Bought my 15th

I have bought my 16th domain name today,, for a project that I am going to do some day soon.

The way I see it, domain names are like Internet real estate. And indeed, some people market them like this (though I wouldn’t). The domain name system and the top-level domains everyone knows and loves (.com, etc) are not going away anytime soon, nor is there any kind of suitable replacement to solve its inherent problems.


Changing domains AGAIN--welcome to

Just when you thought I had settled on a domain name, I decide not to! Hah!

I’m going to be moving this site from to Some reasons why:

  1. It’s actually available
  2. It’s short
  3. It’s more me and is more personal (Samat IS my name)
  4. Less connection with my company, Rhombic Networks

Some negatives:

  1. This is the… 4th or 5th time I’ve changed domains? I’m going to write up a history page one day…
  2. It’s eerily similar to my friend Sudarshan’s domain.

While I am going to keep the same Drupal setup, expect some stuff to break. URLs hopefully will remain the same (as they have with and I think I am going to try to figure out something fancy, such as a script that will issue HTTP status 301 (permanent redirect), which Google respects, so the old URLs don’t stay in search engines forever.
