Help Rebuild the BibleWorks Blog!

Written by jdarlack on January 27th, 2008

Well, I’m not sure what has happened to the files, and Yahoo has not been responsive, so we will name this little episode “Yahoops!” from now on.

I was able to recover a few files, but many have perished. So, if you have any of the add-ons listed below (with all accompanying files; e.g. *.bww, *.ddf, etc.; preferably in a zipped folder) then please comment on this blog post or reply to the BibleWorks Forum thread and list what you have. Reply especially if you have a way of “moving” very large files. I’ve also set up an email for the blog: So if you can email me files, that would be the way to do it.

Thankfully, because of the the Internet Archive (, I was able to upload quite a few files, but there are still many files that need to be restored. Here’s the list of files that we need:
