Though dot-com is still the most generic internet domain, the mixed message between SemanticBible being a freely available resource but being hosted as a .com was starting to bother me. So i registered semanticbible.org, and i think i've got the redirection working more or less okay now. I intend to hang onto the .com domain as well. Please let me know if you have problems: if i have a strong suit, domain and web site administration isn't it.

Having the weekend at home with visiting family gave me some time to
work on digitizing my music library. A few weeks ago, i bought a 80Gb
external hard disk, primarily to have a secondary source for music,
photos, and personal backup. So i've been going through our collection
of a couple hundred CDs and copying them, one by painful one. Of
course, no single disk takes that long (a couple of minutes), so how
bad could it be? But there are lots of them, every disk needs to be put
in and taken out, and it breaks up the time: so every now and then,
when i'm wandering about, i pop in another disk and let it rip.
All the usual problems about organizing information pop into this
project too. Most discs already have information in the media
database: but it's not always right. For example, a collection of
classic symphonies came up with genre=rock (roll over,
Beethoven!). A couple of my brother's
didn't have any entries at all: i took the time to edit and submit
those, but that's more pain than i'm willing to undertake for most.
Worst of all, the files are getting ripped as WMA, and i'm sure some
other formatwill eventually make these the digital equivalent of
I guess there's a lesson here about moving into the Digital Age:
just because it's in a digital form doesn't mean it's ready to go.
