The domain is mine!

Yayyy, I managed to obtain the domain!!!

I have been after this domain since the mid 90’s, a time when the web was about to become ‘mainstream’ an domain names were still expensive (too expensive for a student 😉 ). Some years later the domain was taken and remained unavailable until this year September.

I tried to get in touch with the domain administrative contact for months, but was unsuccessful as all contact details were apparently wrong. That meant that I had to wait until the registration expired (which was last month) and then hope that it would not be renewed…well, it luckily did not, and I was able to obtain the domain after some serious bidding in an auction! 😉

Ha, expect this blog to move to the new domain and my future email address to  be raymond(at)poort(dot)com!! (after I transferred the domain from Network Solutions to Go Daddy! 😉 )

If any family members are interested in a email address, let me know…I’ll set up Google Apps and can configure your ‘own’ email address for you!
