Happy Birthday, Complete Review!

Internet Culture Lit-Crit
M. A. Orthofer's The Complete Review (which encompasses The Literary Saloon) turns ten years old today, and the barkeep has produced a refreshingly reflective retrospective for the occasion: The Complete Review: The First Decade.

I heartily agree with Orthofer's emphasis on the importance of unchanging URLs on this ever-changing web of ours, and I am glad to hear that he expects to keep running the site pretty much the same way for at least another decade. Salut!

I agree that URLs need to remain the same and consistent. Would a well-known company change their name? Usually not because reaching people is usually about brand recognition.
Keep up the great work!

The Complete Review is a great source for book recommendations you wouldn't normally get. Great site, great consistency.

Touche, TKG! But I will tell you that I tried as hard as I could to keep that URL. It really hurt me to lose it, but it was my mistake not to use a custom URL (litkicks.com) from the beginning. Now that I own my domain name, that will hopefully never happen again.

redirects in .htaccess?

That would have worked if the folks at Charm.net allowed it, Bud. But there was a bit of a billing dispute around the time I switched hosts, so I didn't think it would fly.
