Robb's Law

From Radio Free Blogistan: Robb's Law, IMHO a very important principle for webloggers everywhere:

Robb's Law
NEVER (under any circumstances) publish a weblog to a domain that you don't control.
- John Robb

I hereby christen the above quotation Robb's Law or Robb's Law of Weblog Hosting in full. I suppose it could be broadeneed to web publishing in general. I certainly think owning your own domains and when possible running your own servers is the ideal scenario for any web publisher.

[ Christian Crumlish - Robb's Law ]

Hence my port 88! I own the box, co-rent the DSL (we moved and lost cable) line and have access to the router. Course, when I finally move into my own house (7th Aug) I'll probably move the port to 80. I'll keep a redirection up for a while though. It's very handy owning all the bits..
