Welcome back to WIL WHEATON dot NET

After six long years, I can finally say:

Massive thanks to Mysterious Kevin for all his help making my return home easy and painless. I couldn’t have done this on my own.

Please note that the first time you comment (whether it’s with a WordPress account, or your Twitter, Facebook, or Google login), you’ll get tossed into moderation while it waits for me to ensure you’re not a robot or a dick. This should only happen once.

  1. Yay! Glad WWdN is back!

    I just watched the Leverage “The Last Dam Job”, I am so hooked on this show and it’s your fault! I only started watching because you were on it. It’s a lot of fun, and I’ve fallen in love with the whole cast.

  2. I’m just seeing if I can post with my Twitter account.

    I’m going to bed now, and since I’ll have to approve comments, don’t worry if you don’t see yours for 12 hours or so.

    Thanks for coming here, reading and commenting. I hope you’ll dig through the archives, because there’s some stuff there I’m really proud of.

  3. I’m only commenting because i can login from billions of sites without creating a login :D:D
    btw, surely we are up to dot NET 3.0 ? 2.0 has had many revisions but no major release candidates … its slower to update than a Debian distro!

    1. I considered making this 3.0, but Exile was really just one version between 1.5 and 2.0, and since this is the first major revision to WWdN in six years, one number seemed more appropriate.

      Hence, 2.0.

  4. Boo-yah!

    I have to admit, I totally copied the layout of wilwheaton.net back in the day to create craigsteffen.net. wwnd has now evolved twice since then, and craigsteffen.net three times, but I’m immensely please to be able to post here (and from my twitter account, even).

    Thank you, thank you wil for not making your layout the type that makes you click on every frakking entry to see it in its entirety. I hate that design choice–I like being able to read all the entries all together.

    Welcome back, sir. See you on the internets.

  5. Congratulations on the triumphant return to WWdN!!! I myself might be returning to my original url vortext.net at some point, I haven’t decided yet and I don’t own the URL right now, some redirect webhosting site has a page there. If you want to see my effed upness you can look it up in the Wayback Archive.
    My current blog is http://vortexian.wordpress.com
    Its always nice to see a good WordPress layout. If I don’t get my domain back I’m going to pay the 100$ a year for deluxe webhosting.

  6. Congrats on the successful move. It’s like exile was your estranged teenage years and you have now come back, after realizing that your parents weren’t idiots, to where you belong.

  7. Welcome back to your old/new home! I have been following you from site to site since almost the beginning and have greatly enjoyed the journey. Keep on writing!

  8. Now that it is letting me log in (sorta) and comment: Welcome back, Wil! Amusingly, just about a week or two ago I removed WWdN from my bookmarks, seeing as you had been in Exile for so long. I figured you weren’t gonna come back. And then, bam! :D

  9. Wil, I started reading WWDN waaaaaay back in September, 2002, when I was surfing the net at SDSU one day before class. (Yes, that’s precisely 10 years ago.) I googled your name after wondering what you were up to, found WWDN, and was immediately hooked. It was amazing to be part of your Posse, and I loved your message boards (I still miss them!).

    Welcome back!

  10. Welcome back, Wil. Good to see you @home again. I especially like being able to go back through your blogs, all the way to June 19, 2003. Raising a toast in your honor, in celebration (it’s Ayinger Brau-Weisse).
