First WordPress blog
Hello everyone, and look forward to visiting people’s sites 🙂
Little short story about my site. Back in 1996 to 2001 I owned a domain name dude-suit.net which I hosted myself out of my old studio apartment. Back when domains were $75/year from Network Solutions. From 1996 to 1999 I was hosting it on a Slackware Linux box on 2 128k ISDN lines bonded. Anyhow things change, times change, job changes, and end of 2001 I had moved and let my domain slip and the rest is history.
I had a blog on blogger for past 4 years, but I recently thought ‘I wonder if my old domain was available’ and to my surprise it was.
So I thought I’d start anew instead of moving my old blog over. Installed WordPress on a co-located server I own. My short story is turning long so I’ll just say I am disabled and at home most the time, so my blog is more of an eclectic mix of posts, from cool links I find around the net, to some of my favorite music, the odd or strange news stories I may discuss, it’s sorta a catch all while I try to stick to 3 main areas, news type discussion, music, cool links.
my website is: http://www.dude-suit.net
the domain dude-suit.net back in 1996 was first thought up when I was in college and there was a formal function I had to go to and the suit I borrowed from a roommate was tad short on me, me being 6’3″. A friend said I looked like a “gorilla in a dude suit” so it sorta stuck with me so when I decided to purchase a domain I liked the idea of dude-suit.net 🙂
Anyhow would love to hear any advice, criticism, or whatever you may think.
