Website down?

Is it just me or is this splendid site down?

Looks like it - archive.org doesn't have very much of the site.

I think it was only one person running the website - hope they are ok.

It was fine a couple of weeks ago, maybe just maintenance to the site I guess we'll have to wait and see...

It's hosted by Google in the cloud so the website doesn't really have maintenance outages like server based websites.

It looks like it has gone - about the only reasons for the site to vanish is not paying Google or a request from the owner to close the website.

Anyone got an email address for the site owner?

Regards,

Charlie

IIRC he's Rob Martin aka Munkeezulu.

Is there another website for Landships? The one I have saved is working: Landships II it is not a Google-based website.

This Site:

https://web.archive.org/web/20200531095311/https://sites.google.com/site/landships/

Unfortunatly the Archive version doesn't seem to get beyond the menu's...

Was rather thinking that the owner may be doing some updates...

Elsewhere on the Forum, Gwyn refers to Munkeezulu as "my friend." Assuming he wasn't speaking purely figuratively, perhaps Gwyn can throw some light on it.

I am afraid I haven't been in touch with Rob Martin for some considerable time. There was a time when we worked together on the site (I was credited on it). I don't know why it is down but I do know that Rob's attention has been elsewhere for some little while.

Tony, they are talking about the Landships Google sites website, which was separate from this forum and associated website.

 Oh, that's terrible news. It's a fantastic resource. Is there any way of contacting Rob? If it's a cost problem, we might be able to help.
