The forum is now directly attached to a domain name.
« on: March 12, 2016, 01:56:55 AM »
I already own www.movsd.com and no longer use it for its now ancient purpose so I have placed a start page on it that links directly to this forum and to my large tailor's shears site which allowed me to use one of the images from the site on the start page. This is a nice short domain name that is easily remembered as it was registered long ago before all of the easy to remember names were taken. I need a favour from our members, please check the URL and if it works OK for you, would you start to spread it around in the different venues that you frequent as I think we now have enough basic material to be useful to a wide range of people.

The complete URL is http://www.movsd.com

As an aside, the name "movsd" is not without meaning, it is an instruction in x86 32 bit assembler and was introduced into Intel processors with the advent of 32 bit. Its virtue was that instead of copying 1 byte at a time, it would copy 4 bytes at a time and the pun with it being a domain name is that of the "Big Mover".

You may change your mind with the weight, they are a pair of 15.5 inch Heinisch shears and weigh 1300 grams. Truly magnificent on double layer heavy fleece but you do notice the weight.

That's great. It's a nice entrance portal to here and looks good.

Awesome, it will be nice to have it easier to get to!

Cute about the x86 instruction too.
