Alden Bates' Weblog

Feigning normality since 1973

Hooray for vanity domains! (and new cameras)

Filed in: Website Management.

This weblog is now located at, because I can. And also because it's easier to remember than '' (the old subdomain redirects here, of course). Please update your links and bookmarks. :)

So this post isn't a total wash, here's a picture I took last weekend from the top of Cannon Point:
[High shot!]

In the foreground is Upper Hutt, with the Hutt River winding its way up the right-hand side. The bridge at lower right is the one I mentioned in this post last year. Beyond the hill in middle centre is Lower Hutt (It's actually quite a lot bigger than it appears in that photo. Yeah, as if we haven't heard that one before), beyond which is Wellington Harbour, on the other side of which is Wellington (yes, where Peter Jackson lives). In the far far background, you may be able to make out the very dim outline of the South Island.

This photo was taken with my shiny new Canon Powershot digital camera. :)

Great photo!

You've got me thinking that maybe I should get around to grabbing my own name as a URL and pointing it at my blog...

While I am tempted to get one, I think I'll wait for another godaddy sale.
