Blackie has passed away. RIP

Recommended Posts

I offered him 60,000 baht for rugbyunion.com. I put the *cash* on the table, right in front of him, at his soi 26 place. It was a serious offer.

 

He then launched into a tirade about me being a cheap ass and I can go and f$%^ myself and how dare I insult him like that with such a ridiculous offer. A few minutes later we were off to Cowboy and it was all forgotten!

 

A few months later the domain name had lapsed...

Hi,

 

Very nice write up, and it brought back many memories - you have a better memory than mine though for remembering all of that :).

 

One small comment on it though. The forum at Nanaplaza.com isn't defunct, it moved. To here.

 

BTW, here is a link to most of his posts he made on NP.com:

Dig around a bit and I am sure you can find many posts related to the stories Stickman mentioned (mostly about getting mobiles stolen :) )

 

Sanuk!

I wrote a few words about Blackie in my column this week, ok, not a few, abut about 4,500. I tried to keep it accurate so it is hardly a eulogy, full of positives. Still, I hope it captures the flavour of the man whose company many of us enjoyed.

Never met Blackie, or most of the people on this Board, or you. And let me preface the rest by saying I hate cookie-cutter death tributes that paint people out (usually erroneously) as heroes or saints.

 

That said - thank you for the well written honest write up, warts and all. Made me appreciate the subject, and have a sense of loss.

 

I'm sure he would be grateful also, you're a good friend.

 

Ps - Have you seen rocknroll.com? It looks like the current owner is also sitting on it hoping for a profit. The circle will not be broken. :)

Hi,

 

"I just added a link to the end of the article saying that the NanaPlaza.com can now be found here."

 

Thanks.

 

"Ps - Have you seen rocknroll.com? It looks like the current owner is also sitting on it hoping for a profit. The circle will not be broken."

 

Looked it up the other day after reading about Blackie's demise and noticed the same. It's a damn good domain name though. Wonder what the current asking price is? (No, I'm not interested in buying it :) )

 

Sanuk!
