Chrisgoffkites web-site down

Sun Nov 18, 2012 1:14 pm

Does anyone know what's happening with Chris Goff and his kite-making? I was lucky in getting my own SuperFly, but two of my club members have one on order (not paid for yet, as far as I'm aware) and Chris' web-site seems to have been down for well over a month now.

According to a website that tells you all about these things Chris' site's registration expired on the 8th of September. This ever-so-useful website also gives you contact details of the person to whom the URL is registered but I am reliably informed that this information is not Chris' and so contacting it might be unwelcome.

This whole episode has been a triumph, has it not.

The server isn't "down", in fact it is quite happily serving a "hey we don't actually have a page here" page. I understand that a better page is being developed to replace this one.

And weirdly.... so do I now :? I really did just cut an' paste. Well that certainly is a thing.

I'm sure we all have equal levels of certainty that this will along Real Soon Now :roll:

Scoop ! Scoop ! Scoop !

Tim Benson will be building the Superfly from now on, it'll be part of the Benson range with a dedicated page (shortly).

He'll be ready to take orders from next Tuesday, after lunch.

Great news I think. While he's at it, I hope they put their design brains together and come up with a UL version of this.

Chris did mention this to me some time ago as an option, so glad it's now a done deal!

Really obvious and welcome solution =D> .... I just wish there was an oversized version of this kite ..... say a 2.3 metre version if you are watching Mr Benson. This would probably help the wind range and precision. Fingers crossed and hope the standard one is listed soon ..... Wooo hooo :cool:

Its Thursday here already and no updates from Tim Benson's website. Is it confirmed already? :)

Don't take the 'Tuesday, after lunch' too literally.

It was a backwards reference to the DS Release Date.

It will happen when Tim is ready to make it happen.

As Frazer says, be patient .....
