Domain Names

I have never bothered registering a domain name in the past. This is principally because the main one I wanted, http://www.ports.com/, is owned by some fly-by-night chancers who run a few ships and harbours. Quite how that can justify them getting ports.com in the face of my obvious ownership is beyond me but I have decided I will not sue them for cyber squatting. *Deep Breath* I'm man enough to walk away.

Anyway - I figured it was about time I had my own Domain so I have squandered £10 pounds to get http://www.mrports.com/. Of course it just points to this web log since I haven't anything else remotely interesting to do with it at the moment. This is the reason I have dusted of my amateurish PhotoShop skills to create the new brash logo you see above, horribly undermining the subtle design work of the original template developer.

So if you are one of the kind people who link to Ports Thoughts, please feel free to update to link to www.mrports.com so my new branding exercise will impress all and sundry, even though it is about 5 years after everyone else did it :-(

The current owner of dadams.com wants $1,390 for it's sale (and I can click a link if I feel my rights are violated). Mind you I could make an offer. Let's start the bidding at $5.

Never mind, I think the dadams.co.uk brand is well-known enough ;o)

Ha ha. You swine Woody. You are of course right ;-) At some point I might sort it out.
