If you have anything at all to do with creating web pages, you should read the article Slash Forward, which includes a quick overview of Your Friend, The Trailing Slash.
Google Rules January 24th, 2002 @ 12:14 am PST

Dotster January 20th, 2002 @ 3:50 am PST
When I want to register a domain name, I go to Dotster.com. It might cost a few dollars more – and I’m talkin’ like, $2 more – than some of the bargain basement registrars, but you cannot beat their customer service, administration, and control panel options. I’ve used them for years and highly recommend their […]

Port Problems August 2nd, 2001 @ 3:58 pm PDT
For some reason I cannot FTP or SMTP to davidgagne.net from my office. I know you’re asking, “David, what does that mean?” It means I can’t upload anything to my site from work (no new songs!), I can’t send eMail through my davidgagne.net account from work, and I can’t modify any of the files at […]
Miami, Part II July 27th, 2001 @ 4:20 am PDT
Grrr … and, even though I can access GreyMatter to post, for some reason the folks at AT&T have determined that davidgagne.net is a porn site or something. The Public Phone 2000i won’t let me view my own page. So. I guess I’ll go read Rolling Stone. The paper, handheld, old-fashioned version. In a chair. […]

It drives me nuts that you need to enter the www to get to the University of Florida Home Page. Just typing ufl.edu won’t get you there.
Available Domain Names March 20th, 2001 @ 4:46 pm PST
The available domain name of the week from splorp.com is a handy and fun little web resource. I remember visiting the site early last year and seeing some great names. This is a site for the people who complain that all the good www names are taken. This week’s available name is plaintextarchive.com. Check ’em […]
domain name expired February 11th, 2001 @ 2:52 pm PST
So. My domain name (davidgagne.net) registration expired on February 9. Rather than do something silly, like send me an eMail to warn me that it was about to expire, the folks at dotster simply closed my home on the ‘net and replaced it with that Renewal Notice. As far as I can tell, I got […]
