Ah, the deep subdomain questions of the internet age?
–UPDATE– OK, she likes neither. I tried explaining that the URLs are for me only, just to create shorter links but she was having none of it. She thinks I can either cut'n'paste her long @ss URL or type it. I presume (if pressed) it would turn into a "if you love me, you will type my URL" kinda things. Well, I do love her, so I guess I'll type the URL.
But, since I really, really love her, perhaps I'll manage her dns and hook her up subdomains over @ merrindonahue.com. Of course, her domain would be in transition and unavailable for a few hours, but she is at work all day. Hmmm….
