I know that the Learned Pig guy doesn't do apps very often, and mine's been no exception (working on six months now).. but it also appears like he doesn't even do security. So .. how long do I need to wait and how safe is it to be a member there as they've been compromised TWICE in the past month?

Jarrod,
Having been a member of the LP for years, I have never had any trouble even though the Pig has been hacked.
As for getting in, Marko travels extensively and six months is not too long to wait (or even a year).
It is certainly worth it!

Peter:

Oh, I'm patient Smile That's not the problem. Just a bit concerned regarding the hacking. So you can get through to the site even with the hacked page in play? Good Smile

How can you get into this site around the hack?

This seems to be working fine for me now.

BTW: Like Peter, I've also been a member for years and have never had a problem with security and this site. It is one of the best magic sites around and well worth any wait to get onboard.

Thanks,
Richard

I am a member also. It took about a month to get the 'ship. From what I've read, I musta got lucky or something. And I'm tickled that the site is up again.

To those of you who wait...keep waiting. As rtgreen said, the wait is worth it.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

I just applied 5 minutes ago and I have not recieved a response either. I do hope to try it soon as it seems to be spoken of highly.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

Lol. 5 mins ago? You have to wait like months and years to get accepted.

I joined about a year ago. It took about a month to process my membership. Unfortunately, I haven't accessed the site for about three months, and during the interim I reconfigured my computer and lost all my passwords. I emailed Marko and am now waiting for the PW. It's like I joined all over again... Smile

However, as others have said, it's worth the wait.

Yeah this is a bugger. I was in, but my email changed and I found myself out. Now I am trying to get back in...for years. But I miss the Poinc site Smile

So .. has anyone ever actually received a rejection notice ?
You know,
"I'm sorry, but your application has been rejected on the basis that your magic library is comprised of the TV scripts for the masked magician, and All Texas Hold'em does not qualify as a 4 aces trick. Better luck next lifetime."
Just hanging out with the rest of my fellow dregs.

I got in a few months ago, after waiting for quite some time. I'd actually forgotten when I applied. I enjoy it.

I became a member a couple of years ago, and I can tell you that the collection certainly has grown since then! It is a terrific site with lots of amazing reference material.

Have a good day!

It took me awhile before I got a reply. I was accepted and the info on the site was worth the wait. This is the 2nd most visited site I visit. 1st is Café.

Clifford, I went on the learned pig site a couple of minutes ago... The Poinc site is still available, as a memorial site... A nice place to remember him.

Marko must be around home. I sent him email about the hacked front page and received a reply in a couple of days. And yes, the Weird gene site is there in all its glory, including a guest book. Odd to see poeple writing to someone who won't be responding except on a spirit slate...

Keep trying. He's got a couple of great collections of magic ebooks on CD (including the Tarbell Course). Spend some money, support keeping the history of magic alive (an un-solicited testimony).

Yes, I am a magician. No I did not make my hare (hair) disappear... it just took early retirement.

Hi all,
I'm Marko, the webmaster of The Learned Pig Project website. I want to apologize for the inconveniently long waits you have experienced in getting a password to enter the site. A huge workload had prevented me from working on TLPP but just recently I sold a business I had which took most of my time and now I am freer and can devote more time to TLLP.

I recently processed more than 600 applications, some many months old so maybe some of you received your passwords. If not, I invite you to reapply at:

http://thelearnedpig.com.pa/register/forms/form1.html

This is the entrance test and is very easy for magicians.

There are new changes made in the main page of the Member Only Area and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised if you visit.

Best regards,
Marko
