No www

    6 February 2007, late morning

I’m redirecting any hits to this site at to, dropping the superfluous www. I’ve been meaning to do this for ages, but just read an article on the topic, and it seemed as good a time as any.



  1. What is the big deal about dropping the www?

  2. They suggest a bunch of good reasons for doing so in that article.

  3. Wouldn’t it be the same if you just only started using instead of ?

    There are also plenty of reasons why you wouldn’t want to tie down your web page to the toplevel of your domain rather than a subdomain.

    I think that article is just trying to promote consistency. If you worry about it so much, just make it so that points to something complete different than and then people will be forced to use (assuming you don’t have a wildcard set up for that subdomain).

  4. I can’t imagine i’d ever want www to be something other than this site. I just like the idea of having it all be consistent.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
