Getting attached to abstract things and what happens when they get lost ^_^

I started this homepage more than ten years ago (and made no money out of it at all since then)

My registrar is in the U.S. and since I reserved this domain for ten years, I was pretty miffed when last weekend the registration run out. OF COURSE the administrative email address I registered back then has been non-functional for quite a while so I never got any warnings. After all, 10 years on the internet is like half an eternity!

Only when the homepage was not available anymore I noticed how dear it is to me. I don’t think I’m a cyberaddict (iAddict?) but I’ve put a lot of time into that site after all.

Fast forward to me scrambling to get my page back online… fortunately it all went well but since I re-registered the page for another ten years, maybe the same will happen again in 2021.
