I apologise for raising this topic again, but can anyone tell me what has happened to the old FRDBI. Once again, I find that I cannot get access. Are the historicalrecords publically available,  or has the decision been made to 'put all that behind' us and consign it to the dustbin of history, in the pursuit of that which is  'shiny and new', but not 'fit for purpose'?

It went off on Friday but I used it yesterday, Saturday. They might be doing maintenance or transferring records to FRDBI2. I shall try to find out.

Many thanks Anthony. I have tried this morning and I am still getting an error message. At least there is hope that it will return. I do find it so quick and easy to use. At some point, I will have to get up to speed with the new database, but a couple of genera I was checking on there, were did not even appear, following a search.

The problem is that the old and well loved FRDBI was run by Paul Kirk, now an honorary research associate at Kew(I think). He also curates the Species/Index Fungorum.
This database was a personal project, run on his hardware, and which he made available to us.

But he is in the throes of retirement and can not continue with the old FRDBI. This is why BMS is developing the new database which will feed into the NBN database. It has the support of the British Museum and will be run by the BMS.

So what to do with the original database? It has been moved to the servers at Kew to be looked after by the IT department there. But is not a Kew product so we will need to ask them what they intend to do with it.

I am advised that Paul Kirk also has difficulty accessing it.

If people wish to continue to access it perhaps they should let Kew know.

Until all the old records are transferred across to the new database which I think is what is to happen then we need access to those records.
