Sounds like the site could use some competition.

There was no other free site like www.worldofkrauss.com
Any competitor should feel very happy now. Competitor? I can’t imagine that UIUC could be one… it’s a university for God shake!
But if there is any should be really happy now this must be mostly the non-free to use softwares for airfoils, like profili 2 etc...

'0 teo' - how do we find out who was/is in charge of worldofkrauss.com? (An email to the kind maintainer might clarify why the site is down - and therefore why the quality of my life has dropped by 20%...)

"cucu" I tried to do so using a saved page in google*, but no e-mail address had never been given from www.worldofkrauss.com... they used to have a message form in case you wanted to ask / say something to them.
I am afraid that we will never find what happened...
Last saved page was updated on 25Feb2012

Thanks for your investigation, 0 teo. Well sometimes you just don't know the value of a thing/service until you loose it. So now it's on to XFoil, Profili 2 and what have we. So long.

Ok here is some data from whois site:
Domain Name.......... worldofkrauss.com
Creation Date........ 2008-01-01
Registration Date.... 2008-01-01
Expiry Date.......... 2013-01-01
Organisation Name.... Tom Krauss
Organisation Address. PO Box 61359
Organisation Address.
Organisation Address.
Organisation Address. Sunnyvale
Organisation Address. 94088
Organisation Address. CA
Organisation Address. US

those are the links I found:
http://whois.domaintools.com/worldofkrauss.com
http://who.is/whois/worldofkrauss.com/

The domain was to expire at the end of 2012.. But I don;t know what happened..
I am working on something and I was using this website as the main source for airfoil data >.<..
I dont think there are other sites which have data for airfoils like Supercritical NASA airfoils and we wont find a site that provides such an easy search tool as was in that site

No need to flood him with mail. I found Mr. Krauss' personal email & inquired about the sites absence. His server was damaged in a severe storm last week. He is already in the process of rebuilding. His goal is to be back online within days rather than weeks. Let's all be patient, our fav airfoil source will return soon.

I see that the sever is alive & breathing again

Quote:
It Works!

This is the default web page for this sever.

The Web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.
Soon he should be back up, then we should all kick him a few $ for rebuilding & maintaining this free database. (note: he has not asked for or hinted at a request for donations, this is purely my own sentiment. I will be giving what I can the payday after he comes back into full service)
