    I've noticed recently that the pages listing tower clock installs is missing.
    Homepages.sover.net is no longer available. I believe it was maintained by Donn Lathrop who recently passed.
    Is there some way or someone who has access to this info so it can be posted online once again?
    I saved some of it on my computer, but not the entire site, I wish I had.

    I checked to see if the Internet Archive had captured Donn's pages but it looks like they did not. As you noticed sover.net has merged with another company and all the old homepages appear to be gone.

    I almost captured those pages 15 years ago, but Donnl was still managing them and I felt he did not want any assistance at that time.

    A lot of the Seth Thomas material is on the NAWCC web site.

    I, too, often thought about copying it, and hadn't. I'll bet Sover/First light took a backup. we can probably get it if we ask....who wants to make the ask?
