Nigerian domain spam farmers.
As it has been widely reported in circles near me, so mainly just to me, the domain bearing my name was lost some years ago to a nigerian spam farmer. They snapped it up rather quickly once I missed the expiration date. Why I'll never know, but there was a time when I had a rather high search engine rank for "Saying the Alphabet backwards" - and I may have to get that post back to the world again soon.... Anyways...
Duh, duh duh duhhhh!!! I have it back now. Hard to believe that the spam farmer who once owned my name could let it go, but by some miracle he did. And so now it points to this page. joelspangler.com lives another day!
Now, there remains a few issues, among them the fact that my domain is still tied to some spam/malware blacklists from the years spent parking malicious ads and the like, so it currently just redirects here. Hopefully I will figure out a way to sort that out someday soon.
That's about it for the day. May everyone have a wonderful evening. I'm spending the rest of my evening supporting a software deployment and listening to Snarky Puppy's newest album, Culcha Vulcha. it's different for them in some ways, but I'm now on my 3rd, maybe even 4th listen, and it's really starting to grow on me. I'd recommend it to anyone who digs a bit of modern fusion jazz, leaning more towards jazz.
