Just as a heads up, in case anyone thinks they are important to keep, a
couple of Pieter's "book" domains are due to expire later this month:
There's also one other:
which will expire in about a year.
All three are just redirects (on WikiDot, I think) to the GitBook pages:
(respectively) and the books are also, eg, on Amazon (print on demand):
which I suspect is the main way that people would find them these days
(certainly if you know the title, the Amazon links are near the top of
the results searching on Google). They're also linked from:
(direct to the GitBook pages and Amazon pages).
If anyone feels strongly enough about the books retaining their own
domain name that redirects to the book page (on GitBook or Amazon) to
want to pay for the domains (about 16 EUR/year/domain on Gandi I think)
let me know.
Personally I don't think there's a specific need for the book domains to
be retained, or any significant risk from them being snapped up by
advertising sites/scammers, as I think the GitBook/Amazon locations are
much better known/linked too, and there wasn't anything else on the domains.
So my plan is just to let all three expire (psychopathcode.com,
thepsychopathcode.com later this month; cultureandempire.com next year),
rather than pay to renew them myself.
Let me know directly if you feel differently,
