October 21, 2005: ArmenianHouse.org is back!
Armenian Electronic Library is back online with even more free
content. But why was it offline on the first place? First our web
site became the target of a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service)
attack along with number of other Armenian web sites, and then we
were busy looking for a better protected web hosting provider while
also struggling with number of technical and organizational issues.
So what's new? Report
on the American Red Cross relief expedition of 1896 to Asia Minor,
which was headed by Clara
Barton—the legendary founder of the American Red Cross
Society is added to the Armenian Genocide
section. Also added Vardananq—
the famous novel by Derenik
Demirchyan in the Russian section of
the library. And the last but not least: after 2 years of delays
the text of Call
of the Plowmen by Khachik
Dashtents is now complete in the Armenian section of the library.
September 20, 2005: The book about Vahan Teryan sponsored by
ArmenianHouse.org now published
The book "How can I sing the memory of yours..." by Rafik
Ghazaryan is published however due to limited number of copies it
will be distributed among the libraries and literary institutions
of Armenia and probably will not be for sale.
June 10, 2005: ArmenianHouse.org awarded with 1st category award
in the "Mashtots 1600" contest
This came as a total surprise to us: ArmenianHouse.org was awarded
by the 1st category prize in the "El. Mayreni" nomination
set by the «Friends of Matenadaran» foundation in the Mashtots1600
contest for which we got $500 in cash. Understanding that it is
hardly possible to distribute this money among two dozen people
who had contributed to our project during the last four years we
decided to give all the money for something useful. Thus we sent
them to the National Library of Armenia for publishing a book devoted
to 120 year jubilee of Vahan Teryan. The book by Rafik Ghazaryan
named "How can I sing the memory of yours..." (in Armenian)
contains the chronology of the poet's life, bibliography of works
about him, also quotes about Teryan by his contemporaries.

Almost a year ago an Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan
attending English language training course within the framework
of NATO-sponsored partnership for peace program in Budapest, Hungary
was axed while asleep by an Azerbaijani fellow student. The trial
of the murderer is still not over and is constantly being postponed.

Budapest. Because of that the budapest.sumgait.info
web site has been launched to provide more information on the case
both for journalists and general public.
