Change of top level domain to dev

Frank Mueller
On Feb 28th the top level domain .dev has been available for all. So for me as a developer it’s the best possible TLD to get. One day later I reserved two different ones: themue.dev as a replacement for my former personal domain themue.name and tideland.dev as a replacement of all my different Tideland domains into one. The personal domain is now changed, the Tideland domains will follow these days.

Restart of the blog

These days it happened again. This time it has been Twitter which changed the services it provides and forced external applications to change due to changes of the API. So it more and more follows Facebook to become a propriatary system, closed and best without any external client. But there are definitely better clients than the original one, in my case it’s Tweetbot. This change made me thinking about all those closed systems today.
