Name Change

Howdy,

After getting tired of typing in the awfully long
‘dreamcatcher.homeunix.org’, and my wrist started hurting, I decided
to go ahead and register a shorter domain name, which was in my radar
for a couple months. So, now this site will be available as
awkly.org. For those who doesn’t know what awkly means, here’s the
Webster‘s definition:

Awkly Awk"ly, adv.
  1. In an unlucky (left-handed) or perverse manner. [Obs.] –Holland.
  2. Awkwardly. [Obs.] –Fuller.

So, basically awkly comes from awkward, for which Wordnet has a
lenghty definition:

awkward
  1. (adj) causing inconvenience; "they arrived at an awkward time"
  2. lacking grace or skill in manner or movement or performance;
    "an awkward dancer"; "an awkward gesture"; "too awkward
    with a needle to make her own clothes"; "his clumsy
    fingers produced an awkward knot" [ant: {graceful}]
  3. difficult to handle or manage especially because of shape;
    "an awkward bundle to carry"; "a load of bunglesome
    paraphernalia"; "clumsy wooden shoes"; "the cello, a
    rather ungainly instrument for a girl" [syn: {bunglesome},
    {clumsy}, {ungainly}]
  4. not elegant or graceful in expression; "an awkward prose
    style"; "a clumsy apology"; "his cumbersome writing style"; "if
    the rumor is true, can anything be more inept than to repeat it
    now?" [syn: {clumsy}, {cumbersome}, {inapt}, {inept},
    {ill-chosen}]
  5. hard to deal with; especially causing pain or embarrassment;
    "awkward (or embarrassing or difficult) moments in the
    discussion"; "an awkward pause followed his remark"; "a
    sticky question"; "in the unenviable position of resorting
    to an act he had planned to save for the climax of the
    campaign" [syn: {embarrassing}, {sticky}, {unenviable}]
  6. not at ease socially; unsure and constrained in manner;
    "awkward and reserved at parties"; "ill at ease among
    eddies of people he didn’t know"; "was always uneasy with
    strangers" [syn: {ill at ease(p)}, {uneasy}]

And… why did I choose such an awkly (no pun intended) domain name?
Well, because I identified myself with the definition, specially the
part about reserved at parties and his cumbersome writing style :)
