Aw crap! I'm just now getting the Save or Die crew interested in reviewing this setting.
Hey Mike, don't despair. There is still a lot of material on Pelinore in this thread
for the Save or Die crew to review. In particular, you might take a look at Phil Gyford's website
and Scot Hoover's Collected Pelinore

I thought about this, but the difficulty is more with time. I would feel bad about collecting fan donations and then not keeping the site updated.

BTW, I am unable to access the site now as well. Is anyone else having this problem?
It would seem that the good old Wayback Machine has saved some of the old content.

The pelinore.org site has been down for some time while I tried to restructure and update the content (I'm my own worse critic and was never happy with what I put in there). I just received a domain name renewal notice and I thought that it was a waste to keep paying for something that I rarely update, so I've let the webhost know that I don't want to renew the subscription. Again, the problem is time - if I had the time to at least update once a month then I would have kept it going.

...but I'm also glad that you are going to keep the content (or as much of it as possible).
Have you considered switching to a semi-regular blog, on a free blogging website (like Blogger or Wordpress)? Havard has some pretty cool content up on his Blackmoor Blog. I'm pretty sure you can add things like tags to articles, to make them searchable. So you could have a similar amount of information to your website, without the cost and without a need to try to build a large range of navigation pages to surround the content.
BTW: Congratulations on the new job. I hope you have a lot of fun doing it.
Yup. I've got all of the content here on my computer.
The blog idea is worth looking at, but in the short term I'm just as happy posting here on the Piazza
Thanks for the congrats. The job is
going to be fun - I'm going to be reunited with a lot of old colleagues from earlier employment. The only downside is that I will have to be in Hamburg 4 days a week doing it, but if I want to build offshore wind farms and change the world then I have to accept that I'm going to have to travel to do it.
