Someone (something?) is posting spam in the tune-o-tron,
the most recent additions (easily found by clicking on "browse all entries")
are just links to product websites.

Thanks, will have a look, though I haven't used my old-side password in years; so Paul may have to check on it.

I see the Tune-O-Tron has now gone thanks to the activities of spammers, what on earth do they get out of ruining such a good resource?   :(

If you hurry, you can still do tune searches and download via the Wayback Machine.  

use this: http://web.archive.o....net/tunes.html to access an old copy.  The browse function still works, or if you know how to manipulate the URL's arguments, you can still search for keywords.  Hint:  play with adding/modifying this: ?action=search&keyword=trumpet     (at the end of the link).
