His site has been down for a while. Does anybody know his status?

Should we (as a forum) try to reconstruct his site/data?

I sent an e-mail to the address list on the website (different domain).

At least snagging the latest versions of all the files that are available on the wayback machine would be a start. James H has much of the data already.

Will had factors ranging well beyond Primenet range... Should we also consider them?

If someone wants to step up and take the reins, we can provide a ftp login and web space.

He is alive and okay. The URL for his website changed. I changed the entry in the MersenneWiki.

http://manana.garlic.com/~wedgingt/mersenne.html

Note the addition of a subdomain.

Thanks a lot for the link.
And tell Will he missed 511 in "definitions" chapter (in the "list of the smallest composite mersenne")
(edit: we here also always subscribed to the idea of defining "mersenne numbers" for all exponents, not only for prime exponents, for many reasons)
