Hi Pete!

Yep, that's true :-)

On the other hand we have to consider one thing: hosting doesn't 
necessarily mean maintaining. Actually, there should be somebody 
to care about the site. I can offer webspace and domain name, but 
I'm too busy to keep it updated.

In the meantime we should also find a temporary solution. Every day 
the calmira.org is down, we loose new "customers". If somebody has 
got a recent mirror of the site stored on his/her local machine, he/she 
should let us know, so that we can at least provide a mirror.

I agree with you as for the guestbook. At least a part of the 
screenshots should be preserved, though, as they give a very good 
impression of what Calmira is able to do - or better: what a user is 
able to do when he/she has got Calmira installed.

Does anybody have a figure of how big the site is/was? With and 
without guestbook/screenshots.

Cash is the only thing I can't offer....
