Looks like the domain expired on the 23rd April.

The Battlegoup Builder is a good tool and a real help. It would be great if there would be an official version with all the lists and constant updates. This could be paid by crowdfunding - I would give my fair share and it would be a great advantage for the whole system (and its players).

I have a tip for you that I originally discovered by accident. I would not have shared it, except that now it seems we may lose this useful site.

I was trying to save the print out page of one of my battlegroups. I discovered that if you save the page as an HTML file on your PC, it saves the entire site with all the lists and the program runs in the browser, not on a server. So you then have a local copy that works even if you aren't connected to the Internet. I haven't tried saving lists, but it does mean that you can keep a copy of the builder for your own use.

It's such a useful tool, I too hope he (Greg ?) comes back and adds Wacht am Rhein and Tobruk one day.

I downloaded the source and had a look with a view to possibly updating. But nope. I can see why it's dropped. He's done a great job, but adding books is a MASSIVE task.
