    Default Darrel Taylor - Archived pages of DT Interrupts

    First of all, I am sad as all of you regarding his passing. He was such a wealth of tips, software, etc.

    My question is:
    Since his website has been taken down, is the information available in an archive somewhere? I referred to it a lot in the past, and it was always very helpful.

    Hi Ken

    Try this :-

    http://web.archive.org/web/200905090....pbpgroup.com/

    Good for other deleted sites too. As long as you know the URL.

    It wouldn't hurt if all of this wealth of information were posted somewhere here in the forum. I understand that most of it is already posted in different threads in the forum. But, it would be good to have it all in just one place.

    Hard to believe that ME haven't taken this on in a more formal way. This is an absolute treasure trove and should not be lost to future adopters or indeed the PIC basic community as a whole.

    Anyone know if Darrel's Custom Character Generator program is available somewhere?

    A suggestion would be to create a sub folder under Wiki to keep all the stuff that was in Darrel's website. It would be a good point of reference for all of us. It will also serve the purpose of honoring Darrel's memory. Ideas, comments?

    Here is another question:

    Anyone have a working link to find DT_Analog.PBP ?

    Been searching, but no luck - - lots of links that no longer work

    This sux bigtime
    How did anyone find out? Did someone know him personally?
    I somehow pictured him in my mind in his 40’s or so.

    I wondered where he had gone, but assumed he just moved on as some others have.
    There is a thread here I will never forget, and I wish he’d seen the outcome.

    Hi,

    Wanting to have a look to Darrel's repository ...I was pretty surprised to see my browser CHROME locked the access to support.melabs.com telling it is a " dangerous pirated site ( phishing ,etc, etc ...) " ( sic! )

    and, if I'm right, it is not the first time it happens ...

    Has anyone any info about that ???

    No info except that I haven't been able to reach their forum for two days. Antivirus software goes haywire when I try.
    And no, it's not the first time.

    Kaspersky also gives me an UNSAFE SITE warning.

    I just click on DETAILS and then proceed to the site.

    Me too with Mozilla and ESET Antivirus.

    But I am not sure if it is the antivirus that gives me the warning.

    On IE there is no warning at all!

    IE is THE browser to use if you're looking for a Keygen or any pirated software ...
