Hi. Welcome to my website!  Honestly, I do not try to share this website with anyone, but I don’t try and hide it either. It’s more a less a place that I use to vent personal grievances or just sort out my thoughts on subjects that interest me – like any other blog.

I started the website on an outdated notion (spurring from the dot com boom) that we had to protect our names. I watched people snatch up hundreds of the best domain names, and yet I didn’t capitalize on it. Maybe if I’m lucky, some other Greg Percifield in the world will become rich and famous and they can then buy my domain for a hefty price.

If you’d like to know a bit more about me, here is an extended bio.
