Hi Mike, I'm responding to the message you left me Here. I admit I'm a little embarrassed to have created a site with the same basic idea as yours, and with such a similar domain name, without knowing yours existed. This being the case, however, and seeing that we have the same basic goal, I'd like to accept your offer to contribute to your site rather than maintain what is essentially a much less developed version of your site. If you'd like I can redirect my domain here, otherwise I'll just take the site down and post a link to resettacode. Also, while I appreciate the offer, there is no need to buy me a 'replacement domain' or compensate me in any way; it was my mistake overlooking your site before creating my own. If you need to contact me you can reply here or email me at

Heh; don't feel too embarrassed. Take a look at all the sites I missed before creating this one. :) An HTTP 301 redirect is fine, though if you'd like, I can set up a virtual host to handle the redirect on this server, so you don't have to keep covering the hosting costs. You'd still have to point the domain name at the IP address, though; doesn't provide DNS services, and I don't have my own DNS server. As for participating; poke around, check out the templates and the site structure. I have a feeling you'll get the hang of it pretty quickly. --Michael Mol 03:50, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
I've set the domain to forward here. It may take a while for the update to propagate. Hosting isn't an issue, I have a VPS that I use for my other sites and development.
