Sounds like there's a lot of requests to get Dave Peters' reconstructions and overall site info up. I suggest a petition. So many people have offered to host, and there are some free services online, maybe he'll respond to the demand in petition form and choose a free alternative to his old site.
As long as no one demands that he spend his money where he doesn't want to, and free alternatives are offered, I see no problem with the request.
I also miss his site greatly. I need it now, too, for Pteranodon reconstructions, more than ever. I would love to participate in a petition or whatever.
