Due to an email I received from Amazon.com claiming trademark rights on my previous domain, I have changed this website’s domain name to AFTVnews.com.
The new name may not be as good as the previous one, but I wanted to stay away from any reference to the word ‘Fire’, yet keep the name similar. Alternately, you can access the site from www.TheDeviceWhichShallNotBeNamed.com ;-P. I am also forced to give up my previous Facebook page, so the new page is at http://facebook.com/AFTVnews. If you use Facebook, a ‘like’ would be greatly appreciated. Thankfully I am able to change my Twitter account to @AFTVnews without losing any followers.
My biggest concern are the referral links across the internet pointing to the old domain. I have setup a redirect which automatically sends visitors to the new domain, however Amazon is only giving me until this Monday to turn over the old domain. Once Amazon controls the old domain, they will likely disable the redirect and all of those links will go dead. If you come across one of these old links in forums/wikis/comments, please do what you can to get them updated. I would greatly appreciate it.
By request, I have created a donation page. Please do not feel obligated to donate for any reason. I am part of Amazon’s Associate program, which means I get a small kickback anytime someone buys an app that I’ve linked to. While it’s not enough to live by, the money I make from this program is enough to pay for the website’s expenses. The more I receive, the more I can justify putting as much time into this website as I do, so please only donate if you have the money to give and feel compelled.
Lastly, this ordeal has taken a lot of my time recently. I apologize if the post quality or frequency has diminished the last few days. I should be getting back in the swing of things now that the name change is complete.
