OK, I just talked to Chris and he is being held hostage by GoDaddy, they are going to charge a re-in-statement fee of $250 for the "OldSchool DAW" forum.  If this site dis-appears then many musicians will suffer.  It is the only site that covered all the gaps that we do not cover here, such AS...

Extensive DOS downloads for ancients DAWs
Extensive Windows 3.1, "95, '98 downloads for ancients DAWs
Roland resources no longer available
Tons of rare driver downloads
Sampler history info

and much, more.

I am donating $20 right now to get the ball rolling, regardless of what you think of Chris, or even me, personally, that does NOT matter; please help if you can, I am already getting PMs from people who need these resources and we need sites like this to stay around in 2022

they told me i have untill the 13th of december to pay this or else they nuke all the data
they arent even giving me a backup im really pissed off at godaddy i knew they were crooked a long time ago i should have moved servers last year like i had planned but here we are now with my data being held ransom i have limited income to be able to shoot at this i have paid for the hosting since 2014 30$ canadian every month never missed a payment i was in the hospitol when the payment failed with a twisted ankle this is just so wrong on so many levels way to reward a 9 year long customer .. shameful policies from godaddy - clearly a desperate company out to screw over its own customer base - they harassed me many times to upgrade when i did not have any need to, totally shameful business practices from godaddy

http://paypal.me/oldschooldaw

thank you to any of you who can help me sort this problem
i intend on keeping the site up and moving to a more reputable hosting company for the future
its gonna take a few days work to make that a reality.. lets just hope godaddy doesnt fuck up the restore even after its paid for...
all of this because one of my credit cards expired on my paypal account and the billing didnt go thru im shocked that godaddy would
treat me this way after being a customer for close to ten years.... shameful, needless to say its highly reccommended to not trust them with your hosting

dealing with Godaddy has been an absolute nightmare.. apparently theyve outsourced their entire staff to india or something... and i got little to no reassurrance that my data was even safe untill 2 sec ago when i saw the site coming up.. with nov.4th date as the most recent date... hopefully they finnish the restore 100% and i can make a backup + switch hosts and forget about this nightmare

but im comforted to see that they recovered the database.. the html files arent 100% in place yet as the css isnt being applied properly rn but im hopefull i can piece shit back together if they fail at putting the files back, the database was the most important part obv
