Seeing as Google has virtually washed its hands about the lack of searches, I thought it was time to do something drastic.
Originally this site was called “The Other Fellow”, and some time later I changed its name to “A Pipe and a Keyboard”. I don’t know why I chose that name but it’s sort of stuck now. The original domain was therefore a bit confusing. To find “A Pipe and a Keyboard”, you had to enter theotherfellow.com. Not good. I therefore registered apipeandakeyboard.com and created a new site on the new domain containing the old posts and comments. So far so good.
My intention was that when the new site was up and running that I would point the old theotherfellow.com at the new site, and delete the old site and its database. Once people had gotten used to it, I would let the domain lapse and all vestiges of The Other Fellow would vanish.
Unfortunately my plans didn’t quite work out. For some reason, the old domain has refused to point. The new site is working perfectly with just a couple of very minor irritations that I can fix over time.
So if you are one of the tiny elete who have this site bookmarked, I would ask if you could change the domain name please.
Hopefully I will sort out the old domain shortly.
