    As you probably know the owner died some time ago. The moderators were running it, but apparently the family estate decided to pull the plug on the hosting and the site went offline. The mods have been trying to get the owner's family to transfer ownership to one of them for a while. They are still working on it, but my sense is they aren't getting any traction.

    From what I'm hearing, they're actually making good progress. The site should be back up & running any time now - hopefully within a few days.

    I was sorry to see it go dark, even if I don't spend a lot of time there. I didn't join the MeWe group, so I appreciate the update! Thank you Kilowatt3!

    Hopefully this coming week it will be back up. The person who acted as Angel and purchased the domain has spent many, many hours dealing with hosting companies, vBulletin, etc. Monday being a holiday will further delay progress, but the Angel person will pursue.
