Good evening, Does anyone know what happened to Martin Green who had the FontStuff site for Access? I used his site quite a bit and it suddenly went dark. I fear the worst. Thanks, Scott

That's what I found too. I don't know exactly when it happened. I had not been their for quite a while, then just a couple of weeks ago it was gone. I have googled him and the site extensively and I get nothing about him or the status of the site.

Looks like it. But the original Martin Green website is maybe gone for good. And you never know when that is going to happen. That's why it's a good idea to make a copy of useful information, not just bookmark the link. For example, you know that webpage at The Access Web / mvps.org that tells you how to refer to controls from other forms? Well I have a copy of that saved on my computer in case it were to disappear. Of course, downloading anything and everything you might need from the web would be impossible. But you can make an attempt, at least.

You can of course make use of the Wayback Machine site which trawls all websites periodically and preserves them (hopefully) for eternity.
Of course, if that site went down as well.....but that's highly unlikely

This is true. And, indeed, Martin Green has been found at Wayback Machine (see the other thread). Still, a good copy on your computer can't hurt and is good insurance.

Someone who might know more about Martin Green's status could be Allen Browne. However Allen has also retired from Access stuff, but is still active in his spiritual blog. I certainly would hate to see his Access stuff site disappear.

Add to that list Rick Fisher's Find and Replace. His site is still up, but he no longer responds to requests to license the tool.

It might also be wise to take copies of the late Chip Pearson's wonderful website http://www.cpearson.com/excel/mainpage.aspx

Ken Getz's stuff is another treasure trove worth preserving. My apps use several of his standard routines modules, forms/reports configuration, control handling funcs, etc.
Perhaps one of us could create a repository website for all the legendary guru's to pledge their contributed works to it while they are still alive, or in their last will and testament. This way their life's works will live on forever.

There were several good, but older Access tutorials from DataPigTechnologies that were heavily referenced a few years back.
Older, but quite well done and very informative.

Good luck with your project!
