I turned 35 years old today, on July 11! It was only 35 short years ago that I was born.
My family and I started off the weekend by avoiding the Aquapalooza Event going on Lake Travis, to a more family friendly gathering, by going to Blanco State Park, swimming and eating some good BBQ! We then went to the refreshingly cold waters of Blue Hole in Wimberley.
For my birthday, I went sailing on Lake Travis with a friend on his new sailboat, the Wiki Wiki! Then my friends and family met at the Shuck Shack for horseshoes and some good cajun style sea food and BP Gulf Oil free BBQ oysters!
On the flip side, this site, matthewcomer.com is about 7 years old. I lost the domain name for a while. It expired and was kidnapped and ransom was demanded by a group of Kenyan rebels. They demanded $200 dollars in their crude extortion plot, in what is commonly done to domain names that expire. I think it was directly related to an online chat gone bad between the technical support team at aplus.net, formerly www.names4ever.com and myself. These were the days before godaddy.com and what has become their ever increasing price plans, annoying advertisements, and convoluted site structure and features. I digress, during these, what are now known as the dark years, the alternate site of matthewcomer.net was born. In due time, I received the rights to the domain name that I once own, I was victorious over the Kenyan tribe and will stand strong against future battles.
