    Firefern Converter Down

    Is it just me? If not, anybody know what's up or how to reach Mirar?

    It isn't just you. Several folks in my kin have also reported it being down.

    This has happened a few times before and has always come back up withing a few days. This time though is a first for me, as I have never seen it 404 before. Lets hope all is well with Mirar and that this problem can soon be fixed

    It's been down now for over a week .... the 404 could mean that the Web site was pulled down for some reason or other.
    Pity, because Firefern, in my humble opinion is the best program that I have found for converting Midi to ABC.
    Unless some other GURU can come up with something similar, I guess we are all stuck on the Waiting Platform to see what happens.

    I have been in contact with Mirar for a little while regarding the converter and he has decided he no longer wishes to maintain the system.

    I have offered to take over the project and Mirar has accepted. At last check, he was working to package up the system to transfer control over to me. I do not have any details I can offer as of yet, but I do plan to make the system available for use by the LOTRO community again as soon as humanly possible.

    Once it is back up and fully operational in it's current state, I do plan to resume development and start expanding it's capabilities. I have a few other LOTRO music system related projects I am working on as well, so hopefully they will be available in the near future as well.

    Oh, a thousand thank you's! Thanks to Mirar for having made it possible and to Rathinosk for being willing to carry it forward. We can hardly wait!

    I don't know how you feel about this, but if donations were needed to keep up the site, I bet a paypal button might find use. I certainly would give it a click from time to time! Don't beat me for being bourgeoisie; just trying to be realistic and since we can't download it as a program to our computers, I don't want to see it disappear again!

    Firefern/Mirar: 's sad to hear yer not continuing with the converter yerself. But that aside: Me most heartfelt thanks and gratitude fer the service yer have offered over the years. I have heard some outstanding results from the converter, and I have spent way too much time with it meself, tinkering with tunes because it was just so much fun! Once again, thank yer!

    I add my thanks to Mirar for all the work in the past in supporting this fantastic tool. And wonderful news that it will continue with Rathinosk.

    Now, just to soothe my withdrawal symptoms - are you able to offer an ETA for when we can get back to transcribing?

    Thanks for the update, Rath! You know how antsy us internet game playing type people are about wanting to know what's going on! That should hold us for at least.......another week.

    I hope the testing goes well and it works like it did before. Question...does this mean all the songs on it before will remain? I was still working on a few things and was curious if I have to start from scratch lol
