<latemp_subject "About the Location Change" />

Well <a href="http://t2.technion.ac.il/">t2.technion.ac.il</a>
is the Technion's undergraduate students' server. It gives personal homepages
as part of its service, so I set up a homepage there, and gradually populated
it with more and more things.

Since I'm hopefully about to graduate soon, it is probable that I will lose
the account on t2, and therefore now need to find a new hosting and location.

I chose <a href="http://www.eu.org/">EU.org</a> as a domain name service 
provider, because they give free permanent domain names for organizations and
individuals. Since I'm actually proud of being Israeli, I picked up the 
<tt>il.eu.org</tt> suffix to give 
<a href="http://shlomif.il.eu.org/"><tt>shlomif.il.eu.org</tt></a>. 
(<tt>shlomif</tt> is my username, and common Internet alias).

I'd rather not try to get a super domain (such as <tt>www.shlomif.org</tt>
or <tt>www.shlomif.org.il</tt>) because these things cost money and expire
after a while, and may be hijacked by all kinds of Internet low-life. 
<tt>shlomif.il.eu.org</tt>, on the other hand, is all mine and will remain so
, forever. It's sad that the current DNS service works like that, so I have
to find the best solution.
