Shit. It seems that blindwino.com has been domain grabbed. I hope this doesn't mean Mark Driver has intentionally let the domain lapse with no plans to keep writing. But, if that isn't the case it still means some bastard has nicked his domain.
Either way there's no Blind Wino/Driver Down to be had; and so far I haven't seen him pop back up anywhere.
I really enjoy Mark Driver's writings, not least his self-published book Just Another Empire. But I'd been reading his website for years. Would hate to see that end.
He has an amazing ability to combine vitriol, clarity, comment and an apparent wealth of life experience. The posts that result (bless the wayback machine!) are quite something to read.
So anyway, if anyone finds Mark Driver hanging around in some corner of the net; please let me know.
Update: Although nobody seems to know where Mark Driver has got to, head on over to Blindwino.com Memories for an archive of his writings.
My old site? Mmm, come with me as we travel through the excretory system of late-capitalism’s terminal decline! I lost my URL to Network Solutions, who are a smoking carload of hooting retards. Somehow they managed to find an email account from 15 years ago as my primary contact. Then, though I tracked them down before the URL expired, they wouldn’t let me renew without paying $150 extra. Fuck ‘em. Blindwino was bought by some Limey Sisterfister and is being used as a tool to get links on Google. He wanted $1500 for my site. Yay! Please feel free to email him with time-wasting offers and recipes for hymen pirogi.
I look forward to seeing how this latest incarnation unfolds.
