Caught by the nose? Break free with a domain name.

100% mobile friendlySeptember 18, 2017: This is far from being my most ambitious website. I have just had a look at the remnants of a site I created a few years ago, and been impressed by its appearance. So why did I abandon it, and drop its associated domain name? The short answer is that it took up too much of my time, and kept me from more important work. Recently, I have also become aware of the need to ensure that all one's sites are mobile friendly — to cater to the needs of the 90% who access the net from hand-held devices. — Alan Ireland, Palmerston North, New Zealand
