Arc FAQ and windrange calculator might be gone soon

http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/mx5alan/arcs/ARCsetup_FAQ.htm?sho...

When I visit these two sites I an greeted with this page

https://www.talktalk.co.uk/notices/web-space-closing.html?ac...

I'm worried that these two pages will soon disappear and that I won't be able to access the information. I am thinking of making my own copy for personal use, but then others won't have the information. Looking through the directories that last updates we're almost 10 years ago, so who even knows if the original author is still around or even knows that the site going down. Does anyone here know who wrote the pages?

It would really be sad to have these great resources taken from the web. I remember 7 years ago how amazingly helpful these were when I first got my venom. If they go down, it would just be another nail in the coffin for arcs.

I'll repost this on arcusers, maybe someone there knows something more. It's been seriously dead over there as well though. Sad to see the lack of interest, arcs are awesome.

No! I'm too late!
I saved the page now with some of the pictures missing. I also saved the source code of the windrange calculator. It looks like it really is going down. :(

Nuts, I missed the pics as well. I thought it was just my iPad this morning.

The Way Back Machine internet archives has it complete with images. Nothing is ever fully gone off the interwebs. ;) But better hurry before it's gone from there too. :P

In some cases, I think its just a matter of broken links.... even on the WBM copies the pics for the 09 Navigator bars are missing.

I believe August 8th is the date I remember reading as to when they will be turning off the lights.

I spent some time last night trying to track down MX5Alan who may or may not be Alan Henderson a Mazda club racing enthusiast. There's no contact information on any of the Arc pages on the Talk-Talk website.

In the best of all possible worlds all the files would just get ported to a Google Sites account set up for solely that purpose.

Burying on Alans pages in another page that apparently he had inquired about hosting, only to find out the developer had passed away the shortly before his inquiry. Circle of life, I suppose.

ATB,
Sam
