This site now has a dedicated IP address. The transition caused some minor glitches; they lasted less than 12 hours but before I knew their duration I felt badly enough about their potential impact on students posting wiki projects on AFC Legal Resources that I extended the project deadline by two days. One student thanked the DNS gods responsible for the extension with “now I can get back to perendinating,” warming my heart by (1) showing she reads the blog, (2) properly using a form of “to perendinate,” and (3) acknowledging that the projects would still be completed at the last minute, which is how I would spend the extra time.
The IP address is 188.8.131.52. If you are on the other side of the world, need your Randall blog fix, and cannot remember “trudalane.net” then just type the IP address into your browser’s address bar and you will be good to go. It’s easy to remember:
- 67 = my age
- 222 = my IQ
- 61 = the number of years until my investment portfolio recovers sufficiently for me to retire, and
- 203 = the number of times this semester I’ve reminded students to check my BU Calendar if they want to find when and where I’ll be at the school.
Nothing could be simpler.
