I'm caring for my project, which is the NBO files themselves. Your website was not part of that project. It was an additional project that was terminated before it ever became a notable resource. I never even had opportunity to refer anyone to that site, so it's best that it just be forgotten now.
Glen has been reliably providing hosting of the NBO files for awhile now, and for as long as he is willing to continue so, I'm happy with that arrangement. His URL is what I've been historically referring people to, and will continue doing so.
In addition, Paul's "Virtual Playing Orchestra" contains a majority of the instruments of NBO, so it's like a second source for that content. And he is providing alternate hosting.
have you made the license situation 100% clear
It is quite clear. Unlike earlier distributions of the NBO files, the current distribution is a single zip file containing a very logically organized directory structure. Each set of samples which pertain to a particular license is separated into its own directory, and contains a "license.txt" file that specifies the license for those samples, For example, the Violin/SoloViola directory contains samples that come from one source. In that directory is a "licence.txt" specifying the license for those samples. The Violin/SoloViolin directory contains samples that come from a different source. That directory contains its own "licence.txt" specifying the license for those samples.
Because NBO relies upon multiple sources (my criteria is to use the best-sounding, freely redistributable samples), there are multiple license.txt files. But you know how each instrument/samples is licensed.
