    Spending about an hour to walk around Coventry, using Google map. Curious about the city in 2009. The library, Waterstone’s, Barclays and Netwest banks, city centre, the University, the cathedral, the vanishing tourist centre :), Q block, the small shop where a fat white cat used to stare at me almost a decade ago.

    I got a great book sent to me: The Phoenix Rises. About the right time too. A reminder that I’m still one of the coventrian phoenix. Any effort to destroy just make a new, brighter, stronger me. Coventry inspires, still.

    Any new friend would laugh at me for my unique domain: kun.co.ro. In fact, I laughed at that idea too, when I realised that that funny domain is possibly registered. It was a frozen winter in the beginning of 2001. I sat alone in our temporary computer room (on our dormitory — we have well established computer rooms in our campus). Curiously I saw the rabbits running to the ice-covered bushes. I admit I forget what happened next. But I found myself roaming on Romanian sites. And ending in a German-owned shared-domain services. There I found SLD co-ro, sa-ro, or-ro, etc; and in less than 1 minute decided to register kun.co.ro. And in no time, I decided what I would do with the domain: I’d move my 6-months-old blog to the new domain. Then laughing. Yeah, it’s silly. So silly. But then I felt blessed 😀 :D.
