I just recieved an e-mail with my username and password for the "Learned Pig". It seems I have been very fortunate in this. I can't wait till I get to browse the site a little more.

I don't really have a good reason to post this, but since I spend so much time at the Café' I thought this would be the best place to strut.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

How long did it take you to get in? I took me a few months.

I think about 3 months or so.

According to another e-mail he has been quite behind, up to 800 applications! It is a great site and I highly recommend it.

I applied over a year ago and never heard anything. But I didn't want to reapply because I heard that it gets you banned.

The e-mail I recieved from him (Marko) Seemed like it was coming from a pretty freindly, and down to earth guy. Of course I've only recieved one e-mail and have not really had any conversation with him, so I don't know what else to say. However personally, I would reapply, if it took years.

Congratulations Josh Riel. The Learned Pig Project is a Great site just as the Magic Café' is a Great site and is a gold mine of information. It's like having your own personal Library of great works on Magic (and much less expensive).

I finally received my password, too, after a couple years at least. There's lots of good material there, so I'll be excited to peruse it in the future.

Mine came in about 3 weeks, I had largely forgotten about it until it came. A good site and their archiving old books is a great idea. Found the "entrance exam" to be quite simple. Guess they just process them in batches when they get around to it.

Marko seems like a nice guy and in a recent email says hes begining to get more time to run the site, I think he said hes replied to all the applicants now and the siteshould now be up and running more smoothly.

Yep, sounds like he finally got enough time and did a mass applicant review. I applied a few months ago. It alsmost sounds like the whole queue got emptied (wonder how much caffeine was involved?). I agree, it's a great site. Worth the wait just to read "Our Magic" (which I have now done).

TLP, what a site.

Well worth the waiting time, although saying that I only waited a few days which was impressive as id heard the waiting list was a long time.

They must have more time to work on it these days. I applied yesterday after reading this thread. I just logged on this morning and I've got my password. I'm in too!!

I'm not a member at the Learned Pig, but I found this site that is supposed to be a mirror of it: http://sky.prohosting.com/fizbin/athenaeum/magos/mirror.html . Does it have everything that the Learned Pig contains?
