http://luna.pos.to/whale/ has extinguished since Sep. 2021. And I released Whaling Library Archive, its archive under Masaaki Ishida, the author’s permission. I asked someone if he knows Mr. Ishida directly and that person contacted Mr. Ishida. I thank that person.
The circumstance is like this.
9 May, 2022
- DNS answers the IP address of luna.pos.to but I cannot access Whaling Library. So I demanded atw.jp , its server operator to recover it.
- atw.jp answers that their hosting service on pos.to has finished and that they has told that to the website owner.
- I reported the extinction to my friends on the issue of whaling.
- One of them found https://usewill.com/dpoke/c/UW24/UW24974.html, the source that the mail service and the webservice of pos.to has finished. And that leads the conclusion that email@example.com , Mr. Ishida’s mail address is extinct now.
- Before the extinction, I have ripped Whaling Library’s the final version since I was thinking of providing him with the web space on my home server. Someone recommend me to release the archive. I put it for showing some limited friends but I didn’t decide to release it before getting Mr. Ishida’s permission.

- I found someone who looked like knowing Mr. Ishida directly. And by email, I asked that person if he could contact Mr. Ishida with explanation that I wanted to release the mirror site.
- On that person’s reply, he said that he had matters and he would try to contact Mr. Ishida by snail mail on 16 May, the coming Monday.

- From Mr.Ishida’s new email address, I received his email that he got the contact from that person. Mr. Ishida permits me to release the archive if I do it as the archive of the past website.
- I released Whaling Library Archive
- I sent thanks mails to them.
