Subject: what happened to the digitrad downloads?

Having recently got a PC at home, I thought I'd download the digitrad.
Following th links, it seems that its not available right now. It says "back soon" - but then I don't know how long its been saying that - nor what amount of time soon might be.
Can anyone tell me, please, where its gone, how long for etc.
Also - would it run on XP anyway?

Thanks

I believe it would run on xp. I seem to recall that it was removed because some virus scanners were giving an (apparently bogus) alarm regarding the zipped file.

Last I heard from Dick Greenhaus the latest release was nearly done - wich is probably what they are wating for to reinstate the downloads.

Hi-

There are DOS, Mac, and Windows versions of the 2002 edition of the Digital Tradition Folk Song Database on our Download page. I think the downloads are still working, but I'm reluctant to test-download the database every time I answer this question.* Dunno why - I think my Catholic upbringing makes me feel it's "wasteful."   ;-)
I mean, think of all those poor children in China who go to bed without any data.....

-Joe-


*(but every time I've tested, it has worked)
