Emulator Archive... domain expiring? Disappearing?

Postby RetroSynthAds » Sun Aug 05, 2012 6:54 pm

Hi everyone,

Looks like the Emulatorarchive.com Web site is down - domain expired on July 20, 2012.

I'm gonna try and find contact info for Rob Keeble (I've only found his emulatorarchive.com email), but if anyone knows him, could you please let him know. He may just not be aware of it.

And if he is aware and is dropping the site, it is a big loss. Would he consider passing on the site to someone else to take care of it?

Maybe I'm just panicking?

Heard back - he is indeed letting the domain go. No time to keep it maintained.

Shame, but at least Bluesynths.com are back again with a different domain,

http://greatsynthesizers.com/en/

Totally missed those guys and their amazing reviews with tons of original audio files.

Can you send me his contact address? I'm very willing to pay for the domain's registration and hosting to keep it online.

I've had an update on the situation this evening - it seems there are two interested parties in taking on this website in one form or another. The data itself has been backed up so it's not gone for good - thankfully.

Hooray, all good news. Referenced that site many many times in the past.

Don´t worry, another guy, Kenneth Abildgaard, is building up a new site. Rob Keeble has provided lots of material from his emulatorarchive to it: http://theemus.com/
