Ever since I can remember, my last name (which, btw, means money) has been an issue. It’s too long, too Polish, and too convoluted to pronounce/remember. There’s a saying around the interwebs, tl;dr, which means “too long; didn’t read”. Well, my last name = tl;dt; too long; didn’t type.
Moving to adamp.com
As you might’ve noticed (unless you’re reading this in a feed, subscribe if you aren’t!), today my blog no longer resides at adampieniazek.com and instead is at the much more sensible and easy to remember adamp.com.
I’ve actually had adamp.com for a while. Interesting story there, I saved $450 on the adamp.com domain name. A squatting company tried selling it to me for $500! I told them, meh, they let it expire a month later, triggering my auto-buy-if-it-expires option at GoDaddy and bam, here we are.
For a while adamp.com would just redirect to myfirstnamemylastname.com but I figured why bother, adamp.com is the better domain in all aspects and I can convert adampieniazek.com into a landing page of sorts. If you head over to this blog’s old home, you’ll see there’s a landing page up for the root domain but everything else is 301 redirected to here. I’ll put up a tutorial on how I did that over at The 42nd Estate shortly.
Until then, if you spot any issues or problems, let me know. Hope you enjoy the new, minified domain!
