With the announced merger talks between One Savings Band and Charter, I wanted to look at the 1SBB thread on Mark Taber's site, but the saved link lands me here on this board.
Which is very nice, but DAK what happened to Mark?

Call him (or email) and ask. He's very approachable.

Meanwhile, there's a relevant thread here already:

Moderator Message:
I have deleted the contents of this post as they inadvertently gave the wrong URLs and were misleading.

The link to the WRONG site which is NOT Mark Taber's site is http://www.fixedincomeinvestor.co.uk/x/default.html .

At present Mark Taber's own site is redirecting traffic to here, The Lemon Fool. We don't know whether he has done this deliberately, perhaps because he thinks that TLF is the best place for folk to come whilst he is (presumably) doing other things himself.

My mistake, sorry. According to my Firefox...

Your connection is not secure

The owner of www.fixedincomeinvestments.co.uk has configured their web site improperly.
To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this web site.

www.fixedincomeinvestments.co.uk uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate expired on Friday, 07 December 2018, 09:06:01. The current time is 11 March 2019, 10:14.
Error code: SEC_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERTIFICATE


So looks like someone needs to tell Mark about it...

Until it gets sorted, you can look at the archived version in the Wayback Machine.

I did email to tell him a couple of months ago. I guess he's just stopped running the site.
Pity, it was a powerhouse for a while.
Thanks for the Wayback link. I'll see if I can find the discussion I was looking for.

The web is an ephemeral thing.

edit. Not there. The Board index is there, but not the content.

How weird! It's not just your saved link, the problem is widespread. All the link on his Twitter and LinkedIn pages divert to this board too.

Acording to my header analysis tool his server is responding with a 301 Permanent Redirect to Lemonfool. No intermediate steps. Very odd.

Ahhh.
Mark and Log set up their site after TMF folded.
Now that things are well established here, the rationale for the hassle of running a separate site is less compelling, so he's directing people here, and hopefully OBR and Log will themselves post here in future.

Good.

Shame that Mark's content is lost though.

That would be good but loglorry hasn't been "active" here since May 2018 memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=4379 and I've yet to find a registration for OldBoyReturns (although he could be posting away under a different username, it is more than likely he'd have made himself known here).

Mark's website is not usable currently. My browser warns me that it is not secure every time I try to load it: "WARNING: POTENTIAL SECURITY RISK AHEAD" [Firefox]

Then if you bypass the warnings it redirects to The Lemon Fool, as several posters have already noted...
