Sub-Domain Ideas

So obviously I own my domain (forsbergville.com). After reading about mapping my MX records for email to Google Apps, I started thinking of other ideas for my subdomains (current and future). Sub-Domain Ideas www.forsbergville.com should resolve to primary domain on webhost (of course) eric.forsbergville.com should resolve to this blog angela.forsbergville.com should resolve to her blog hiking.forsbergville.com should resolve to my hiking blog files.forsbergville.com should resolve to my Dropbox (www.getdropbox.com) music.forsbergville.com should resolve to Apache running at home on my media server chat.forsbergville.com should resolve to to jabber server running on my web host mail.forsbergville.com should resolve to google apps per this post legacy.forsbergville.com should resolve to a Telnet/ssh java-based control on a black background webpage that is automatically attempting to login to the webserver using ssh (green lettering – yeah). Installed tools would include Gopher, Lynx, Pico, Pine, etc. Just for fun. The ideas will keep coming I’m sure, but I think that this is a great start!

This is – indeed – quite a bit of type-a over-planning-in-advance, I realize, but please bear with me here: I need to get my saved IMAP folders off MobileMe now! I want it on my GoDaddy account now because I get free email there with my hosting and domain plans! My f-ing domain is there man … I want my username@mac.com saved messages moved – now. See there? Just had a massive type-a attack – right there, literally via my fingertips thru the keyboard out over the Internets and to your internet connection to your high-speed modem (probably) then to a router (still – most have one, nut I realize I am now limiting my audience, yes, however if you are a redneck on dial-up — still — ? You won’t ever read my blog anyhow. I didn’t code it for you bro – you are literally learning e-Bay at this very moment, trying desperately to figure out why it takes so very long to load-up every image) .. [where [ ... ]
