Wow, 10 years of beguelin.com

Back in 2000 I registered the domain name beguelin.com for 10 years. It expired this month and I had to renew it again. Network Solutions sent me a letter in the mail since the old Yahoo email address they had on file for me didn't work anymore.


A lot has changed in the last 10 years. It almost hurts my brain to think about it. In fact most of it is so personal, I don't feel right blogging about it.

I do remember getting a call back in 2000 from the folks at Henry Beguelin, they wanted to buy the domain. Frankly, I might have been willing to sell it to them. I told them to make me an offer, but they decided to go with henrybeguelin.com instead. I still haven't gotten around to buying a pair of Henry Beguelin shoes. It would be nice to have a pair.

The domain renewal went through, even though I accidentally let it expire. Email that was stuck in limbo has started coming through and the blog is back online. Apparently all is well in domain registration land.

I decided to renew the domain for 20 years this time. I can't even imagine what I'll be blogging about in 2030. Maybe I'll be concerned about social security. Either that or where to park my nuclear powered flying electric car.
