Have you tried ravelry?
Search results for [basic gloves](http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#query=basic gloves) and for fingerless, just don't do the fingers. Works for me.
If you want really basic fingerless, knit along with Kelley's Mitten Class and stop when it's as long as you want...you won't even need a pattern.
Pattern Central, there was another thread that said the original owner was setting up a new site and putting all the links there. I haven't used it much in a long time, with no pictures for the different patterns I often didn't know if it was something I even wanted to bother looking at. Still, I hope the new site is operational soon.
