Bill Holt updated his status.
February 27 ·
"Religion - The Church of Que será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que será, será…
Hoping to offend no one, I'll share a bit of personal information that's on a topic I rarely visit: Religion.
Mine is simple: I don't know.
If any of the other forms are actual, I'm screwed, if and only if, their form and function are not as I'd care to contribute.
If any are more like an "I don't know" then maybe I'll be ok.
Assuming that some tiny part of this little system is correct, something else is required: Some rules.
My rules, at least my targets:
To the best of your ability;
Do not Lie,
Do not cheat,
Do not steal,
Do not hurt people, and
--- this is the toughest one ---
Mind your own business!..."
------------This was excerpted from Bill's Facebook page. Bill died May 30. Link to obit elsewhere.-----------

Very sad to hear. That would be about the time I had my last communications with him. He was fading in and out of coherence; was anxious for me to take over management of this site, but was never quite coherent enough to send me his passcodes.

We're paid up through next March. After that, unless some solution presents itself, this site goes down.

I hope there's a way to migrate stuff.

I'll look again. There is a way to archive a site, maybe it, or something else, could be used for migration.

There are two issues:

1. Securing the debunkers.org name after Bill's registration of it expires.

2. Moving the archives over.

I don't know how to accomplish either. Suggestions solicited.

The site's Registrar (site hosting) is Godaddy. This is how to secure a domain name with them after the owner's death: Link. You'll need to talk to his next-of-kin about this as that person is the only one able to do it.

From the obit, "Bill is survived by his significant other, Pam Elzy; his “baby girl”, Carrie Elzy; his mother, Julia Holt; his brothers, Paul D. Holt (Marina) and Robert L. Holt; and his niece, Arianne Austin (Jason); nephew, Matthew Holt; great nephew, Emerson Austin; and his loving pets, Gus and Molly."
-----------From Facebook, I believe that Pam Elzy is a nurse in Louisville, KY.----------------
Edit; Pam Elzy, Carrie Elzy, Paul D Holt and Robert Lee Holt are all listed as friends on the Facebook page - search Bill Holt Louisville.
