    About 20 years ago, i stumbled across a website that fascinated me. It was maintained by somebody using a pseudonym and built in a puzzling way, which made it even more intriguing. The website was all about searching and reverse engineering, two topics that were close to my heart back then and the website became an invaluable source of knowledge for me. I believe that what I learned back then is in part responsible for who I am today.

    About 10 years ago, I was saddened to learn that the scholar, whose steps I once followed, passed away. While archives of his website exist, I noticed two years ago that the main domains he initially controlled were released to the public and domain snatchers were able to grab them. I know that he probably wouldn't have cared that much since once one knows how to search links become meaningless, but this irked me for some time so I started hunting down the old domains. It took me a few years, but the two main domains are now redirecting to DQ's mirror again, which means that the links to the main domains in any of the mirrors will work again.

    It's a strange thing to do. Fixing a tiny little detail nobody will ever notice. For a person who passed away close to 10 years ago and who I never met or had any conversations with. But I felt that it was the right thing to do.
