Well, it’s been a little while since I last added one of these to my little retro internet project but… welcome to Windows XP Home x86 with Mozilla Suite 1.0 which is now on Period Sites in Period Browsers.
I have also taken the opportunity to renovate the the various tag pages and add a lot more information to them! Why not go and take a look!
So… it appears that Google, in their infinite
wisdom stupidity, has bought and launched the top level domain ‘zip’ and thus introduced such wonderful domains as ‘https://details.zip’, ‘http://taxforms.zip’ or, as you can see below, ‘https://financialstatement.zip‘. And thus possibly confusing everyone, for ever, all of the time.
But Google is not alone in partaking in this stupidity. ICANN, who should have been on the ball and who already had rules about homophones in UTF domains, seem to have let this slip though without a single thought.
The damned fools.
And it’s time for an aide-mémoire for a fact that seems to be disappearing into the ether.
