An On-Line Journal
by Paul Buceta

2006 01 17 - Morbid Thoughts

I've been a bit negligent in updating my site lately because I had a death in the family.

I've often wondered what will happen to my site when I'm gone?
I mean will it just disappear once my annual domain renewal expires?

The thought of spending the next few decades working on my site for it to just vanish seems almost tragic to me.

I have to find a way to make this site live on, well past my lifetime. We all want to be remembered. We all hope that generations of our descendants will remember and speak of our accomplishments. Whereas Buceta descendents will probably hide in shame from this site.

Will I be remembered as the crazy Buceta that put his whole life on display. Will I be the shame of the family?

There is always the option of leaving some money behind with a trustee to ensure it's continued existence but to what end?
Will this be of interest to anyone say 10 years after my last journal?

Perhaps a family member will take it over and continue my lunacy.

I think I'm going to write an ongoing final entry to be posted on my behalf when the time comes.

I'm trying to find a way to twist this into something comical but have opted give it the respect it deserves.
