The problem with websites is that, when a person dies or a company goes out-of-business, there is nobody home to shut the gas off.
Another hobby of mine is using old cameras. There was a company that had been processing an old standard of movie film since the mid-1970s, would up being the last lab to handle it, then branched out to handle other obsolete film processes.
Three years ago, they went out of business, but their website is still there, with its address and price list, no mention of their demise. Now people are sending out their exposed film for processing and they never get it back - developed or not.
If the Internet had been around when I was born, there would today still be a Studebaker website with 1966 Canadian-made cars and a dealer directory.
