Laportes website not available
To everybody,

The website of jaques laporte, which had valuable information about HP calculator hardware, software, history and algorithms is not longer available.

http://www.jacques-laporte.org/

Does anybody know what happened? I really like to have this website back.
It contained also an HP-25 java emulator with debugger. Do I have to rewrite my own HP-25 debugger now?

Bernhard

That's one small step for a man - one giant leap for mankind.

I've noticed it also. Let's hope it will be back soon.
In the meantime you can access a snapshot from last December on archive.org.

Hope it's not gone for good. That would be a huge loss.

This is very sad news. I feel like having lost somebody like a friend, that I never met. His research helped me to develop the new ACT chip. And it was always a great pleasure full of discoveries to read his articles when I was visiting his website.

My deepest sympathy to his friends and relatives.

Hello,

Just a few words to add my feelings to yours ; I learned so much thanks to Mr. Laporte... no doubt his work will survive him, a genuine contribution to technical knowledge perpetuation.

Above it all, my deepest thoughts go to his family and close relatives.

(English isn't my native language, so please forgive any mistake)

Sorry to hear that. I enjoyed his website and the discussion about the CORDIC algorithms.

Very sad news…

Last year I downloaded Jacques Laporte's website for offline viewing.
If will not be violation, I could share this archive for all members, and can anyone be able to recover this website in memory of its Founder...

While I am not a Lawyer, I can say that most cases of people copying websites have been found to be OK, since after all, the content was public for anyone to see or copy in the first place. The issues come if you try to make money by displaying someone else's copyrighted content.

It is good practice to also ask his family's permission to do so, however I would not wait for it since it can be presumed to be OK.

Please do share it; I'm sure Jacques would have wished this community be able to see his work.

Isn't it available already via the link Didier posted above?

If you navigate on the snapshot stored at archive.org you'll notice that not everything has been archived and some pages/pictures are missing.
See for example this page.

This usually means the embedded photos were not hosted in the same place as the web-page content. You may be able to track the links to where they were hosted, but it too may be gone now.

Oui, merci, I see. Seems I was lucky since I didn't observe such gaps on the pages I visited.
