Went into the University for the first time

I went into the university for the first time today. It is less than a kilometer from the apartment. I had to go there to finalize certain documents regarding my accomodation. I arrived at the university during the lunch time and hence I had to wait for a couple of hours for the office staffs to return. During the time, I roamed around the campus. The place is aesthetically pleasing, however, it is pretty small, especially since where I did my bachelor's, IIT Patna, had a campus spread across over 500 acres. I also went to the nearby Lidl to get a few frozen pizzas. I had that for lunch, evening snack and dinner. I had thought about cooking something for dinner, but I felt a bit lazy to do the same. However, I did modify the last frozen pizza by adding some mushrooms, pizza sauce and pepper.

Bought a new domain - chickfort.com

A couple of days ago, I bought a domain named 'chickfort.com'. I have been wanting to own a '.com' domain for quite a while now, and I didn't want to buy one from a reseller. Every now and then, I used to go to one of the domain registrants and search for interesting names that would come into my mind. This has been going on for quite a while, and I finally found a domain name that is short enough and is a combination of two simple English words.

The aforementioned is not the main reason why I chose to buy this domain. The words 'chick' and 'fort' coupled together could be loosely translated into the endonym of my hometown, Kozhikode. Additionally, I believe that the domain name could be potentially used for a wide-variety of purposes.

The interesting thing is that, I have been receive calls from a few software and web development companies after I made this purchase. I wonder if the domain registrar is secretly sending the data to the marketing teams in the region. They could gain from selling my contact information, or, by making me purchase their "privacy protection" feature. I have owned this domain, 'buddygo.net', for quite a while and I never received such nagging calls in the past, and that adds to my aforementioned suspicion.

I have temporarily redirected the new domain to this blog, so that such marketing teams would find something active in the domain and refrain themselves from attempting to contact me.
