Just today i checked out, which was offline for some reason. Now i know it is hosted at Dreamhost, so it can be quite slow. Out of curiosity i checked, which used to be the old domain when Anomie & Bonhomie was released. For a couple of years there was a redirect and some domainfarmer had hijacked it. However, now there was just the simple message Directory Listing Denied, which means the site is up and running, but there is no index file to display.

This made me curious so i did a short whois check on the domain. The following came up:

Domain name:

G Gartside

Registrant type:
UK Individual

Registrant’s address:
The registrant is a non-trading individual who has opted to have their
address omitted from the WHOIS service.

Registrant’s agent:
Fasthosts Internet Ltd [Tag = FASTHOSTS]

Relevant dates:
Registered on: 03-May-2007
Renewal date: 03-May-2009
Last updated: 04-May-2007

Registration status:
Registration request being processed.

Name servers:

WHOIS lookup made at 19:47:22 30-May-2007

Quite clever to have his address not shown in the query – didn’t actually know this was possible, should look into that myself to be honest. The registration date of May 3 is still very recent, and it does say the request is still being processed.

Anyways… this might point to the fact a website will be live one time in the future! Over the past year Green repeatedly mentioned in interviews a website was in the making, but that he wasn’t happy with it yet. On the other hand… it could mean no such thing at all … Whatever the case, i couldn’t resist posting about it, felt like a real detective out there snooping around. And i do hope there will be a proper Scritti website soon. Even though i feel we at bibbly-o-tek are a pretty good alternative in the meantime!
