    My UK ISP has decided to close down personal web hosting later this year. So after some 17 years my Mamiya pages will not be available from http://www.btinternet.com/~g.a.patterson. I have had the material mirrored on another server for a while, at http://www.gapatterson.org , so this is mainly a courtesy notice so anyone who uses the information can adjust their links. Fair warning - the paths to specific pages are different, and may well change further once I get a chance to re-visit the material.

    The Mamiya TLRs continue to soldier on, so I will try to do the same with the collected information. Ironically, I think this may be my first originated thread :cool:

    The resource has been (and still is!) of immense value and I am glad it is still there! :smile:

    The link in the mirror/closedown text on the bti site does not redirect to www.gapatterson.org (I have to click the "real" link lower down) - but maybe that is how it should be?

    Thanks for the update Graham. I'd just like to add my words of appreciation to the others here. When I first got into Mamiya TLRs quite a number of years ago now your site was my "bible". I think I read it from beginning to end even before my first C330f had arrived in the mail. I found that I fell into absolutely none of the traps that I've read about with other new users of this system, which I put down to the comprehensive info from your site. In the years since it has continued to be a most valuable resource.

    Cheers from Australia,
    Carl

    Thanks, everyone.

    I have to do a lot of clean-up on the new location, and put up redirection pages for the rest of the lifetime of the old one. I wouldn't put it past the ISP to close off edit access but continue to serve pages for a while! No date as yet.

    The reason given is the lack of interest in personal web space. Presumably the social sites like Facebook have taken on that function.
