Hi everyone,

As you've probably noticed, this site has not been updated in years. Something that started as a temporary break due the lack of time resulted in a permanent hiatus. I realised that the static structure made updating the site a major pain. There was no way to incorporate updates in a (semi-)automatic way, and doing that by hand was extremely awkward and time-consuming. At some point, I was pondering redesigning the site to make it more dynamic, but this idea was never materialised due various reasons. Furthermore, with the rise of discogs, the whole concept of the site became pointless. When I launched dark science (2000), discogs was in its first stages - it lacked a great deal of information and was much different to what it is now. Getting information about a particular single released a decade ago (not necessarily rare) was at times challenging. The situation has, however, dramatically changed throughout these years. Now almost almost every piece of information about an artist or release is just a few clicks away. Duplicating all the work by thousands of music enthusiasts from all over the world is just plain pointless. In a nutshell, I stopped fooling myself about getting around to updating the site some time in the near future and just decided to give it up.

This site will go offline at some point in the future, as it is hosted on the university web space and I am about to graduate. I do not have any plans to moving it elsewhere, as hosting a dead project seems futile to me. Therefore, I let all the information into public domain (except the images as they are property of respective owners). Feel free to use all the information here in any way you like. It would be great if someone could merge this information into wikipedia or something along these lines.

Thanks to all the people who have sent me information and supported throughout all these years. If you've got any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at antacid ät gmail dot com. Don't use the dubnetwork address, as I am about to abandon it as well (although I still occassionally do check it).

Over and out
