The Learned Pig Project has been taken down. http://www.thelearnedpig.com.pa/home.html

It was a fun place to visit, to read about how they did things “in the old days”, and a still valuable resource for learning about Magic.

It will be missed.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

All because some idiot couldn't keep his hands away from the email bot. The situation was made worse by the replies people were sending out, which just cascaded the situation.

Instead of filling emails with filthy language, perhaps some of those folks should have:

EMAILED MARKO DIRECTLY TO INFORM HIM OF THE PROBLEM????

Several did inform Marko, but by that time there was nothing he could do.

That's too bad. I learned a lot from the reading books on his site

Awww, man! That was where I went to read Modern Coin Magic by Bobo! There was a TON of good reading there! Yeah, I'm bummed! What magician wouldn't be? A few scuzz-buckets ruined it for a LOT of people! Smile

This is the reason "children" should not be allowed onto the internet.

Bummer!

Geez, I just registered/signed up at learned pig to try and access Tarbell when I read about it here.. After about a week's delay...received a welcome note from Marco. The next day that deluge of spam showered down and I quickly unsubscribed...fearing I had been duped into joining a spammer web site or something. The place was legit? That definitely is a shame especially for newbies like me hungry for access to books.
Regards,

Yep, the Tarbell course (the original mail-order version, not including the newer chapters available in the bound volumes) is (was) there, as was Jinx, Bobo, and many others. I’m hoping that Marko will find a way to straighten things out, or possibly someone else can come alongside and restore that amazingly valuable resource. A tragic loss for the community.

Sad, one of the first sites I belonged to. Joined many years back and always enjoyed the reading.

Just checked again and it’s back up!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

And Thank You to Marko and anyone else who helped get this all straightened out. May you get an extra candy cane in your stocking!

Are you sure? I just checked the site and it says:

"Dear magic friend,
Due to security issues for which I don't have neither the time nor the inclination to fix, I have decided to finish The Learned Pig Project on December 15, 2011."

Is there a new URL I'm not aware of?
