It's been a bad few days for my computer

The other day I lost all my email for the last year and a half when pine accidentally deleeted everything.

And today, for some unknown reason (well I can only think it is due to running Microsoft Frontpage for the first time ever just to see what it looks like) windows registry fucked up and on a reboot, reinstalled an old registry from when windows was first installed.

The effect was as if I was reinstalling windows - had to reinstall everything.

And bizzarely microsoft internet explorer has fucked up. It is a hybrid between IE5 and IE6 - i.e. it says its IE5 but has all the extra functionality IE6 had over IE5. Also the cipher strenght is 0bit, so I have to reinstall IE6 to rectify that.

MSN Messanger isn't working at all. I think that that is due to the cipher problem as trillian connects to MSN perfectly.

In other news though, PINE have released a new version which has the odd few nicities and I have upgraded mIRC for the first time in four of five years from 5.4 to 6.03. It's a lot better.

Several people wondered what I'm going to do with the site:

Well it's just going to be my personal demain - long term like. Something that will last for years

The site itself will be homepage, CV, stuff about me, perhaps an LJ feed, any web site that I wanna write about anything that doesnt warrent its own domain name, just general me stuff. Stuff I can show employees, friends, family and the like. So the name has to reflect me in every aspect, professional, educational, family, personal, social, everything.

Also the domain will form my permanant email address. I want an email address that will last a very long time. This is just as importannt as the website.

And when I get broadband It'll be used for the address of my computer somehow too and any other servers I might run on it and stuff.

Basically a general purpose long term domain name. - suitable for all eventualities
