With me too busy in the real world to write whatever comes to mind for at least half of every week, it looks like this blog is going back to the original function I had in mind for it, to announce updates to The Xenophile Historian. Here’s one that’s different – it has a new Internet address. Sometime back I bought the domain name charleskimball.info; I figured that those who know me in the real world will find it easier to type that into the address bar of a browser (and find it easier to remember) than http://xenohistorian.faithweb.com . I would have preferred a better known suffix, like charleskimball.com or charleskimball.org, but those were already taken. Still, since the purpose of this website is to share information, .info will do.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not planning to get rid of Xenohistorian.faithweb.com anytime soon. It is the first URL the site had that made any sense. You should have seen what I was using before I moved the site to its present host, in September 2000. On Geocites, for instance, the URL was http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Oracle/1591/ ; that doesn’t tell you anything about the site, does it?
If you’re used to the old Xenohistorian URL, or bookmarked it on your computer, it will still work for you. I started the job of associating the new URL with the old one last Saturday, and today is the first day that it worked, so give it a try. Two URLs for the price of one!
