I’ve Reacquired privateline.com

Thanks to the generosity of Ken Schmidt of SteelInTheAir.com,(external link), I have taken back the domain privateline.com.

privateline.com was originally designed in 1995 as a complement to my hardcopy magazine about the telephone system private line. Over time the site grew to be a telecommunications writing hub, at one point spanning 400+ pages and in 2002 getting two million hits.

Those days are long past and I won’t bore you now with stories of text browsers, e-mail responders, or going to Def Con when it was new. Just know that I intend to bring the domain into the modern era, as a WordPress site that can be easily maintained. I’ll put the history content back up first, as I clear the dead links that have accumulated over years of privateline.com being an archive.

Always something more to do.

    Hey, sounds good, Tom! I guess Ken is busy with his own site. Maybe we’ll do some more together.
