Thanks Harry for all you have done for the saxophone community. Best wishes. If we want SOTW to continue as it has, it is up to us. No worries.
Well... it is not that bad of an idea (or dream, for that case) to organize an international meeting... of SOTW members....Thanks Harry for all you have done with SOTW. This might sound crazy but I discovered SOTW after many of my medical issues and when I fell into depression. For a while I felt like it was my only connection to the world. I didn't want to talk to people or ask for help but I had no problem coming on SOTW and reading and posting every day. Not sure what would have happened to me without it. I came out of my fog eventually and was ok but I owe a huge debt of gratitude to you and SOTW. I pray for many blessing for you and your family and hope to meet you someday down in the Caribbean.........(I can always dream...........) Steve
Thanks Harri for starting the site in the first place - it's an awesome resource for us all. Getting out of the admin side and back into the saxophony side sounds like a good decision. I hope you did well out of the deal!...
I am sad and also pleased to inform you that SOTW will be now operated under new ownership
We keep a number of our own backups and the site its self is backed up and archived every few hours. As long as there is electicity and the interenet the site will continue to exist and be a free resource.I hope you're right, Philip, but can you expand on why you say that? Is the SOTW site mirrored or archived somewhere, say on an open-access server that allows full content downloads? That would be one strategy for ensuring the information persists. Of course, archive.org might hold snapshots of the data at various moments, but it's not as reliable as a public mirror site.
Phil already corrected his typo.Hello,
The URL used to be saxontheweb.net. Is it going to change to .com, as listed in your post?
It's because you don't believe tongue position affects the tone, Pete. The forum hates you!New management ownership, please explain why my posts are now going into moderation, as if I'm a spammer. I have contributed to this site every year financially (don't I pay enough?) , I've written articles, and worked for nothing as a moderator.
This is a bad omen. Come back Harri!
Is there a recommended way to contact you and/or whoever at VS is running the site now? I don't get an answer to my PMs directly to you and I know the contact form at the bottom of the page may go to admins in general.Hello everyone,
My name is Philip, I am a community manager for Verticalscope, I work with a small team that will continue to manage the webmaster duties for SaxOnTheWeb.net.
We are here to help primarily with the technical end of things and help make the jobs of the current Mods/Admins easier. I posted a real basic run down to answer common questions below. If you have more questions or concerns please feel free to post them in response.
