if you look in to the couple dozen deepest Pentax resource sites in almost every case you'll find an active PDML User from the 90's behind it. It's as if there was an intentional agreement to build historical archives by a couple dozen PDML members (same holds for adaptall-2.org and Monoghan's Cult Classics and Fred Miranda and Mflenses and manualfocusforum and m42.com (defunct) - well, all the major sites and Forums).

I have always had the thought that were it not for PDML Pentax might not even exist today.

Sadly, over a couple decades we all age a couple decades. Among those dozen or two PDML stalwarts, those who were in their sixties a couple decades ago are unable to continue now.

I once was an active member of the PDML (which I still belong to), as well.

As for old web sites, I host the the archives of the old Pentax FAQ and the old Pentax Lens Gallery, both of which are essentially obsolete (but which, I believe, are worth keeping online for Pentax historical interest).

I actually knew that but I didn't want to call you out. I have those links in my really old Favorites list.

I lurked and posted a bit on PDML. Once upon a time I did quite a bit with m-fortytwo (the domain expired last week) and a few other quiet things, but nothing by name.
