Update Quickies

Busy busy. I have not been updating this website for a few weeks - shame on me. Here's some update. First of all, I have recently registered a new domain yang.id.au. The .au domain registration has opened up over the last few days, and Melbourne IT has lost its monopoly over the .au domains over the last couple of years. You still need an ABN to register a .com.au or .net.au domain, but it is much easier and cheaper now. Moreover, for the individuals, it is the first time the .id.au has been opened up for registration. I registered using mine last week using Namescout, which only costs me AUD$30 for 2 years. It is still parked on the Namescout's DNS servers, but I shall reclaim it and work on it after I come back from the Mid-Year Conference. Then I guess it will become my main domain, and yang.wattle.id.au will gradually retire from its service...

Another thing I have been working on is my ADSL connection. I have been on the Bigpond Direct 56k dial up for over 3 years now, and it starts to get expensive and fell slow. I have submit my application form for a business grade ADSL from Internode, and am hoping to get it and install it after the MYC as well.
