Be sure you put something like "password request" in the subject line. I don't open e-mails without subjects.

I spent another couple of hours wandering the museum today. Found several new treasures. Thanks for leaving the door open!

Wow... I have been away from the fold for quite some time now and am shocked to learn of the C&B Museum sale and closing. As others have stated, this wonderful resource is a treasure trove of information and I have learned more from it, and Bill, about the cups than I can accurately express.

Bill, you are a joy and an inspiration. No matter what path you choose to take going forward please know that I wish your continued success in all endeavors.

Best,

Doug

Yes, I want to know too. I wish so badly I would have been able to get a username/password before Mr. Palmer started shutting things down.

Bill, from the fact that you are now focusing on music, maybe you would consider taking a young magician with a computer and a printer and progressively go through the history behind each cups in your museum? Who else but you could really relate the value of sets that are truly historical even when apparently common.

Most of that is in the database. There are parts of the database that are visible only to the administrator.

Just when you thought it was all over, another update.

I'm putting this in here, because when you search for the cups and balls museum on Google, this particular thread comes up. Hopefully, some of the people who think I'm gone will read the last post in the thread.

Those of you who know me well, know that I have been through some interesting times (as the Chinese saying goes!). In 2017, I was informed that I needed to undergo some rather serious surgical procedures. I survived them without much difficulty, and I am now in much better shape than I deserve to be in! However, just as I was undergoing the first and most difficult of them, the museum site was forced offline by a series of strange events. It took me a year and a half to get the basic site on line, but I didn't have the database running.

I put out a call for software experts who could help me unscramble the database. A fellow named Tom Stamm from California volunteered to help me, and in just a couple of weeks, he had recovered most of the database. So I am in the process of adding more cups to the database.

The last set of cups that have been added to the museum are a set of Tommy Wonder "Stage Cups" that were made by the late Auke van Dokkum. They are not in the database yet, but they will be soon.

I'll probably keep about a hundred sets of cups. The rest will go on the block or will be sold to private collectors.

Meanwhile, I thank all of you, my Magic Café and Cups and Balls Museum friends, who have made this whole project worthwhile and, actually, possible.
