I registered the thinkingcat.com domain name almost 17 years ago. I’ve used it very actively for e-mail through most of those years: borrowing friends’ server resources first in Sweden, then in Maryland, then in Virginia… It’s a well-traveled domain 😉
Websites have been a little more resource intensive to set up and maintain. I’m trying out WordPress as a website creation tool (CMS — like I have that much content to manage 😉 ). The next hurdle will be maintaining it!
Even so — this is still a split domain. Currently, mail is being handled through a shared server, and I’ve set this website up on a WordPress installation on a virtual machine I’ve rented. Not even on the same coasts of the continent, let alone on the same network. This is the sort of fun you can have with a domain!
This is pretty much a quiet beta release. I plan to update the “publications”and “media” sections of the site to be a repository of those things (because “repository” sounds so much better than “digital detritus on my home computer”).
