anybody know what happened to

Just curious if anyone might know what happened to Jason Burr and his wood-workers.com hosting site? He was hosting my site as well as lot's of others and now it's all gone! Never any warning, nada, zip zilch. Everything dissappeared within the last couple of days and if the url is entered a page from go-daddy.com shows the domain parked "here" but no other info available
If you might have any info at all I would sure appreciate any help.
Thanks, Jon

Here's the info from a "whois" search on the domain. It appears he let the domain name expire. I think there's a grace period where he can recover it before anyone else is able to purchase it. If someone wants to contact him, maybe they should let him know. Could be he overlooked it.

I think thats the guy that offered/gave a bunch of people free web space about 2 years ago, then he wanted to take up a collection to buy some poor old retired guy a wood lathe, and a bunch of posters told him to F*** off. Tony D.

I can never understand people like that. Someone wants to do something nice and asks for donations. Sure, not everyone can donate. That's perfectly understandable. But, why get mean spirited? I've been away from that site for so long, I didn't hear about this, but if it were me, I'd just walk away.
Cheers, Eric

If I remember right, they man got the lathe and it was donated by someone anonymously. Jason did a good thing for many of us, perhaps he got tired of funding it?

There always seems to be a few ass holes who'll shit in the town well.
I had my woodworking site on Jason's server and was most appreciative of the FREE service he provided for me and a whole bunch of other woodworkers.
Never got any e-mail requesting donations but would have been glad to kick in for a good cause.
If he got fed up and closed his server down it's our loss. There was some good stuff there.
Am moving the site I had on wood-workers.com over to my comcast account. For those interested - the url is
http://home.comcast.net/~charliebcz /
Most of it has come acrossed ok though there are still missing images and a missing page or two - the new server doesn't like "&" and "!" in file names.
For woodworking newbies with a new or new to them table saw, the section on kickback might be worth checking out. If you understand what can cause kickback and what you can do to lower the odds you may actually use the info - and save yourself some grief.

Charlie, That's a good site. I will be reading it more when I get back into woodworking . Did you read the google link, I was in error, he did not ask for donations, per-se he asked if anyone had an old lathe laying around. I had suggested taking up the collection, seeing as how he had provided the web space. It was from memory that I recalled people were unwilling to help. Tony D.

Thanks, Am going to rework the navigation so The Shop doesn't take up so much space on the all text index. That was the earliest section built, when I was in my "show off all my toys" phase of woodworking. Now the focus is on documenting the process of making things with the hope that I, and perhaps others, will use the stuff that works and, more importantly the stuff that doesn't work - hence the OOPS! right at the top of the index. And if I can get a visitor to say "Hey, if even he can do that then I sure as hell can."...

I really should wait and get more info before I rant and rave. Engage Brain BEFORE Opening Big Mouth.
If Jason has dropped the web hosting service he so kindly provided FOR FREE, for whatever reason, I'm grateful for what he did.
Thanks Jason, where ever you are.

Your original webserver must have been broken and none conformant to the RFC on uniform resource identifiers (I'd hazard a guess and say it was a Microsoft product). Your new domain is hosted on a Netscape webserver running on Solaris.
An ampersand (&) is a reserved character ie. you shouldn't use it in filename to be served up as it indicates something else in a URI (URL), see:
http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2396.html
Bang (!) isn't reserved but unix machines don't like `funny characters' in filenames because unix shells interpret them to mean something else. For instance the bang character (!) is a logical not. You are best off just using [A-Z],[a-z],[0-9],[_-]
You'll also piss off unix users if you use funny characters. Should they wish to save one of your pages to disk, they'll have to rename them if they don't want to give their shell hiccups at a later date.

I think Jason was using Apache on his server for wood-workers.com Never had problems with "&" and "!" before.
Now I'm having problems with Adobe GoLive. Initially uploaded site now gives me an out of memory message when I try to open the "site" file. It has to be open to ftp to comcasts server.
So I imported that site into GoLive with a new site name. Uploaded changes to comcast and that worked - the first time. Now it looks, on my end, as if I successfuly upload new pages, image files etc, but they don't show up when I check my site and try getting to the new pages. All attempts to get to them result in page not found.
Damn I hate moving my wwing site.
Thanks for the info. Will file away and try to read up on things.

I don't know the problem here as I don't use that software.

I think it's because you are uploading pictures/files with reserved characters in their names which either the webserver refuses to serve up or they're not being saved to disk when you upload them. eg: in:
http://home.comcast.net/~charliebcz/RightToolCabinet2.html
there are pics like:
1A_Mallet&Squares.jpg 2A_CopingSaw&Hammers.jpg etc.
they are not appearing because they contain ampersands; rename them to something like:
1A_Mallet_n_Squares.jpg 2A_CopingSaw_n_Hammers.jpg
you'll also have to change your html to reflect the changed names.
Similarly there's a directory called:
M&T
which you'll have to rename also.
I think if you rename them, change your html and upload them you should be back in business.

Yeah. Looks like you've got a bit of work to do rather than having fun out in your shop making sawdust.

OK. Best of luck with the move!
BTW, I like your work....what I can see of it ;)
