What I have yet to do with this site..

  • Figure out how to change the domain name from an AWS EC2 domain to a domain I buy.

I quite like mg.com but I’m sure that’s taken. Fuck. It is taken. What about mcg.com. Yup that’s taken too. What the hell! wood.com isn’t taken! I need to get on that quick.
