After many years of wondering who actually own matthewhobbs.com I’ve finally found out. Matt Hobbs. Now this is an assumption, as the pages are actually devoted to Matt and Nicky’s wedding (no mum, I didn’t get married and not tell you, it’s someone else) but at no point could I actually find mention of his surname. The conclusion is pretty obvious though isn’t it? It transpires that this wedding actually took place in Sandhurst, not that far away from where I used to live in Camberley (about 5 miles), so the guy obviously doesn’t live that far from my old family home.
So what I hear you say. Obviously ‘Hobbs’ is just very common in the south of England. Well no. Last time* I checked on Google for ‘Matthew Hobbs’ it returned 10 pages of results, and another 10 for the shorter ‘Matt Hobbs’. Most of these pages are actually in America. So the chances of the other Matthew Hobbs that bought the domain living that close was pretty slim. Guess it must be me from a parallel universe…
In the meantime I shall have to sit comfortably at matthewhobbs.net, which in itself is pretty darn strange as I haven’t paid Network Solutions for 4 months now. Go figure.
