Finally bit the bullet and set up a domain and some free hosting. My domain is , or soon will be here:
I’ve checked out what .co.cc is and although it’s some tiny island in the middle of nowhere I don’t care – apparently all the relevant search engines find it – and that’s what counts. Once the site I’ve pointed this is ready it will have some “net art” in it – probably something subtle done in Processing.
I don’t suppose for a minute that I’m going to rely on this domain as I am well aware that there is no such thing as a free lunch (or a “free” website!). If there’s any unnecessary advertising it’ll be history.
