What is ec.je, it’s a good question and much like the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, it’s 42.
But really, it’s an old days site that I had when I wanted a .com, I found EvilCheese.com (which is now being squatted on, good luck selling that bro dude, I got zero visitors then).
When I was looking for my first two letter domain, I did a number of searches, and one of them being ec. Having forgot that .ec is the soverign state of Ecuador, there weren’t many options. But her majesty’s island of Jersey had a homie’s back, and with that ec.je came to life. Bringing back the joy of evilcheese.com without so many typing letters.
The idea was to have a short domain to use when I want to put things online, because I do have an awful habit of registering far too many domains. I, in fairness, did start to do this as for a while the web address for the BBS was mmn.ec.je. I will probably move it over from mmn.cx at some point, when who knows, but probably may be.
But because 2018 so crazy and I’m thinking of 2019 already, I’m going to start getting my shit together with ec.je and getting it all under this domain now.
It’s no secret that this site is run on WordPress, not as a blog since you can find that over at lj.gl, but got to give a big holla out to DreamHost, which is technically the longest relationship I’ve been in to date. You know truely how many domains I got yo.
Blogging wise I have been at this for a while now, I started my LiveJournal back in 2000, it’s been with me in the thick and thin since then. But everything kind of changed when LiveJournal was brought over in to Russia. Since then I have been looking to get all my stuff from there and bring it over where I can keep it on my own terms. I’ve seen sites over the years drop off, with everything on there vanish in to the Internet Archive. And 18 years of posts, ramblings and quizzes is not something I’m willing to give up easily.
For prosperity, I present to you, my LiveJournal profile.
There are things I’m forced to write about online and it transpires I am just one of those many things.Kévin COSTELLOE – Bloggeur Hipster depuis 2000 (mmn.livejournal.com).
As always I barely know where to start, so I guess I’ll start at the beginning. I was born in Toronto and continued to go to school there (as one generally does). I started to build my own interest in computers through my poorly funded state provided education, where the school board could only afford Commodores and Apple ][‘s. I spent a lot of time playing, working and pissing about with them.
To the point where, when the school was going to bin them I got first grabs at having my own C64 (hey they offered!). I eventually managed to upgrade to a machine with Windows in 1994/1995 and an Apple Classic. During these days I started to find out about BBSes and that darn fangled internet.
I downloaded my own board software and it started from there, MMN was born in 1996.
Years passed on and I continued to work on this project ever since. During my life, I decided to move countries back in 2002 to Bristol (UK). I stayed there until 2013 when I lived my dream and moved to Paris.
I’ve been here ever since and I’m probably never going to leave. Because you know, Paris.
I’m not only passionate about classic computing, but ironically enough learning/speaking French (I think I can thank my québécoise grade 6 teacher for that) and cycling. I enjoy techno/hardcore music and was pretty much the only person in school who was in to Dance before it became the mainstream pop shit we all know and want to burn.
Since 2000 I’ve also been ranting continously blogging on LiveJournal. I currently operate MMN which is a BBS / Web Hosting / Domain eTailer. So check it out : https://www.mmn.on.ca/
And we can’t forget my Interests as well, which I have not changed since at least 2003.
