    UPDATE!

    The HLPDB has moved to a shiny new webspace (same hoster as burstserial.com) and is up and running again.

    If you find any bugs, please holler. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

    Tried to create a new user acct. At work it just sat there after I clicked "save".
    Tried on the phone and it just goes back to the re-entry screen. Nitrodave08 is the username I tried to create

    Big update day for the HLPDB!

    Many people had problems receiving emails from the site and this has been fixed.

    The filter for special characters in file names (for picture uploads) has been enhanced as well.

    Enjoy!

    Hi guys,

    I am sorry to inform you that I will shut down the HLPDB before May 25th 2018 due to the new European General Data Protection Regulation.

    The legal hassle is too much for a private hobby project.

    It has been a great time, 12 years, wow!
    Thanks!

    EDIT: For those interested, here is the act in it's full glory:

    Is there anybody here with a LAMP webspace in the US who wants to take over the HLPDB?

    If you can get me DNS, FTP and SQL access I can install the site.
    I will remove all copyright text from me/my company from the code and we can get the site back online.

    Ladies & Gentlemen, we are live again!

    Ryan (57Freak) set up a webspace and the HLPDB is back and better than before:
    • Full SSL support (https)
    • Upload size up to 1MB per photo (from 400K)
    • The site is now totally ad free, no banners, no Google tracking, no PayPal donate button
    Enjoy! https://www.historiclespauls.com
