Thanks! >Chuck Peery/Cincinnati     I had the same problem when I switched over to the digest format, so I contacted Pete. He didn't have that problem, so I figured it was something wrong with my machine or version of Netscape. (I tried to contact Erol's about it several times but NEVER got a response.) Apparently that is not the case.   I live with the situation by copying the entire digest into a new e-mail and then either reading it on the spot or sending it back to myself. The text wrap feature of Netscape e-mail seems to correct the problem.   It sure would be great if an easier solution could be found. Thanks, Chuck, for bringing up the topic.   Bob

(back) Subject: PIPECHAT Procedures --IMPORTANT PLEASE READ! From: PipeChat-Admin <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Thu, 17 Jul 1997 05:34:22 -0700 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"   Good morning everyone,   Greetings from Houston on what is the beginning of my summer travels.   It is important that each of us pays careful attention to instructions when trying to subscribe or unsubscribe. If there is a spelling error in the instructions you send to the server, or you separate say "PipeChat" into two words, the server will not be able to understand your command. Note: You do not need to add your name to the instructions, only supply what has been asked for in the admin memo I sent out (a copy is included below for your information).   A reminder that the NOMAIL function is no longer available. If you need to go to nomail please unsubscribe and then resubscribe when you return.   This software is very easy to operate as long as you read the instructions carefully.   In relation to the DIGEST. There have been a number of notes to the list about formating. This was on the old system, it should no longer apply with the new software. If you are still having trouble write to PipeChat Admin at mailto:admin@pipechat.org and we will attempt to help you -- DO NOT POST THESE PROBLEMS PUBLICLY TO THE LIST. It only serves to clog up peoples mail boxes with unnecessary clutter.   Well, enjoy your day! Happy PipeChatting!   Pete!     To "Subscribe" to PipeChat-L send email to:   requests@pipechat.org   saying:   subscribe pipechat   To "Subscribe" to "PipeChat DIGEST" send email to:   requests@pipechat.org   saying in the body of the email:   digest pipechat   NOTE: You do not need to subscribe to the list first, and then to the Digest, simply subscribe directly to the Digest.   To "Unsubscribe" send email to:   requests@pipechat.org   saying:   unsubscribe pipechat   NoMail:   The NoMail command is no longer available. You will need to simply unsubscribe from the list, and then resubscribe when you return.   If you have any administrative questions on the services available from the list please send them to:   admin@pipechat.org   stating your question or problem and we will get back to you within 24 hours.     "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" ======================================================= PipeChat-L--A discussion List re: pipe/digital organs and related topics Homepage: http://pw2.netcom.com/~pgpocock/PipeChat-L/ List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org Admin: mailto:admin@pipechat.org =======================================================

(back) Subject: Hang in there!!!! From: Shirley <pnst@voicenet.com> Date: Thu, 17 Jul 1997 10:04:55 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"   Dear List Members:   Our normally placid environment has been turned upside down.   I ask your patience while we work out the bugs of the new system. In the long run, the automation will be a great improvement for all of us. But for now, the transition has it's problems.   I ask that you all please read *thoroughly* the mail that Pete and Dave have sent through about the administration and workings of this list. Reading and understanding each one will greatly reduce the stress involved in relating to this list.   Yes, there are changes. Perhaps most obvious is the fact that "PipeChat-L" isn't showing up as the sender in your mail boxes. If you have a filtering system on your mail reader, that is worthwhile to use. On mine, I have set up a separate mailbox for each of the mailing lists I subscribe to, and the mail is routed to each one as it comes in. Makes it a lot easier. If you want help in using Filters, let me know. It is available on Eudora Pro and may also be available on the newest edition of the shareware version of Eudora.   Also, if you see something like this -- mailto:pnst@voicenet.com -- Some mail readers allow you to point your mouse to the address, the arrow changes into a pointing finger, and double click the mouse button. A blank new mail form with the address already on it will open. Try it on my address there, see if it works for you!   And folks, one thing I want you all to know: This past week, Pete, Dave and I have been spending inordinate amounts of time on the computer getting this automation together. It is a mammoth job, and involves a lot of domains that are out of our reach. And we're doing this for free.... all three of us... all for you, the subscribers.   Please hang in there with us.... believe me when I tell you, it hasn't been easy from our end, either.   But it will be worth all this effort in the long run. Honest.   The adventure continues. :)   --Shirley

