So I went with pipemaze.com, for it’s simplicity and lack of any real connotations that would prevent it from being used for any particular purpose. There’s nothing there yet because I’m still thrashing in the throes of final-paper madness, but I’ve got a couple ideas planned.

At ardesia.pipemaze.com there will be the reappearance of the collaboratively-constructed roleplaying setting project that I started a while back when I had my own server. I’m also planning on using lexicon.pipemaze.com to host games of Lexicon: a 26-day online roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of scholars and create a fictional encyclopedia, one article a day, one article each per letter of the alphabet. Follow that link for more information if you’re intrigued.

I also set up saxifrage.pipemaze.com as a place to put a personal webpage, in theory. I don’t know what I’d put in such a page, but I figured I might as well set it up now so I don’t have to be annoyed by the slow propagation of DNS when I do want to use it.

I’m happy with dreamhost so far. They offer lots of space and bandwidth for a paltry $10 US a month, shell access, domain hosting with unlimited subdomains, unlimited email accounts and listserv functionality, Jabber serving, and more I can’t remember now.

I’ve got over 4 gigs of space to play with now (well, if by now I mean after final projects are in), and I just don’t know what-all I’m going to do with it. Once I’ve got the wikis for Ardesia and Lexicon set up, what else should I use it for? Y’know, it always happens this way: you always want a digital camera until you buy one and can’t think of anything to shoot with it; you always want a scanner and then it just sits there once you actually buy one. Got any suggestions?

That sounds wicked cool.

I liked moosecheese myself.

pipemaze.com is a cool URL name. I'm glad you got it! :)
