So, minitale is kind of intriguing me. I thought I might get in on the ground floor of this game and even set up a database or wiki in the style of the current minecraft wiki. Nothing to step on anyone's toes, but just something of benefit to the community for kicks. I turned down the idea of "minitalewiki" as too long. I settled on minitaledb.com, by the way. However, when I found wiki was taken, I did a whois.
It said the owner was Christopher Weaver.
Domain name: minitalewiki.com
Registrant Contact: Christopher Weaver

Wait, what? Christopher Weaver (wikipedia)? As in, fucking founded Bethesda "Christopher Weaver"?! As in, sued Notch, because they make Elder Scrolls and Notch called a game in development "Scrolls"? Going around registering notch game-related domains? Oh man! I found some dirt! This is so sweet!
But, the registration address said Indiana. I don't think he lives in Indiana? More googling around finds a meetup page for a "northern Indiana technology group", organized by a guy named Christopher Weaver, which suggests to me that he is far more likely the Weaver in question than the Bethesda founder.
However, I just want to say, this was almost going to me my claim to fame. I was about to become an internet flash in the pan for like five minutes for uncovering this. Damn you, Christopher Weaver! And . . . uh . . . other Christopher Weaver!
