    This is merely to satisfy my curiosity and nothing more, but why does the home page end in .com but when you're at the forums it's .net? (/forums)

    This goes back to when Bolttalk.com and Talkbolts.com were 2 separate sites. Bolttalk had a blog and forum, and Talkbolts had a forum. We merged and decided to use vBullettin which was at talkbolts over PHBB for the message boards. Eric registered bolttalk.net moved the forums there and the blog and podcast remained at bolttalk.com. This was done to have some redundancy in case on hosting provider went down.

    Eventually, Eric moved Bolttalk.com to the same server as the bolttalk.net, and at some point after an upcoming site redesign, we will make it so that both .net and .com resolve to the same sites no matter what you use.
