Regarding the recent messages reporting not being able to get through to
the official Hawkwind WWW site, www.hawkwind.com, I just did a
dig/nslookup on the hostname and found that it no longer exists; even
its primary nameservers don't know it!

Doing a "whois hawkwind.com" yields the following:

   Domain servers in listed order:


The InterNIC Registration Services Host contains ONLY Internet Information
(Networks, ASN's, Domains, and POC's).
Please use the whois server at nic.ddn.mil for MILNET Information.

Note that the billing contact is none other than our old friend Doug
Smith himself!  Maybe Doug doesn't realise that InterNIC require
$100/year to maintain a domain registration?  (Or, more likely, maybe
the Hawks are phasing out the stateside WWW presence in favour of their
own home-grown effort?)

Oh, btw, at least now the R.O.D.S. E-mailbomber has a target address... ;-)
