I will repeat: is this for propoaganda purposes, or is something deeper afoot? In the meantime, I will accept your sad assessment that "easy sites" can be randomly hacked for cruddy advertising spamming. In any event -- in the literal sense -- what an absolute crime!! Since you mentioned Russian Cialis knock-
offs, it kind of reminds me of those three Russian babes who conducted a risque anti-Putin event at a major Orthodox church in Moskva -- I'd like to wipe the s..t-eaten grin off their faces, and also here too!

Ahh, well.... this too shall pass.

LOL! grin

I have a feeling that Greg is working very hard to get the e-cital back in action. He takes this stuff very seriously, and all of these technical glitches are extra-ordinary. Perhaps Greg will share what he knows of the sleazy underworld of internet spamming when he gets everything running again. Did you ever watch the Pixar movie "The Incredibles"? I love this line: "Behold the Underminer! I am always beneath you! But nothing is beneath me!" laugh

I'm so sorry about this, and I share your disappointment. I know how hard we all worked to put this together, and how excited we've been to listen to these wonderful performances. I'll let you know when we're up and running again.

Thanks for your understanding,


I'm sorry you and Greg are having to deal with these kinds of problems ( and with us smile ). I appreciate all of your efforts in putting it together, and working to keep it operational. Thank you.

It strictly propaganda, and some of it is hysterical! You can clearly tell that the spammers are not native English speakers. There are thousands of them too, not just one source.

Greg is working very hard. Any comments posted in the last couple of days will be lost, but at least we'll be back in action soon. Thanks for your support guys. I know virtually nothing about these things and wish I had more tech skills to help correct the problems.

We are back up and running!

PRESENTING UNSUNG HEROES III

The original link in the OP will no longer work, but the above will! You will notice that Greg has added a paragraph on the presentation page apologizing for the problems and explaining that all comments were lost in the transition. We literally have a clean slate.

Enjoy!

-------

Edit - Kreisler fixed the URL link in the OP, so either link will now work smile

Thanks, Heidi! Well, again, the 1st Movement of the Persichetti Sonata is missing -- can you retrieve it, or can I re-send it if it can't be retrieved?

Heidi, an update: I just uploaded the file again, this time with my name, and so it should be included in the Submissions.

Hi Tim,

Yes, it appears that the first movement has been added!

------------

Can we really dare to hope that we are done with the glitches? Fingers crossed. So far, so good. I look forward to listening to everyone's submissions.

Also, Kreisler was kind enough to edit the URL in the original post...meaning that anyone who clicks on the original link will be directed to the correct site.

Thanks all,
Heidi

No big thing, but the page title references the Beethoven e-cital, not Unsung III.

Thanks, wr. I've made Greg aware of the problems, and he assures me that he fixed them, but I'm still seeing two problems with the "Present" page. If I could fix them myself, I would!

On the bright side, we're able to listen again. smile

Part of me wants to re-construct all of the comments I had already made, just so there's a record of them somewhere. The other part of me is too lazy, and hopes that all of those comments I made were read by the performers. I also wish there was a way to re-create the "buzz," as though the e-cital had just gone "live."

Ah, well. Suffice it to say, there sure is a lot of good music posted to this e-cital! Nice job, contributors! thumb

Thanks again, Heidi and Greg!

--Andy

I see we've been spammed again.

I think it is strange that they are always so quick. Maybe it is somebody who is actually reading this thread and knows exactly when the site is up. crazy

That posting has been there a few days. As I've said, Greg said he'd fix it. He's involved in a huge project at work right now and doesn't have tme to check in, unfortunately.

But hey! I see marketing potential. To recreate the buzz, as Andy says, maybe we could advertise it as a dual purpose e-cital. Couldn't you just see it now? Enjoy wonderful performances by our PW members and buy Viagra at the same time!! smile

And now I'm getting an error code on that above link, even though it worked earlier today frown

I'll look into that and get that fixed. Sorry for the delay, guys.

Maybe someone reading this with more tech know-how than me can advise you, in which case we would just allow you to make a late submission. We would love to listen!
