I recently finished part of the sources list for "Viva Juarez!" but today on a double check, the site is gone!

This was easily the best English language site on the Net, and if it's been retired, woe is us!

If it's been moved, I can't seem to find it just now, so please, Gentlefolk, tell me it ain't so!!

Is this it?


Looks like the domain has been allowed to lapse, so no idea if they simply didn't pay to maintain or if it is gone.

Maybe go to the Web Archive and download anything that's there.

What might have happened to Gisby/Tim? I worry about the guy.

I'm with Chick on this.

I'm more concerned for Tim, in fact, than his site, useful as it has been to so many.

If someone can give him a shout and get a response, please get him to post here.

(And sorry for the idiot double post.)

It's gone, gone, gone. We had a financial reversal, so I could no longer justify paying $100 USD or so annually to maintain the site.

Oddly enough, while I was saving the site, I found some pictures that were wrong because I had reused a file name. I found and fixed them.

I actually have more material that I never got around to uploading. So sad, too bad.

Would you be willing to maintain it if it cost you nothing?

Why not just transfer everything onto a wordpress blog? Won't cost you a dime.

It's a bit dense for a wordpress blog, (very chart and picture heavy) and they like their formats, not mine.

So long as I still controlled it, maintaining it is easy. If it was free, not a problem.
