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.

簡単だ!CMS Made Simple lowers the bar…

After talking about it for years and years (it seems) I finally got around to putting a commercial website:

I used CMS Made Simple and it does what the name promises: It’s easy to set up and if you have a basic understanding of databases providing dynamic content, then you should be up and running quite quickly.

That being said, the 80/20 rule still applies – the basic page is up quite quickly but fixing the details takes much longer. Even more so if the site owner just doesn’t provide any feedback T_T

Other steps that took some time were pushing the website in search engines. Whether this is the recommended method I don’t know but I simply contacted all the pages were the company was listed already and asked them to list the URL. Every little step helps methinks
