Update (August 2nd) We have asked for the site to be moved at 4pm today (Wednesday). It’s possible that the site may appear to be offline for some readers while the new location of the site propagates across the internet. If that happens rest assured that the interruption will be temporary, and https://bigdave44.com will soon be back online.
Original Post: Big Dave’s family, in particular his sister Carol, have very generously made it possible for caretakers crypticsue, Gazza, Mr K, and Prolixic to keep BD’s site operating so that the community he created will live on and so that current and future cryptic crossword solvers can benefit from the wonderful resource he created.
We need to set up a new hosting agreement for the site because the arrangements that BD had in place are expiring. The changeover should happen around 6pm BST today (Wednesday July 26th). The hosting service tell us that the move should be seamless, but it is possible that the site might go offline temporarily.
When the site is running smoothly again, we will try to restore the features, such as email notifications of new content, that were lost when subscriptions to the relevant services expired.
