Virtual Vellum's Sordid Past

My allergies have been messing with my head lately so I'm taking the day off from my blog.

However, I was doing a web search and found a site where was on a list of expired web domains as of 2007. This made me wonder - "Hey, somebody had this domain before me. I wonder what they used it for."

So off I went to the "Wayback Machine," the Internet Archive where you can look up old websites and see what they looked like on various dates. Well, ahem. Apparently was owned by a site of, shall we say, ill repute from 1998 through 2002. It looks like it was just a redirect - if you went to, it pointed you to some other site, but still. Ugh. How sordid!
