It's not an offer, I'm just saying we have one that in the past.

For any future project we'd have to understand what is needed and what it would take
to do, before we could offer anything.

As long as it is just static HTML content that does not conflict with new content (i.e., if there is nothing else under that URL now), it would be possible to put it back into its place. To do this, please send me an email with the archived HTML content and let me know where to put it. I do not have access to any old versions of the site, so I cannot help in finding the old content.
