Went to ProgArchives this morning and get this:

progarchives.com
has expired and is parked free, courtesy of GoDaddy.com.

This is alarming because it means either M@X has fallen asleep at the wheel and not tending to the basics any longer (or has he ever been?)

OR

He has full intent to let these sites go by the wayside.

Either way, i would advise everyone here to back up any info that is on MMA and plan for the possibility of all his sites going down.

I really hope this was just a simple oversight and PA will be saved from this mishap but i have had friends let their websites expire accidentally only to find someone else snatched it up and wanted to extort gazillions of dollars and if the site is returned it very well could have lost tons of data.

It seems to be back, Mike. Hopefully it was a timing thing with Max.

PA's domain was renewed today, according to the site's WHOIS data. It's valid until 2027.

That was strange to see that page this morning. Never encountered that before. I guess M@X dodged that fiasco.

Maybe he didn't pay the bill on time. 

PA looks safe for another five years at least.
