For everyone who benefited from Anthony Bryant's knowledge over the years this is a very sad time. I just read about his passing away on another forum.

I would suggest that people copy his web site for personal future reference as there is not way of knowing how long it will be available.

Thanks for this reminder/suggestion. I have found Tony's website extremely useful on multiple occasions, providing info on specific garments, the various traditional ways of calculating & communicating the date and time (e.g. "at six bells"), and all sorts of other good, solid, information that I really don't think is available in English in as easy-to-find a format.

For those who do wish to save the site, in case it does go down, one of the easiest ways might be to save the whole thing as a PDF. If you have full Adobe Acrobat (even a trial version, but not merely Adobe Reader), there's actually a really straightforward function that will take a URL (such as www.sengokudaimyo.com) and run through all the sections & sub-page of the entire site, transforming the whole thing into a PDF for you.

Just find "Create PDF"-->"from website", click on "entire website," and you should be all set.

There may be other easier or better ways to do it, but this is what I came upon. Cheers.

would it be wrong to also preserve it on the archives?

I feel it might be best to ask the family their thoughts or wishes on that before going ahead to do it. What do others think?

I'd be full willing to mirror it on the S-A server, but I'd prefer to get permission first, not sure who I would ask.

I tried several different url to pdf creators but none of them worked with this site due to the fact that it is a framed web page, if anyone has a method that works please let me know.

If you use Google's Chrome browser, simply go to Tony's site. Then, in the options under "save as" you can save the entire site to your hard drive. Using Chrome or any other browser can then be used to read the site just like you would on the internet. Works perfectly and you don't need to mess around with PDF files.
