Good morning campers!
Grahams site Digitaldiy.com had a lot of modules and the such related to Swordfish. Did anyone save any of that work, or is it gone forever.

What's happened to the site? Have you tried contacting Graham? It's a real shame if it has all gone. Perhaps try "wayback machine" internet archive?

Yea I tried the wayback machine and it showed the most recent "snap shop" of the site in July 2014, but actually clicking links to swordfish code or modules only came up with dead links.
I guess Graham grew tired of keeping the site up, dunno
And yes, if it's all gone it will be a great loss

David and bitogav have asked me what I know – unfortunately nothing is the answer. I haven't talked to Graham in years but I'll try to reach him and find out the situation.

The site had almost zero participation for a long time. Articles were being read, but no commenters or feedback made, which is discouraging.

There is (was) a lot of good info on the site and it would be a shame to lose it.
