I used to have the domain evilcheese.com, it was pretty relevant in the early 2000s and was run with a Drupal install that I put a load of crap on to and made it a rather ok thing.
Time moved on, the domain lapsed and that was that for a while as I returned back to the old faithful mmn.on.ca domain.
When I started moving mmn.on.ca in to a more business setting, I then had to look for a solution. I was also pretty interested in getting a much shorter domain. I went looking, using various combinations, some less logical than others.
In my mind I was trying to think of something that I connected with, and I remembered EvilCheese, I used to call it ec. On that fateful day 3rd January 2017, I tapped in ec to the domain search, filtered down to “Europe” and it was there staring at me in the eye... ec.je.
In the little namespace of the Balwick of Jersey., there she was, the name I saught. Slapped that on my credit card in a panic and it began. The site was my initial attempt at running all my blogging via WordPress. Later it would kick start ao.tc and vx.sg.
A recent addition to the board is the new domain, bbs.ec. It happened to be available, it worked, thank you Ecuador ! Around the same time, ec.gy was added to the Free DNS on Afraid.org for public sharing.
Now in the final leg of 2019 we find ourselves with eu.sb, what is turning in to a more centralised site for all the various little projects running (I might also move the Help Centre here). Why EU.SB ? Simple answer, autocorrect and I didn't realise it before the domain was registered :D Not a mega problem, it's kind of cool !
