HM is no longer working, indeed. But could someone give here the
reason why it stopped?

Dear Udai,
I spoke to Julio a few months ago. He said that he is still mourning
the passing of David Fowler and he has a new job. His heart and time
are not in HM right now, but he hoped to return. He sent out a few
messages after that, then stopped. I emailed him at his new address
and he sent me a one line reply. I'm going to write him again soon. I
miss him. I miss HM very much. Bob Taylor is trying to get the MAA
list serve active. Fred Rickey is an excellent historian. That could
turn into a good avenue for us.
If you want to write or call Julio,( it's not that expensive from
the US) I'll send you the numbers.
Peace, Don
