As one who is constantly visiting David's Avengers Forever site, I owe him a great deal, as do all of us who make use of the site. Today, I visited his "David Builds a Home" blog to see how he's doing. (http://davidksmith.com/home/news.htm)

I'm sorry to pass along the news that on February 20 of this year, he was diagnosed with "advanced congestive heart failure." Let's all wish him a speedy return to good health.

David has been through some really rough times. I haven't really checked his site since he dropped out of the fandom - we cover a lot of the same information anyway although I could probably do more to match his site. I worry about it disappearing overnight, especially as he advised Alan et al to host their material elsewhere a few years back.

I sometimes drop him a line but he rarely replies; he has greater issues to face.

I'm always visiting your site, too, Piers. (And am happy to be a Patreon supporter. I wish David would also allow us to contribute to his site.) I would hate to see either of your sites disappear. Between the two of you, you cover it all.

Awful to read, best wishes to David.


The disappearance of websites is a less important bad thing to happen by comparison, but the loss of the info and just the nostalgia of browsing the website you discovered from when you became a fan is saddening.

Wishing David well. I hope he gets the best possible help and care to return to the best of health soon. He was so encouraging to new (and old) fans for such a long time, and his site is still my first resource when I need to quickly look up an Avengers fact or give myself a cheering smile, what with his amusing and insightful comments on each episode.

I've moved this topic to a more suitable location as David was not involved in the show itself.

I'm very sorry to learn about David's situation, though it's comforting to hear that he has gone a long way to achieving a life's dream.

Many happy memories of the glory days and fun at TheAvengers.TV, and none of that would have happened without David.
