    "Just got a bill from my hosting provider and it is in the hundreds. This site is getting too expensive to run and barely any support from the users. Site will be temporarily offline until further notice."

    If the creator of NDSthemes is reading this, I have a couple of hundred gigabytes of spare bandwidth and about half a gig of space, but I could easily get rid of some old stuff. I don't really know the scale of the site and this likely wouldn't make a dent, but you could have full FTP access. I dunno, maybe you could use it as a mirror or something...

    Like I said, it's probably no help, but if there is anything I can do to help I'd be more than happy.

    He did have one. That's what he means by "barely any support from the users".

    if you like the page, take a look at Google Cache of NDSThemes.com, there is an Donate Button for Paypal.

    btw. i talk to NDSThemes and told him he should place an Donate Button on this offline page, he is not very interessted to do so.

    He's put it up now so everyone who wants this site to stay alive should pop in and donate a quid/bucl or two.

    Too bad, the site was premium.

    With GBAtemp having a download section...is there really any need for any other sites? No offense I'm actually curious if I am missing something? I mean I have the internet for 3 reasons ... GBAtemp, IRC, and newsgroups.... with those three things I rarely need to go anywhere else.

    Again not bashing ndsthemes but rather asking what it might of offered that GBAtemp did not?

    Several hundred skins for many flash carts and Moonshell that unfortunately aren't available at GBATemp.

    A HUGE amount more skins.

    A Waybacked version from July 2007 has LOTS more.

    If we could contact the owner, perhaps he has a backup that we could batch upload here.

    I too have a couple terabytes of free bandwidth and a few hundred gigs of disk space. Perhaps we can form a server balance system and mirror the files.
