Turn to PP and/or TCR Feb 24, 2002

There are 2 mailing lists dedicated to the payment practices of translation agencies and other translation clients where you are more likely to get information on the agency you\'re inquiring about.



To subscribe, go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pp_dist for Payment Practices and http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TCR for TCR (Translation Client Review) and follow the instructions.



Good luck,



Erika

Unfortunately, the TCR list (a free list on Yahoo for translator/client info) has been recently deleted by its moderator.

The two best resources at the moment are the PP List, for payment practices, and

the TransPayment List, for payment practices - and a little more.



Then there is ProZ\'s Blue Board, to be taken with a grain of salt, IMHO; and now there is a mirror of the deleted TCR archives [-not-]



HTH,

Just a tiny bit of additional info... May 14, 2002

I\'m sure this was only an oversight...

The asker might be interested to note that the TCR list has moved to a new location (http://www.tcrlist.com), and is now subject to a small fee.



HTH - best regards, Ralf

free access to freely given information May 14, 2002

About the unexpected and overwhelming volume of positive feedback regarding the (now) freely available database: thank you,

All, you are wonderful!



To the few who find public domain information posted on a web site offensive (may I stress I am NOT the one who is charging for such info, nor am I the one stealing anything) and who threaten me with legal action -- please take your time to carefully read the relevant paragraphs that follow my message.



Best regards,



Ildiko

Database overload May 14, 2002

We regret to inform the unexpectedly high number of people that were using the free database (agency info) that late last night, long after we went to sleep, the server became overloaded by requests. It would be a simple matter to configure it to allow more database connections, but since our bandwidth had already reached the saturation point, it would not make much difference. Our server was never intended for high volume traffic. Rather than interrupt our normal network traffic, we have decided to disable remote access of the database.

This is purely a technical choice. The dubious legal claims and threats made by a small handful of people have nothing to do with this decision.



A personal note: for her repeated threats and clearly anti-immigrant tones expressed in her private messages, no e-mail from Laura Hastings will be answered (that includes her alias \"Susan\" from \"NY\"). To the two people who tried to impress us with their technical knowledge of the internet: Don\'t do that, it only makes you look stupid. FYI, our registrar is not our hosting company - we don\'t have a hosting company. The website runs on a Linux server in our home. Also, there is no rule or law saying we can\'t have a .org domain name. Since we run a \"not-for-profit\" website, as opposed to a commercial website, it is perfectly legitimate.



Regards,



Ildiko & Rossz Vamos-Wentworth
