From the IMSLP Forums:
One year ago, on July 10, 2010, operations of the IMSLP-EU server were officially announced on these forums. Here are some actuals about the use of the IMSLP-EU server during its first year of operations:
- Total uptime: 99.97%
- Number of files downloaded: more than 1,700,000
- Total data transferred: more than 3.3 TB
- Number of files present on the server: about 1,800
- Average number of downloads per file: about 950
- Largest number of downloads for a single file: more than 38,000 (the full score of “Pini di Roma” by Ottorino Respighi)
To celebrate IMSLP-EU’s first anniversary, Puffin Point ([url]https://puffinpoint.com/[/url]) has introduced two new IMSLP-EU specific merchandise items:
- the IMSLP-EU t-shirt, available in two colours (white and black) at £ 9.99 (for each item purchased, £ 2.00 will fund IMSLP-EU). The t-shirt shows the IMSLP-EU “starry clef” logo designed by Juliane Kiefner;
- the IMSLP-EU postcard set, available at £ 4.99 and including five postacrds in each (for each item purchased, £ 1.00 will fund IMSLP-EU). The postcards show Princess Europa (see here and here) playing flute over the white bull that was a transformation of Zeus. Postcards are also designed by Juliane Kiefner.
All IMSLP users are welcome to order such items to Puffin Point to celebrate the IMSLP-EU anniversary and support the project.
Furthermore, IMSLP-EU wants to tangibly thank those IMSLP users who contributed with a generous donation to IMSLP-EU during its start-up year. Such donors are entitled to obtain from Puffin Point a free IMSLP-EU anniversary item, offered by IMSLP-EU, as follows:
- IMSLP-EU donors who donated an amount of 15 Euro or more are entitled to receive either a IMSLP-EU t-shirt or two IMSLP-EU postcard sets;
- IMSLP-EU donors who donated an amount between 10 and 15 Euro are entitled to receive one IMSLP-EU postcard set.
Shipping costs up to 499 grams are also covered by IMSLP-EU, so donors may take the opportunity to add their own order for further Puffin Point items, especially those supporting IMSLP and IMSLP-EU, within the same shipment paid by IMSLP-EU.
Donors will be soon contacted via email to the same address that they used for the donation to IMSLP-EU, and they will receive instructions about the way to claim their IMSLP-EU gift. Donors who have changed their email address in the meantime should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain such instructions.
A warm “thank you” also to all other donors that are not eligible for a gift. We would like that there is a gift for everyone who donated even just one Euro, but the IMSLP-EU budget cannot afford it. We anyway acknowledge that their contribution has been crucial to support IMSLP-EU in its first year of operations. Many thanks also to all the IMSLP users and the IMSLP staff for their support.
