Site has been down for a while and I had thought I had saved the data on distributor applications/specs and apparently didnt. Wonder if its on here somewhere or if someone has it that can sent via email? Thanks

This has happened before and the site had it's "license" renewed eventually. In the mean time this is a better resource in terms of accuracy.

The oldvolkshome site owner is on here frequently and just needs to be notified that its been taken down. I just can't remember who it is.

I can't speak for Glenn but he probably copied it for his own reference or was worried about it disappearing again since I know it's gone dead a few times, as mentioned above.

I just downloaded the entire page from the link above, for myself. Smile

I'm a little late here, but this is the last snapshot available at the Wayback Machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20171204180233/http://oldvolkshome.com/

I may make a backup for myself, just in case. Wink
