The site is back up as passingafternoon.net thanks to Brandie. Terry, I know you've been in contact with Cristina so if they need help I'm sure you'll be on that list. Justin, I very much appreciate the offer to help, I'll pass on your contact info to brandie if any more help is needed.

I'd also gladly help out. I still miss the place and all those who posted there. Let me know.

I'd be more than willing to put in some work. Brett, you have my e-mail.

Alright everyone, sorry for the long gap in communication here. I have some bad news. Passingafternoon.com will not be coming back, at least as pa.com. There were some domain issues and it has been lost. So we can not get it back under that name. However, I have all the site content from forums to the mp3 collection. It is all intact. I just don't have time to get it set back up under a new name. If anyone here knows how to do so and is willing to do a lot of the work, I can help out with getting people the site content. The site would need some design help due to needing a new name, so it could either be modified or done all over from scratch. But I'm willing to hand all the content over to some people willing to put the time in to set it all back up. I even have a host paid for with content uploaded waiting for a new domain name and for all the old files to be edited. Just don't have the time to go through that myself. Anyone with the knowledge and time to get it going again?

Glad to hear there's a chance of the site coming back. It's still the most comprehensive fan site I've ever come across. I'd be glad to help in any way. Thanks, Brett.

Oops, email should be passingafternoon.com@gmail.com.

Hey guys, this is Brett from pa.com (the site owner). Yutzie is part correct, it has remained down because I simply haven't had the time to dedicate to the site like I used to. It went down because of spam again, and the host is terrible with support and handling those situations. So one of two things is likely going to happen. Either the site comes back in full capacity when I'm available to change to a better host and I recruit some people who have the time to do day to day site updates (if anyone's interested shoot me an email at passingafternoon@gmail.com), or I need to find an open source wiki type site so it can be edited by anyone and just have a few people on staff to monitor the activity (if anyone knows anything like this please get in touch with me). So that's the story, I apologize for how long the site has been down, just a lot going on with work and life getting in the way. I appreciate people wanting the site to come back and those willing to help out.

Dang, that's really too bad. It was a great fansite. Maybe now's the time to get some lyrics/chords and broader forums on this page here? Sam, I hope you're listening. We're trying to turn your songs into the next great American standards!

Doesn't look like it will be coming back anytime soon. Word on the streets is that running the site was too much for the admin, as his life is too busy as it is. So, sorry folks. I guess it could come back, but it's unlikely.

Awesome, thanks Muddy, I'll make sure to keep checking back. It's also the best source for legit Sam Beam chords and lyrics... I hate going to those disorganized, ad-infested tab sites.

this happened once before this year, not sure why. i think it took a couple of weeks, then it was back.
