I'm guessing that you're not going to get any kind of useful answer to that question here.

You might think about trying another site that actually has more connection to the Scotsman than, "hey, this site's on the same internet as scotsmanality.com."

The domain expired, looks like.

 Record expires on 23-Feb-2005.

Maybe he forgot to renew it? Doesn't look like he's been by here since last August.

EDIT: http://scotsman.phpwebhosting.com/ still works - well, it still returns his custom 404 if you put in a link that doesn't exist. The index page returns "permission denied," though.

From what I've heard, from people that have been in contact with Scots, is that he chose not to renew his domain, and/or pay the webhosting bill. He's moved onto things more important than eating semen covered burritos. If you miss the gang of idiots on the Scotsmanality message boards, there are two sites you can check out. www.insertlabel.net and www.universallyranked.com . I like insertlabel better, but I'm biased in that regard.

Well, they both are (or rather, were) wrestling-related web sites ... and Scotsman's posted here in the past (although, like CRZ said, not recently).

So the archives are gone? Bummer.

Long story short, around August of last year I pretty much burnt out. I just couldn't be bothered writing anymore, and took time off. Around the same time I got into poker, and ended up putting all my spare time into that, educating myself about the game bla bla bla. I ended up taking time off from work to see if I could possibly play poker for a living and it worked out, so have now taken a year off from my job to pursue that career path.

In December I attempted to bring the site back with a WCW Thunder review, but it just wasn't working out. I mean, I had the game and sat down numerous nights to do a review...but just didn't have the passion, and put it off and put it off.

In January I re-opened the site so that my archives would always be there. Also another member of the site(cubsfan328) took control of the forums.

Then in February a funny little thing happened; the domain name came up for renewal. At the very last day I paid for the domain, however something fucked up and it didn't go through. They ended up trying to rob me dry, wanting about $500 to re-instate the domain for ten years, refusing to let me do it for less than that. Complete mess, and I just couldn't be bothered with it anymore.

So that's pretty much the fascinating(cough) end of Scotsmanality. Unfortunately the archives are not around anymore, although I do have the database backed up. If anyone ever wants an article sent to them just drop me an e-mail at g69 @ kingston dot net and I'll be sure to send it to them.

I still have my old webspace, and have purchased another domain. The website(http://www.ultimatepokerbankroll.com) will pretty much guide new online poker players into the world of online poker and how to build a 1k bankroll in a month, a guide I wish I'd had when I started.

Thanks to everyone who visited over the years; twas a lot of fun. And a little tidbit for y'all; CRZ was originally going to be one of the writers at Scotsmanality during HELL WEEK TWO, but scheduling issues forced us to cancel

It's true! It ended up just too close to the big move to Minnesota and we never got our emails close enough together for me to churn out some product. As a result, the world will remain forever covered by sadness without a SUPER CRZ REVIEW! of Azteca America's "Mente y Movimiento" - no, REALLY, that was my brilliant idea.

Hell, I even had a Scotsmanality-style mugshot ready for the site, too! It MIGHT have looked something like THIS:

Heeeeeey let's talk about MEEEEEE some more in Scotsman's thread! AWESOME.

Scotsman has buttered me up by letting me know that since this is still the #1 Google for Scotsmanality, it's the best place to drop a free ad for his next gold mine:

http://www.scotsmanalitydeux.com/

Everyone click and then we get a piece of the action! (nothing from nothing leaves nothing)
