Goodbye Spaces [2004-2010]

What is a unique resource locator?  By any other name, it would still describe where a particular resource is and how to access it.  It would still smell as sweet.  Like nerd rage.

But http://lordpi.com is more than just an url: it is an idea.  It has had two different hosts 301 into that great 404 in the sky, but it will continue to 200.  Some chronology:

http://lordpi.com got its start via some modules on the hosting site buildtolearn.com, on January 13, 2004, as http://www.lordpi.com

Then, it was one of the first spaces when MSN Spaces launched, on December 2, 2004, as http://spaces.msn.com/members/lordpi

Then, after some changes in MSN Spaces, on January 26, 2006, it became http://spaces.msn.com/lordpi

Then, after some changes in MSN Spaces, on June 12, 2006, it became http://lordpi.spaces.msn.com

Then, with the change from MSN Spaces to Windows Live Spaces, on August 1, 2006, it became http://lordpi.spaces.live.com

Now, with the demise of Windows Live Spaces, announced September 27, 2010, it will become https://lordpi.wordpress.com

Then, if we pay extra money to WordPress, it will become http://lordpi.com

Regardless of where the website lives, it will remain true to you, our dear readers.  And it won’t be sold to Aol for anything less than what Techcrunch recently received.  So don’t worry and be happy.
