Hi, does anyone know what happened to historyofwallasey.co.uk? Seems the hosting expired 12th of March this year and hasn't been renewed. There's no obvious way to ask the owner if they need help as the only contact email is hosted at the domain. Nominet reveals nothing as the owner enabled privacy via their host QIQ.host - seems a shame as a lot of work went into the site. It's still kind of accessible via a snapshot on web.archive.org taken late last year.

I'm concerned about Paul, its proving very hard to track him down, I thought I had a means of contacting him but that has fallen through. Let's hope he his ok.

Dunno, I contacted someone who I was 100% convinced was him but he outright denies it, perhaps he just wants to walk away due to circumstances or whatever, some of these things start off as an interesting project but gradually become a burden.

I'm not looking into it any further.

The link was only a snapshot, I think Paul has released a number of books all containing his site info.and closed his site I choose not to buy because of what he did in the past He has changed his name from Paul Layland then Paul Wirral and now Davies

Most of the links didn't work last week. It must have been a work in progress because the majority of the site is back up and running now.
