Hello,
Did William take down his site? It had a lot of wonderful patterns on it but when I went to access it there was nothing there. If he simply changed the address would someone please let me know what the new addy is? Thank you.
All the best,

Tim

Tim, it very unfortunately has been lost.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Damn...he had a wonderful site and all that work he put into it, what a shame. William, I am truly sorry that happened.
All the best,

I also were wondering what happened to the site, it had some great content. It’s a pity Bill can’t find a low cost or free web hosting site if money is the issue

Money is not the issue. Some internet troll bought the domain name out from under William, and was holding the website hostage for a huge sum of money (thousands). Unfortunately, William lost control of his own website and the contents. A heart breaking loss, which took the wind out of William's sails...

Thanks, Ray, for the insight. A real loss, and a reminder of the kind of folks one finds lurking around many places these days. Wm's site held a lot of information for us all.

I didn't know this. Such an awful thing to happen. You find jerks everywhere and the infernet is such a rich playground for them. I almost can't imagine my feelings if something like that happened to me. What a blow!!
