    Hallo Daryl,

    I've also lost some family members to cancer and my wife's dad
    has also been diagnosed with cancer and it's unsure how much
    time he has left...

    I doubt any family has escaped that scourge.

    Oh yes... :-(

    I don't want to sound unsympathetic, but is there a chance that
    this archive and the keygens he collected, can be saved somehow
    and passed to someone else from the scene or to archive.org or
    sth. like that?

    I have many of the files that were on his site

    I guess many of the files can be found either elsewhere or via
    archive.org.

    but I don't have the registration key generators.

    That's the real problem here.

    But, I wouldn't have had the funds to purchase them.

    And that's the question: Who has/owns them now and is it possible to
    forward them or buy them from someone? And what would be the price?
    Could this price be paid by someone who continues to sell
    registrations or could it be some kind of "crowdfunding"?

    Regards,
    Anna

    Anna,

    The files are fine, but without the registration key generators, the
    programs are worthless.

    And that's the question: Who has/owns them now and is it possible to forward them or buy them from someone? And what would be the price?

    I have no idea. Doug had all of them, and with the site now gone, I
    haven't seen any information on it...and I'd be very surprised if they
    were still available.

    Maybe someone from his country (USA?) could reach out to his family
    and ask if they know something about this topic?
    Or did anyone here in FidoNet know him and/or his family?

    Anna
