No, sorry, it's still there, but it seems that you need to login to see it:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sindict/message/387
But if I understand the last message correctly, they are about to be deleted (lit. 'terminated') and we have a couple of months (two have already passed) to save what we need:

To make it easier for the beginners and the host (Lúthien would have to explain about the dialogues) I opted to change this one sentence: Haeron i ven gîn to avoid the predicative adjective.

I thought to supercede it with: You walk a long way. - Padag ven ann.

EDIT: I changed the position of the sentence as well to give the conversation a more natural flow,..


Guilin: "Mae govannen, Lindir."
Lindir: "Mae govannen mellon nîn."
Guilin: "Padog na mbar gîn?"
Lindir: "Mae. Padon i ven thent."
Guilin: "Renion n' amrûn, na Thranduil na Daur-nu-Fuin"
Lindir: "Padog ven and. Lend vaer, Guilin."
Guilin:"Cuio vae, Lindir!"


Guilin: "Well met, Lindir."
Lindir: "Well met my friend."
Guilin: "Are you walking home?"
Lindir: "Yes. I am walking the short road."
Guilin: "I wander eastward (towards the east), to Thranduil at Mirkwood."
Lindir: "You walk a long way. A good journey, Guilin."
Guilin:"Fare well, Lindir!"

Padag

*Padog; and also, if you use ann, it would be consistent to use lenn instead of lend.

Thank you for the catches, Aran.

Suilad y'all -
the workshop went fine. There were about 14 participants, and they seem to have enjoyed it.
I uploaded the presentation I used. You can find the original keynote presentation here (not sure if you can view that on a windows pc), but I put an exported powerpoint version here (it might look a bit different than the original one).
