Saturday, May 30, 2015 Ray Girvan No comments
I'm sorry to announce that the updating of the Topsham site is likely to be discontinued in the near future. At this instant, I'm uncertain whether to take the site down or try to find someone to take custody of it for the town. My chief concern, for the general benefit of Topsham, is that the useful and long-running topsham.org.uk domain doesn't lapse and get into the hands of a 'splogger' (as topsham.org did) or domain speculator.
It is with great sadness that I have to report that Ray Girvan died on Tuesday 30 June 2015, three years after his diagnosis of cancer. It was his wish that this site should not become commercialised, but should be retained for community use. Ray asked if I might facilitate this. I have done so by taking over the domain name and will now consider how best to manage the site to reflect his wishes. In the meantime there will be no activity on the site.
