I bought two more domains today in preparation for a new site I'm making. I realized today that I own six domain names, and none of them really serve any purpose. How many domains do you need to own before they take away your nerd card and give you the platinum nerd card upgrade?

I surely don't make any money from any of my sites. In fact all they cost me a fair amount each year. What is the motivation for making a blog, or a fansite, I wonder? Does it just feel good to have a voice and to be heard?

In any case, I now know how to set up Bind9 for multiple domains on a single machine. I think. This is the fun of running your own server and not having a clue what you're doing.

My new site is going to be a gallery for origami. My crusty old gallery of origami photos is by far the most popular section of this site even though I never ever update it. And even though I can't take a good photo to save my life. So I'm going to split it off into a new site.

I'm unsure what photoblog software to use. Pixelpost is very minimalistic and looks good, but it's a bit too inflexible for my needs. And I'm so sick of reading/writing PHP that I don't want to make it work for me. Today I was reading about mod_lisp and Weblocks, and toyed with the idea of writing up my own photoblog software in Common Lisp using that or one of the other Lisp web frameworks. It's a thought. It'd be a fun way to learn the language. I have to see how much time I have.
