I have been battling with Wikipedia for several months to have the link to the cups and balls museum removed from their web site. I refuse to allow it to remain up, because their site exposes magic. I also do not wish to pay for extra bandwidth usage.

From now on, until further notice, to get into the cups and balls museum, go to http://www.cupsandballsmuseum.com/home.htm

Hopefully, this will cut down on the incursions from Wikipedia.

Report the link to his provider, explain that he refuses to remove the link and that if it is not removed any bandwith charges incurred become the responsibility of the service providing him.

That won't work with Wikipedia. They are adamant about having the right to do this whether I want them to or not.

However, there is good news. I just visited the site, and the link to my pages is gone.

Glad to hear it, I generally just report the service provider, so far it's worked each time, knock wood Smile

I have the goods on them now. If the link goes back up, that is, if they find it, then I will turn them in to Go Daddy. Or maybe I will turn them into a frog.

Well, the b******s figured out how to find it. So here's the new URL. Go to http://www.cupsandballsmuseum.org . That will get you into the full web site.

There are "do gooders" who feel that knowledge is free and ...

What is the purpose of posting/publishing to the public if you don't want it used by the public as they see fit?

Go to http://www.cupsandballsmuseum.org Everything is there.

There will be password protection in the future, but I'll post it so everyone can find it but Wackypedia.

I never intended this to be linked to a high traffic web site that exposes magic.

Once my bandwidth exceeds a certain amount, I have to pay extra for it. With the site as graphics intensive as it is, the bandwidth limitation is a real one.

Okay, here's the deal. If you want a password to the cups and balls museum, please send me an e-mail at curator@cupsandballsmuseum.com.

I'll send your password back to you.

I hated to have to do this, but I should have done it long ago.

Bill,

Unfortunate as it may be to make these changes to the site, I'm very glad you didn't sit back and let Wikipedia win. It shows intergrity to fight against association with a site that exposes.

Bill,

Since you are running Apache, I believe you can modify the .htaccess file to mess with certain referrers - Like give them a 404.

Hopefully the password approach will work and you won't have to take other steps.

Later.....

I've put some "deny" notices in the .htaccess file, but they may be using proxy servers. I have a couple of friends who are specialists in this kind of thing who are working on the project now.

Justice for my wrinkled donkey!!!!!

Wikipedia took the link down, Hoorah!!!!

I'm going to keep it protected, though. That way I can reveal some things I wanted to tip.

If you have a problem logging on during the next couple of days, it's because I am moving the cupsandballsmuseum.com page to a new server. You can still get in through cupsandballsmuseum.org
