welcome back, old friend
After a few months of fighting, I was finally able to buy back www.thomaspeipert.com. Note to self: always pay your domain bill on time. If not, the company you register with can put it in what’s called a redemption period and charge you upwards of $100 to get it back. It’s like holding your name for ransom. In my case, the company didn’t even warn me it was about to expire. Anyway, I waited for them to release it back to the public and bought it for $11 with a new company. Be careful out there on the Interwebs.
