During this period of relative inactivity, I’ve taken the opportunity to migrate my ‘cmelodysax.co.uk’ website to a new primary domain name – ‘ csax.net ‘ Time to reflect that the C Saxophone is capable of being part of the modern world, and not just the “C Melody” sax of the 20’s. There’s also a slight ‘play on words’ as I live on the Dorset / Jurassic coast, ‘C Sax’ sounds like ‘Sea Sax’ – well, I like it !
The old cmelodysax.co.uk address will still point to the new csax.net website, so any existing links you have to my website should still work, and there will also be times when cmelodysax.co.uk will still show in the browser address bar – due to the fact that some of the existing databases like the blog are tied to the old name – but once I nail all the links down it should be showing as csax.net most of the time, especially out on the website pages. I may, in time, migrate the blog to a newer – less cluttered – theme, which will then let me fully change that to csax.net as well, unless I discover a nifty way to techno-fudge it in the meantime.
With all this comes a new (easy to remember) email address, firstname.lastname@example.org – and, when I’m away from the PC, I have a phone and a wi-fi PDA which both handle emails, so I can pick up emails to the new address on those as well. Naturally, all of the old email addresses will still work for the forseeable future, just like the old links…
And, having a Spring-clean in Autumn, two old linked url/domain’s ( ‘cmelody.co.uk’, and ‘c-melody.co.uk’ ) will not be renewed next year, so in the very unlikely event that anyone uses those, please change over to ‘csax.net’. If anyone ever uses Windows Live Messenger etc., I’ve forsaken my old ‘dorsetdriftwood’ and ‘cmelodysax’ identities for email@example.com as well – yet more stuff to reconfigure (keeping those grey cells busy, sigh…)
The new name will also herald the move to a wider range of topics here, as – to be honest – there are many more interesting things in life than just saxophones, lovely as they are… Always open to put up topics on behalf of any readers, just email me with details on the links above.
