows Dan Egnor as the domains’ owner, but otherwise are not recognizing his claim to them.

The old airhook site is now a generic parked domain page, with Google Adsense for Domains links. The old liboop is a copy of the old liboop grabbed from archive.org, with some Playboy links thrown in.

Want to register your domains with a company which is using a subsidiary to jack your domains as they expire? I didn’t think so.

In the beginning…

So, how did this come about? Well, a Google recruiter found my online resume, thought “hey interesting”, then while checking on me found out that I’d already been working here for a year and a half. Thus I figured it was time to update my web page again. And hey, why not try this blogging thing?

So, after some minor trials and tribulations, I have WordPress set up. Some notes:

  • PHP and MySQL don’t get along well. Some key info is at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/old-client.html
  • PHP abandons the concept of “users” with different privileges, so there’s no security between one part of “the PHP system” and another part. I don’t like this when one of those parts has a MySQL password in it. So I’m going to work on wrapping this PHP in a CGI.
  • I’m going to have to make my own theme, or else this blog will be quickly abandoned on aesthetic grounds.

Hello world!
