    IMSLP dissapears - any news

    I'm devastated, looks like IMSLP is off line again ... they normally put up a "regular maintenance" page when they're tweaking their knobs.

    Eeeeiiiikkkk.

    Can any access this at present (www.imslp.org)
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Oh my gosh ... not again ... I hope not. I can't access it from the US either

    Hopefully it's just a server crash, or hosting problem.

    Thankfully, I have been downloading and storing hundreds of public domain pdf scores for organ for the past year or so, adding to my 'virtual' library.

    Yes, Lars, me too. I now have 5 days off, where I planned on continuing my orchestration of Puccini's La Bohéme (for small[er]) orchestra. Lucky I saved the individual PDFs on my work computer. Damn nuisance that I've got to trek into the office to get the files.

    Art Rock, my friend, thanks for that (I thought as much) and thanks as it has a helpful link.

    The MPA withdrew their claim ... IMSLP is back up and running again.

    It is quite apparent that the MPA made a serious error and public outcry seems to have won .

    The whole story can be read on this IMSLP forum page.
