[geeklog-devel] Yay! geeklog.de is ours

When I decided to start a German support site for Geeklog, "geeklog.de"
was the obvious choice for the domain name - and, of course, it was
already taken (redirecting to a dating service ...). So the site became
geeklog.info instead.

Four weeks ago I noticed that geeklog.de now redirected to a default page
by DENIC, the German domain registry, stating that they've taken over the
site because of technical problems and that the owner had been notified.

It seems the owner wasn't interested in the domain any more, because it
showed up as available for registration yesterday. Not for long, of course :-)

So geeklog.de is now a part of the Geeklog family - redirecting to
geeklog.info, which I intend to keep, too. It's just nice that the
obvious (for my fellow Germans, at least) domain name will now take
people to the proper site.

bye, Dirk
