Possibly somebody else might want to take it over but I'm not sure about that as - I'd hope pretty obviously - I wouldn't be prepared to just hand over 14ish years of work and research for nothing. Not too sure about what website stats mean but I can say that the site's averaged over 198,000 hits per month over the past 12 months.
I totally understand that some people will be upset about the disappearance of the site and I know who the majority of them are. So I'd really appreciate it if people could avoid contacting me to express their feelings either way - I don't really want a mass of e-mails making me feel bad for taking it offline.
Thanks for your support down the years !Jeff Trice
