Yes, I get an immediate "server not found" message. Does this imply that the URL doesn't even translate to an address? Usually, searching unsuccessfully for a web address takes a while before giving up.

I had some email correspondence with Andrew in July last year when I sent him some NKT transistors.

I have his email address and will drop him an email later.

The domain expiry date for wylie.org.uk 6th April 2022. Hosted by godaddy.

But ping and traceroute both fail. So something strange is going on.

I've had an email from Andrew confirming the the site is running again. I won't quote the email in full, but it's possible that the site may be down again for a couple of days. Andrew also said that it's good to know people are using the site.
