bikingintaiwan.com

I bought the domain name bikingintaiwan.net a few months ago. I wanted bikingintaiwan.com, of course, but that was taken. Then in early January, I started receiving a long series of e-mails from the company that had bought the dot com domain, asking me to make an offer for it. I ignored it, of course, because I don't like the idea of buying up domain names just to sell them on. I mean, what a business model, buying domain names and reselling them. If you get walmart.com, I can see that there might be some money in that, but not for non-commercial sites like this one. Anyway, today I checked again, and because I didn't take the bait, the company didn't renew its registration of bikingintaiwan.com, so now I bought it. And I paid 9 bucks instead of the minimum 70 they wanted to transfer it to me. Now I just need to get some time to sit down and redo the site in wordpress rather than movabletype, and then it's time to get back on the bike again. I've already returned to the gym, with 10kgs to lose. Wish me luck...
