That was one of the best sites. Anyone know anything?
Several months ago, Jan told me in an email, and I think here on the board, that he was locked out of his own site, and was trying to get ahold of his tech guy, without success. It may be that the tech guy finally contacted him and the site is down because Jan is updating it, but that is pure speculation.
Thank you for your mail. Good to see the board growing!
I also noticed that The Cup can´t be approached. There is a problem for almost a year now. My ISP who hosts the site had vanished into thin air. He was like me a diehard fan and offered to host my site in 1998. In May 2010 we would go together to a Tull gig in Holland, but he didn´t show up. All I know is that his company has moved from the UK to China. He doesn´t respond to my mails and I cannot access my files (see the last update), while I have tons of new annotations to add. Let´s hope it will be online again.
The bummer is that I do not have copies of my pages, as I rework them live online with Aptana Studio software.... So there is no backup.
However, in a follow-up message Jan has some better news, i.e., that most of the site is preserved, at least as it was in 2009, and he provides the link to his back-up. So for future reference, take note:
However, it can be recaptured here, well most of it as it was in 2009:
You know, the last time I visited there I did get a warning from Avast about a malicious application, but Avast was successful in blocking it. I noticed that Cup of Wonder is also having similar "Jethro Tull webring" problems that we were recently experiencing. I hope Jan can fix these problems, by running an appropriate program to root out any viruses, toolkits, etc.
Thanks for warning our members, Tootull! I will send an email to Jan about the problem.
TM: Yes, his guitars in that song are great.

teddy: Seems like everyone trying to figure out " Eat Hermione for lunch" just don't get it. A Popular vegetarian line of food is advertised by a woman named Hermione. You can see the advertisement on line. Thus it is not oral sex with a office girl. Munch.

lclark354: Hello everyone. I recently finished a room addition, and can finally set up surround sound. I've purchased all the Tull sets, except, of course,TAAB. Is there a site where one can purchase & download the 5.1 files? Or, any word on a re-issue?

madjack1959: Hello to everyone from Lexington, Kentucky. Part of what led me here, was mention of Gentle Giant. I've listened to Tull for ages, and then was introduced to GG via Octopus I saw in the record store, and that was my start. I've never seen either "live" :
