One of the main things you want when you're creating a website, is that (new) people are able to find you. People don't enter random URL's in the address bar of their browser, so they won't find your website that way. You'll need to share your domain name (URL) on as many places as possible. It's one of the tips that I gave a while ago.
The most common places to begin sharing your domain, are online places like commenting on blogs, placing it on forums, sharing your site with social networking sites; You've probably heard them before. But this article is listing extraordinary places you can leave your domain name for free.
OK, I have to admit: Not many things in this world is actually free. You'll still need to do something (time / effort) to actually make it work. If you have any places where you can drop your domain name, feel free to share them in the comments! I'm pretty sure more people would want some innovative and creative ideas where they can share their website. Every visitor on your website is valuable, so every hit counts and letting people remember your name is critical to do so.

It's been a while that I got a chance to write another post here. Currently, I'm really busy with school/work (just got a "job" at InfoSupport - love it!) which takes a lot of my time.
When my classmates and myself wrote the Getting Groovy in an SOA Study, we added some cool programming quotes that was a real addition to the report. When searching for those inspiring programming quotes, there were loads of others that are really funny (and true) where I (and probably many more) can relate to.
Here are two of my favourite programming quotes:
- Chris Heilmann
“ It's hard enough to find an error in your code when you're looking for it; it's even harder when you've assumed your code is error-free. ”
- Steve McConnell
Check out these other 25 to see if you can relate!

Six months ago, I've started researching a fairly new programming language called Groovy together with a couple of my classmates. Our task was to investigate Groovy, Grails, and their position in a SOA environment (Remember I wrote a review about the SOA Symposium?).
Looking back at the research, I must say I really love Groovy. It's an agile dynamic language for the Java Platform with loads of cool stuff. I'm planning on making some Groovy/Grails tutorials, just to show others how strong this programming language is.
More information about the paper:
- Written in English (By dutch students, so please forgive any spelling mistakes).
- A total of 74 pages
- Explains many aspects of Groovy, you could use the first couple of chapters as a cheat cheet for Groovy.
- Pretty nice styled and easy to read
Simply download and read the document if you're into SOA, Groovy and/or Grails (or want to learn it), a Java Programmer and want to learn something else, or another programmer that wants to learn another (fun and very cool!) programming language!
I want to thank Bart van Zeeland, Youssef Elmessaoudi, Gaya Kessler and Jaap Mengers for being my colleagues during this research. I'd also like to thank Rody Middelkoop and Sander Leer for lecturing us.
You can also read more research papers from fellow classmates about Spring & OSGi and Webservice Transactions (Dutch).

Time for a short tip: What are the (user)names / identity names that should try to grab as soon as possible? You want to identify yourself all over the net when you have a blog / website, so you should be the only one that's able to use that specified name. But what are the places where you should try to capture a name? Here's a list of a couple of names that you should register at this moment (if you didn't do it already). If you wait, the name could be grabbed by someone else already!
Before you read the rest of the article, make sure you already know what you already have in your inventory of names. If you have all points stated below checked, you're doing fine. If not, you should really try to grab those names before someone else does. I try to identify myself with Marcofolio.net, although it doesn't work all the time. You want to brand your name, so that once someone enters your name on a search engine, you'll be the only one that will be found. Here are a couple of tips.
