due to my cheapness in many respects, i have stuck with batts.mine.nu for years. as many people could deduce, it is a freely availble deal through dyndns.com. being so, many people can register whatever they want.
lately there were a sweep of Russian hackers and phishers doing mis-deeds. this has pretty well jammed up many things for my site (i.e., search engines dropping me, email servers bouncing me, and even my own firefox warns me against visiting my site 😉
officially, i’m rebranded as hashbangbash.com
i set up a mod_rewrite web forward to allow the search engines to re-index
after a while of that, i will remove all ties that i have to batts.mine.nu, in the meanwhile i will be attempting to update anything that links, to instead point it to {blog,webmail,music,ftp,www}.hashbangbash.com

thanks all!
