Tomorrow marks the expiration date of my 9-year old domain, microwavesoft.com. It had served my purposes well back then, allowing me to explore and learn more about administering a server on the Internet. Last year, I wanted to dispense with it when I purchased this domain, hurst-ri.us, to replace the .com with something more personal. But I renewed it another year, so I can properly transition all my e-mail and web addresses to the new one, without any disruption.
Farewell to another dot-com era! Here is a final snapshot of its whois entry:
