  • diecastfire.co.uk?

    Does anyone know how to get in touch with David Metson who runs diecastfire.co.uk?

    This is pretty random, but a couple years ago, I set his site up on my hosting account because he was having some issues with his host. It was supposed to be a temporary thing, and I honestly forgot that his site lived on my servers. I'm about to change hosts, and if I do, his site is going to die, so I'm trying to get in touch with him.

    I sent a message to Dave and let him know.

      Hello, it is me. It is OK if it dies. I will just cancel the domain name. Thanks for hosting all this time.

        Hi Dave! Sorry to see that your site is already down. Being an amateur at website building, I have no idea how to host another site, but let me know if you want any info published on PublicSafetyDiecast... you are welcome to have your own pages.

          Wouldn't you know I just tried to go to that site to get some info for a digital database I am trying to make. Please let us know if you ever get it going on another domain!

                I have just had a look at my files and it should be possible to burn to a CD or DVD the whole of the site. It should work as per the original webpage but it is a bit messy. Shipping would have to be from the UK

                  Hey everyone! Life got crazy and I haven’t visited here in a bit. I still have all the files as well. It does feel like a shame to let the site die. If Dave is cool with it, I can work with Jim to archive the content on the PublicSafetyDiecast.com domain.

                      I would have NO idea how to do this. I use a very old/outdated Microsoft FrontPage program on an old version of Windows on an old laptop and publish via FTP (also outdated) to VodaHost servers. The only way I would know how to help save some of Dave's pics is to create a link on my site's homepage, add pages for his stuff, and upload his pics.

                        Once I have some time, I'll take a look at it and see which links in the HTML are hard-coded for the old domain and update them to be relative links so they work no matter where you put them on your site. I could upload everything via FTP to your site, or post the files in a zip folder for you to download to your local computer and then upload via your normal FTP program. I'll shoot you a PM once I have some time to look in to it.
