Actually, I didn't change my web site name for either reason.  I changed it
because my ISP decided to discontinue their web hosting service.  (Or maybe
they just decided to discontinue their *free* web hosting service provided
to *home* users of their cable modem internet connectivity.  They may still
provide a *for charge* web hosting service to their *business* customers.
I wouldn't know.)  In any case, they "pulled the plug" on me.  I now pay
for a web hosting service that I used to get free.  But I will admit that
the new URL is more "cool" than the old one.  :-)
