Changes Coming to the Blog

Sorry if you had trouble finding the link from the registry’s home page to the blog, but we had to make some changes. Back in December 2003 when no one other than the Howard Dean for President campaign had ever heard of the term blog, much less read or used one, we launched this site, a blog devoted to the latest news in registry operations, real estate and technology. Rather than engage a high priced consultant before we knew what we were getting into and thereby waste a lot of the taxpayers’ money, we discovered Blogger, a site that gave us an efficient and free means of communicating with the rest of the world. Of course, nothing in life is free, so Blogger does come with a price: advertisements for Blogger and a lack of complete control over the site by the user (after all, it is operating on Blogger’s computers). Yesterday, it seems, someone discovered (after two years) that we were operating our blog on an unofficial site and became concerned about that. I won’t get into the details other to say the concerns were legitimate. Consequently, we will be moving the blog onto our own website and will use new software that will give us complete control over its content. This will take a couple of weeks, so in the meantime, you might see some disclaimers en route to this site. The good news is that the new software will give us all types of new and useful features that will really enhance the site. As always, we will keep you posted.
