Bob Hall's website
« on: September 27, 2011, 06:10:07 PM »
Hi all.

Does anyone have a link to Bob Hall's paperweights website?

I hope he's okay.   The web address I've using for years no longer works  -  http://www.bobhallpaperweights.co.uk/

All I get is "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"


Thanks

Keith

Looks like this is the web site for where the site is hosted and the domain registered so I'd get in touch with him, http://www.martinporcheron.com/home

Bob's site can hosted for posterity by the Glass-Study.org if there is a problem, ideally with URL. Bob could still manage it and own the rights etc. ... just no fees to be paid.

Same applies to any other glass web-site that the owner is unable to maintain.

Sadly, Bob Hall has suffered serious illness in the past few years, as well as family bereavement. It is likely that his paperweights website is simply no longer operative.

Hopefully someone can reach him to let him know about the possibility of preservation.
