The Trials of Oregon Cabbies on the Internet

I got an email from CabbieX, a driver down in Eugene, and writer of the wonderful Through A Windshield, Darkly. His Blogger site's been hijacked, and re-directs to a porn site. I'm thus taking down the link until he gets things straightened out, which hopefully won't be in too long. I'd encourage other people who may have it linked to do the same.

(EDIT: This had been a reference to a broken Night Cabbie link, but the link is now fixed. Thanks, Wil!)

In related news, I added a link to the wonderful This Fare City about a week ago. Michelle's also a cab driver in Portland, and is being bothered by a cliched hack down in San Francisco who claims trademark on an old and not particularly unique pun. I'd strongly encourage you to check out her site - female cab drivers, especially at night, have to deal with just about all of the same issues I do, plus some ones I thankfully don't.

I'm leaving comment moderation on for a little while longer, as I'm a little weary after the mini-drama of a week ago. It will hopefully not last much longer, and I'll likely be back with a more proper post later tonight/early tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the info about Windshield Darkly; I noticed this yesterday. Could you let us know if/when he's back online?

Yours is one of my favorite cab blogs. Thanks for putting so much effort and eloquence into your work.

Are you better now? Or do you still have that illness from a few posts ago?

Its a shame that Eugene Cabbie is having a hijack problem on his site. Hope he gets back soon. As of Friday 12 Jan 07 at 2100 hrs he is still having the problem. Porno has taken over. All you bloggers keep up the good works. Some good reading from you all.
