It’s the last day of Winter Quarter. This would be a Good Thing if only I didn’t have to grade final projects for four classes all weekend. Grades are due Monday. I have a fun weekend ahead.
Addendum to an earlier post: Bowiebanc is working now. Still, you have to think that it’s not good for a financial institution’s website to give even the briefest impression of instability.
Ha. When looking to see who owns the various BowieBanc domains, I found this result for bowiebanc.net (and bowiebanc.org, too):
Registrant: DAVID BOWIE BuyThisNameTodayPLEASE
3 Delara Way
Woking, Surrey GU21 1NY
I think this guy may have a tough time claiming that he’s not a domain “squatter.”
MMMBop.com? Hanson is working with David Bowie’s company to start their own ISP — Hanson Net. Fans will have access to Hanson-customized Web browsers, tour news, audio and video, but unlike Bowie, no Hanson Bank (yet).
Speaking of the Bowie-branded online bank, BowieBanc.com, it kind of looks like they let their domain name lapse, or something. It’s just got a register.com placeholder page right now, and the WHOIS listing shows that the domain’s info was ch-ch-ch-changed yesterday. The last time I looked at the page it was definitely the real thing. Did Bowie give up on this venture already?
