First toe in the water…

And here we are, first post at www.deelman.com. I have had this Internet domain as "early" as 1999 but up to now not used the webspace coming with it. I realised in 1999 that having your lastname as an Internet domain represents some value: each family member a truly personal email address for life. Fortunately, the name Deelman is not very common in the Netherlands or elsewhere, so it was not that tough to hunt it. Today, Google generates some 20,300 hits for "deelman". There is a remote Deelman family member who put up a well functioning website at www.deelman.info where you can find the digital pedigree of the Deelman family in the Netherlands – in case you would want to know all about the Deelman heritage (?). Getting deelman.com in 1999 with Euronet Internet costed me NLG 450 per year, over 200 Euros. Now in 2004 with ISP 123XS, I pay about half that amount for a far better service. Technology has brought us many benefits, hopefully the spam filters and security shields will keep up with that pace…
