    The joys of domaining... when you wake up at 6am and find Jacob Rees Mogg has not renewed his .co.uk name.

    Oh well, for £4-50...

    Weirdly, the frippery I've uploaded over breakfast doesn't resolve on my UK-based laptop, but it does resolve via my partner's VPN via the Netherlands. Does it resolve for you? I've deleted all cookies and refreshed but my laptop is refusing it. Mystified. Edit: now sorted.

    Maybe things work out better for him abroad lol

    I recently bought a domain name from a firm and changed the nameservers and forwarded to my site.

    On my Virgin Media connection (and those in my direct area) it took 2 days to update, while everywhere else was practically instant.

    Thanks Dee, I've saved that link for future use.

    The site is resolving now. It was strange, because I've uploaded hundreds of pages and usually with uk domains the change is almost immediate.

    Anyway, time to get on with the rest of the day!

    Imagine a life and a career at the very top and it's likely this is all that you'll be remembered for. Couldn't be happening to a nicer person.

    He's worth about £100m, i'm sure he doesn't care about a couple of memes.

    Oh don't worry, he'll be remembered for plenty more. This event will go down in history as the one time he wasn't actively damaging the country.

    Many in this country would do well to start listening and reading people that aren't saying what they want to hear.

    You are Websaway's wanksockpuppet and I claim my £5.

    Only this Eton and Oxford-educated multi-millionaire silver-spoon hedge-funder son of a Times Editor can save us from the nasty elite establishment! :) Apparently by moving his funds to Ireland and advising against investing the UK. Spiffing-spaffing old fellow.

    You can tell by way he dresses and pontificates that he is immensely vain. Money does many things but humiliation always feels like humiliation, especially the self inflicted kind.
