Welcome to ACJ's dot NET!

March 12 2004

Finally, I've got myself a proper domain for my personal home page. I've been breaking my head on this for a long time — comming up with a domain that I like and that was free for the take, might have been the hardest thing I ever did that concerns my home page. I think the close-to-endless pondering has payed off though. I'm very content with the domain I have acquired (with a little help of Juns and Garret). Wait, did I even mention what the new address is? Either way, it's acjs.net, so update you bookmarks if you care.

Here's some in-dept information on the domain, presented as a Q&A dialogue.

Why acjs.net?

Well, it wasn't my first choice (nor my second, third, fourth, and so on...), but I think it's perfect because it's pronounced (or so it should) as ACJ's. My portfolio would be hosted on acjs.net/portfolio and would carry the title ACJ's Portfolio. The same works for ACJ's Photos, and so on.

What will happen with the other addresses, will they still be active?

I will keep fragile-minds.com/~acj and home.planet.nl/~acjbizar, but I will only use them for testing and hosting of random stuff that is not permanent site content. I will probably keep the main page and weblog archives up at my home.planet.nl address — mainly because cool URI's don't change, and they generate most traffic (for now). I don't think you'll see a lot of updates on the old domains, if any. This is my new address, and I plan on keeping it.

What happend to all the content?

I'm re-writing pretty everything from scratch. The main sections (that I refer to as chapters): Photos, Weblog, etc. are functional, but empty. This is going to change soon, as I'm re-building everything as fast as I can (well, maybe not that, but still pretty fast). You can expect all the content that was featured on the previous domains in full effect, and more.

I don't understand this or that.

Well, I'm currently writing About, Accessibility, and FAQ pages, but for now you can contact me personally by posting a comment to this very post, or by dropping me an email at ego@acjs.net.

Enough introduction for now — I'm going to get back to working on my precious new site. More to come, soon.

OMG indeed. Heh.


The people pages are back, and I uploaded a lot of photos that I filed under the all new section: Logs. I also brought back the blogroll on my weblog, and I added the weblog to the blogroll (in an attempt to put the internet in a infinite loop that puts me in the center of the universe).

This thing doesn't remembers my personal info. Sux. Anyways, I still hate you, die.

Btw, blogroll? wtf?

Yeah, I noticed that, Murdoink. I think the problem is that I copied the script that bakes the cookie from a MovableType template. The template uses HTML comment tags (<!--), which renders the script useless for this site in standard-compliant browsers, since individual pages are served as application/xhtml+xml to those. It should be working now.

Actually, that didn't work, but instead of breaking my head on what could be the cause, I thought Why re-invent the weel? I decided to snoop around in the code of Jacques Distler's weblog, since I happend to know that he also serves pages as application/xml+xhtml, also uses MovableType, and does have a working cookie system.

I was very please to reed the following:
