A PURL is a Persistent Uniform Resource Locator.
Functionally, a PURL is a URL. However, instead of pointing directly to the location of an Internet resource, a PURL points to an intermediate resolution service. The PURL resolution service associates the PURL with the actual URL and returns that URL to the client. The client can then complete the URL transaction in the normal fashion. In Web parlance, this is a standard HTTP redirect.

Since I needed a (free) static alias for my homepage URL, I did some searching and this came as the best choice. Does anyone have a better solution? :D

Iepurasul statea pe o buturuga si scria de zor ceva. Trece vulpea prin zona si il intreaba:
- Ce scrii acolo, iepurasule?
- O lucrare stiintifica despre cum iepurasii mananca vulpi.
- Ceeee?
La care iepurasul impasibil:
- Vino sa-ti arat...
Vine lupul pe langa butucul iepurasului.
- Ce scrii acolo, iepurasule?
- O lucrare stiintifica despre cum iepurasii mananca lupi.
- Ceeee, ai inebunit?
La care iepurasul impasibil:
- Vino sa-ti arat...
Trece prin apropiere ursul:
- Ce scrii acolo, iepurasule?
- O lucrare stiintifica despre cum iepurasii mananca ursi.
- Ceeee, nu le mai ai pe toate?
La care iepurasul impasibil:
- Vino sa-ti arat...
La doua sute de metrii mai departe o pestera in care zac ciolane de vulpe si lup. Langa, leul roade o laba proaspata de urs.

Morala: "Nu tema lucrarii tale stiintifice e importanta ci cine e indrumatorul tau de proiect..."

I have passed the transitional stage of internet geekhood
I was cashiering at work today, and was punching in the code for plums, which is 4040 and the 0 key doesn't work this well, so I punched it in wrong. The machine flashed up "Item Not Found: 404" and I actually laughed out loud!

Loituma - Leva's polka

OK, all stareted when I got this link on YM (...spam, obviously) and I got it once, twice... many times, until I cracked and took a sneak peek! What can I say, it's fun and it made me smile.

Well, if anyone else thinks this melody to be so catchy, I can tell you that there is also a live video and you can also find the .mp3 version...
