WolfBlog

Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Not alone anymore

Published: Friday 2006-03-24.

I just noticed that I now have a namesake, softwolves.pp.se is no longer one of a kind there is now also a softwolves.dk.

The domain was registered a few days ago by Christian Bohr-Halling, who makes the Danish translation of Opera. So not only did Christian get inspired by my domain name, he also has, like me, a web page about Opera.

I wrote to Christian and asked after having noticed his choice of a domain name, and he admits to having been inspired by my name and wondered if I had anything against it. But, no, it’s rather the opposite, they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and as long as everyone is clear that I was first (I have been using the name Softwolves since the early 1990’s), it doesn’t bother me at all.

The open question now is who will be the first to register softwolves.no and softwolves.com

Well, the Opera part isn't really up and running yet, but some day it will be (probably some time during the summer months). Only just begun considering layout and design (current status: http://opera.softwolves.dk/test/ - only layout, no contents - don't look at it in IE :-)

Hmmm.... Det finns ju möjligheten att registrera www.softwolves.tm om jag minns rätt. Men efters som du är en sådan puritanistisk internettaliban så skulle väl du aldrig registrera det domännamnet?

Eller varför inte den "riktiga" svenska varianten: softwolves.se?

Jag är privatperson, så pp.se passar mig helt perfekt :-)
