did i tell you

about the wonderful name of this blog? i created designoutloud back in 2003 when i left intervoice and went solo as a voice interaction designer. well, we all called it vui then, but vixd really fits better. but other sites address topics like that. so, i had this name, a crude website, and a logo, and we were in love. but, through the years and a cruel twist of events, i have lost that url. makes me sick. and it i can conveniently blame it on the user experience provided by the hosting service at the time, hostway. i have since switched due to that problem. and getting through it was awful, too. techs basically accused me of causing the issue. live and move the hell on. now someone else has the url and wants $1500 for it. sentiment isn't that strong. we'll see...
