New Domain TLDs are here! :D

In case you didn’t know, this year has seen an exciting event take place in the online world. Many new domain extensions TLDs (top level domains) are becoming available for registration. Some of the already available for registration include; .gallery, .email, .photos, .directory, .photography and .graphics (with many many more).

We should all be rather familiar with .com, .net and .org but soon we might all be using .blog for our sites too. I think this is really exciting because with many more different types of TLDs being out there, it means that we can have greater sites build to specific interests. For instance, if you’re a photographer you might use a .photography, .photos or .gallery.

Even though there are many serious or ‘target specific’ TLDs (think .tattoo, .management) there are also many that you can have fun with and be creative with too (like .today, .voyage).

Maybe it’s just for the fact that I do have a domain problem and like looking at them…. >.<

So, what are my favorites so far, and what am I looking forward to most? This could change over time, but right now:

So far I like: .gallery the most
Looking forward to: .blog, .cloud, .dot (xD), .free, .host, .love, .mail (I like this better then .email) and .web

What about you? Are you into domains or considering any of the new ones? :)

I have also been updating my domain inspiration list with new ideas when I think of them.

New Project + Design Update

I have decided that I am going to work on an online project that I have thought about for years. At the moment I am not going to give a lot of details away, other then it is community based and hopes to help some people, well website owners. It’s not hosting related, just something else. I am interested in finding people that might be able to give opinions on various things, so if you are please let me know. :D Why am I doing this? Well, I thought it might be a good idea to try and focus on something, something that can be positive.

I have been playing with the design I made in my previous post and made some changes. Mainly to the CSS and changed the header image to something very simple. I have a lot of fun playing with the colours in the CSS. Next time I want to make more changes to it, add some icons and polish it up a bit more (the sidebar menu links need to be changed, I find them annoying. :P). So far I have been enjoying working on the design.

I have also been a bit slack on my other blog Moon, but hopefully will catch up on it soon.

Congratulations self, I managed to not make one post during the whole 28 days of February. :0

Reflections on my todo list for February I.. well I didn’t really do much of anything besides Uni. I finished my first two units and I am currently starting my next two this week (or they did start on Monday.. shh). I am happy with the results I have been getting and the fact I am doing something I never thought I could and under all the moaning and groaning I really do love it. I think something else I find really great is the fact I am meeting many great new people that I probably would never have met otherwise, people with the same interest in the interwebs or web related work interests! *high fives*

I have been sick for a few weeks, blaaah. Finally starting to feel better again. I think too many really late night study marathons have not been that wonderful for my health or my brainz. You live, you learn (or something like that).

I have discovered the magic of Tumblr. I have to blame an assignment I had to do, which I decided to use Tumblr for. Since then I have become addicted and keep blogging and re-blogging. Heh! If you have an account, let me know and I will consider following you! :3

Meet me on the internet cafe

I am currently studying intimacy and dating on the internet. While my University work requires that I think about this topic critically, I wanted to post on my blog a creative response to this via poetry!

Meet me on the Internet Cafe
Look at us out there existing
two souls tangled
between virtual woe
can we converse, trust
backup the tale we have sold

Will our true personality
become a placement
for more intimate feelings to devolve

Are we absent again
in this man made universe
evolving, reshaping
updating, refacing
everything we have owned

Is there a time limit on reflections
archived, rewritten or saved
does my digital shadow follow me
or like Peter Pan’s become displaced

Distance is no enemy
compressed to 1s and 0s
everything a cell
living, breathing, alone

Can we commute again
with confidence and decorum
will my status be updated
to lease or for hire

will I be again walking
on this expanding
high-wire.

Rolling Around On Broken Toes

  • Happy Birthday Krissy!
  • I need to make sure I read what I post before I publish (in regards to my last entry that had a lot of fail).
  • I have to write 500 words on the impact of music in everyday life, right now staring at a blank page (I can dooo ittt).
  • I need to reply to emails this century. My mind is a mudpuddle right now. :0
  • I have become slightly obsessed with watching TV shows online; Dexter Season 5, Freaks and Geeks (Dude, I loved this show.), The Walking Dead (I only just discovered this and I am in zombie/horror heaven 3_3 ) and a number of other series I am going to try out, like Skins and Glee (I am not sure about this, I am not a great fan of musicals, heh). Watching TV shows does not help with study. Oh the evil delicious.
