Idiocy, idiocy, and more idiocy.

I really, really hate it when I have problems deciding what I want to do about something, but I've finally figure out that I'm having problems with one issue because I haven't a freaking clue what to do.

The problem is a domain name I picked up a few years ago and was originally intended for the whole translation, GH, fanfic etc. site that's on RF. Back when I got the domain name, private registration wasn't an option for my registrar so I never went about openly using it for that site. Instead the hosting for that domain was mostly used to play with different scripts and to host my photo gallery. A month ago, problems arose when some *censored* decided to UL a trojan horse to the gallery which caused the account to be suspended. I *think* my original plan was to kill the hosting, keep the domain name and eventually put it somewhere.

Last night though, for some unknown reason, I decided to pick up a CHEAP hosting package for that domain and ended up getting *another* domain name. >_<;; I have no idea what I'm doing here now. I have domain with site which was formerly my photo gallery and little else but was supposed to be the translation site and has public WHOIS. I have a new domain name which has private WHOIS and could do the same. BUT, FB's ending soon and I have no idea to what extent I'll be continuing that site after FB ends. I supposed I could continue with Tsubasa but have no idea if anyone's licensed it yet? (In any case, I do want to at least finish vol 2 for sure).

So now I'm in a quandary of,

- do I move my original domain registration (potentially end up with a fifth domain!) add private WHOIS and move the site off RF,
- leave the site on RF and just recreate my original photo gallery on the new host,
- kill the site entirely and park the domain,
- use the new domain for the site on RF possibly moving it to the new hosting account
- ??

I think the problem stems from my original desire for anonymity with regards to the RF site and not having any ties with my personal life / other 'net activities, but since the original domain has my personal photo gallery, and RF now also has some of my travel photos, I'm not sure how to proceed anymore. The two galleries are overlapping and its confusing trying to keep the two separate / straight. Add LJ to this pot given that website hosting allows for blogging as well and... >_<;; I'm feeling like there are bits of me everywhere and that I'm stretched really thin. (I need to pull myself together more perhaps. :P)

I finally remembered what it was that I was thinking about WRT FB that needed clarification. Kyo's father's words of "I won't allow *" can also be translated as "I won't forgive *" (yurusanai) I'd forgotten to mention that (it's been mentioned elsewhere I'm pretty sure) that this word has a dual meaning between allow and forgive depending on context. In my case I went with the he won't allow Kyo (to live freely etc.), but can also be taken as him saying he won't forgive Kyo.

Otherwise, a couple pictures I came across on my system as I hunt down my photos again (assuming I do recreate that photo gallery). I miss travelling sometimes. *sigh*
