Do they have a website? How much are they charging you?
Your mention of a website reminded me that I've been wondering what to do about my website when I go. It's now got around 250 arrangements (with more to come) and I wouldn't like to think they'll all be lost when I pop off. I'm quite a bit older than David, so it's a prospect that looms a bit larger for me. I've kept my eye open for organisations willing to keep a website going, but never come across one
I think the best thing to do is to distribute the content of the website to as many people as possible so that it can live on as something in the community. So, one site, and mirror sites, and an easy way to download everything. The more people who have the content, the better chance that it will exist in the future.
Six months before 9/11, I interviewed for a job on the 86th floor in Tower 2 of the World Trade Center. I did not get the job. One year after 9/11, the same company hired me. I learned that they lost had all of the software for the system they had been building for ten years. When they went to get the code from the offsite backup tapes, they realized that the system admin had never verified the backups, and that they were all bad!
They were saved because one employee had taken all of the code home on his laptop, against corporate policy, I might add, and they were able to use what he had copied to continue development.
