My cat Cookie is relieved!
I finally decided to go with my own domain.
Sadly, thomasfenske-dot-com was already in use.
No, seriously, it was. Kudos to you, thomas fenske, wherever you are.
Then I thought about my long-time handle, thefensk … it is a user name, it is an email handle, it is even my twitter handle … why not use it as a unique and catchy domain name?
So, thefensk.com was born. I think Cookie approves.
In case you were wondering, my name is pronounced Fence-key … but going way back some people seemed to call me Fensk … not that I liked it, but I tolerated it.
in the early days of the internet (I’ve been on it since long before Al Gore ever heard of it) I could easily use fenske as a username. But there are more of us than you might think and it wasn’t long before variations were needed. It is not a common name but it is not rare either. Once, on some site, “thefensk” was one of the suggested usernames and I sort of liked the idea of it. The suggestion came about, I’m sure, due to my first name and middle initial .. THomas E FENSKe … thefensk. I liked it.
So there it is … same website (for now) but I will be updating it very soon.
