I’ve took it offline, maybe someone wants the source code and database.
It was much fun, time to move on.
UPDATE: 20230228 – It is online again.
(I’ve got some mails and mentions in music forums)
At least i’ve got some nice reactions
I’ve create my own bww/bwm to parsons code convertor.
Rest of the website is php, mysql … first one started in 2001 using php3, until php7.
PARSONS CODE: OMG, you don’t know how long I have been waiting for a search engine to find tunes in my head. I thought about creating some kind of dictionary based on theme notes, or searching through bww files for sequences. What a thrill to find your site. I just hum a tune, use the up, down, repeat letters and… like magic the title is found. You are a genius. I will never be stumped for a title again. Thanks so much, John
Other successes i’ve heard of are: 2 Youtube movies being identified, a nameless bww file and mp3’s
Mail from Dave: Hiya My name is Dave Mason. I put a few tunes together a few years ago called "Tummle Yer Wilkies" which, I see, gets mention on your website. However, I see that you're not sure where people can access the tunes. Well, the book is free to download from https://sites.google.com/site/tummleyerwilkies/home and I hope to have volume 2, "Tummle Yer Wilkies Too!" uploaded in the near future.
