A new website name – Ramen Software

The website just got a new, proper name – Ramen Software, and a new address – ramensoftware.com.

The rammichael.com domain was registered on April 2007, picked after my nickname which I came up with a year or two earlier – RaMMicHaeL. The nickname came to mind as a combination of a band name I liked back then and my personal name, all in mixed case which I found to be cool.

The website’s home page presented a collection of small utilities I made in my free time, and there was also a forum for discussing these utilities and other random topics. The website’s name was simply RaMMicHaeL’s home page. Some historical snapshots can be found on the Wayback Machine:

And I was even able to find a local copy of one of the earliest versions of the website’s home page.

In June 2010, I moved the website to WordPress. Here’s a snapshot from July 2010. You can see that aside from new content, the website has been mostly unchanged since then.

Today, the website gets a new name and a new address. In addition, there’s a new home page which lists the available software, just like in the old days. All the rest stays the same – the website is still about my software and I, Michael, am still its sole owner.

We’ll see what the future brings, but for now, I hope the new name will be easier to type, remember, and reason about for new visitors.

P.S. Why ramen? Well, ramen is a great dish, and I also got to keep the first three letters of the old name.

Hello world!

Welcome to my blog!

This is actually my first post here, all the older ones are imported from the old forum, which I wanted to get rid of for some time already but didn’t have the time to.
Now, as my previous hosting crashed, and WordPress 3.0 was released, I decided to give it a try.

Enjoy your stay 🙂