From: David Scribner <david@blackiris.com> Date: Thu, 17 Jul 1997 11:49:28 -0500 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"   Dear List Members   In reply to Shirley's post of earlier this morning I want to give you an update. We have had mail bouncing all over the place. Of course with the new listserver set-up I was afraid that it was being caused here. However, after several hours of checking everything out I finally discovered that the problems have nothing to do with the new PipeChat setup.   The following is a message from NetStats, which reports problem with the Net.   ******************************************************************************** *********************** News   Thursday - July 17th, 1997   We just received this note from Sprintlink:   7/17/97 09:10 EDT   Hi,   We currently have 280 DS-3's down in our Washington DC relay site due to a fiber cut. Customers connect to our DC routers will experience routing instabilities and delays. We are working to resolve this problem...no ETR is available at this time. We will send a follow-up message to update this problem. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused. Thank you for your patience.   Ray, Sprintlink ------------------------------------------------------------------   Having DNS problems today? Well fear not (or fear) because you are not alone. Yesterday the "root nameservers" allowed themselves to be updated with corrupted .com and .net databases. The problem is being resolved and the servers are being fixed. ------------------------------------------------------------------ ******************************************************************************** ************************   Moist of the mail that bounced was to our digest subscribers. I am going to resend the digest later today but if for some reason you do not receive PipeChat Digest #2 dated 7/17/97 Please let me know privately and I will make sure you are sent a copy.   Sorry for all of the trouble but I just wanted to make sure everyone knew what was going on.   David Tech Support   ********************************** David Scribner Black Iris Consulting 4775 Balmoral Drive Pensacola, FL 32504-9174 850-478-9635 - Voice 850-476-0711 - Fax david@blackiris.com      
(back) Subject: Re: Jessye Norman From: Vernon Moeller <vernonm@ccsi.com> Date: Thu, 17 Jul 1997 10:08:18 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"   I find it hard to believe that anybody doesn't like Jessye's voice, *but* I think that perhaps what others don't like about her is the strange contortions she puts her mouth through when she sings. I also find the size of her mouth to be distracting - good thing she has nice-looking teeth, 'cuz they're right out there in front of God and everybody when she sings.   I've known of a couple of other vocalists who, like her, I can't stand to watch while they're singing, so I just close my eyes and think pleasant thoughts, which really helps me enjoy their singing all the more. These singers included the late Frank Fontaine ("Crazy Guggenheim" on the old Jackie Gleason Show) and Jim Nabors ("Gomer Pyle").   Just my opinions.   \/\/\      
(back) Subject: Filmed at Reuter? From: usd465@horizon.hit.net (Frank Johnson) Date: Fri, 18 Jul 1997 08:39:18 -0500 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"   I heard about "Carnival of Souls" on this list and thought I'd share what I had found about it.   Carnival of Souls Released in 1962 Running Time 80 minutes AMG Rating   MPAA Rating PG Director Herk Harvey Genre Supernatural, Drama, Horror, Thriller, Realism Warnings Questionable for Children Keywords ghost, accident, stalking, bridge Plot Lines Afterlife, Haunted (after near-death experience), Ghost, Monsters (zombies)   AMG PLOT SYNOPSIS: Actress Candace Hilgoss, whose cinematic career is sparse to the point of nonexistence, has earned cult status solely on the basis of this one-of-a-kind film. Hilgoss plays a young woman who is involved in an automobile accident, wherein her car plunges into a river. Some time later (we're never certain just how long), Candace emerges from the water, apparently completely unhurt. She doesn't stop to wonder what happened to her two travelling companions. She wanders into a church where she is appointed the new organist. She rents a room and is propositioned by a strange neighbor. She ambles to a spectral carnival, populated by the town's dead. And then her car is fished from the river; inside there are three bodies. Carnival of Souls was filmed in Lawrence, Kansas; the film's low budget and the unfamiliarity of its surroundings add to the eerie, unsettling quality that has compelled the film's disciples to experience the picture over and over again.     Cast Sidney Berger - John Linden Art Ellison - Minister Frances Feist - Landlady Herk Harvey - The Man Candace Hilligoss - Mary Henry Stan Levitt - Doctor Ted Adams Pamela Ballard Steve Boozer Cari Conboy Bill de Jarnette Tom McGinniss Dan Palmquist Lamy Sneegas       My son is in school at Kansas University and as a project for some class he had to build something. He chose to design and build a sounding pipe organ. Although the device did not work well, he received an excellent grade for having designed it. He went to the Reuter company and was greeted with a willingness on their part to help him find some parts. Thought It was nice to hear that they were available to help.     Frank Johnson (KA0API) leader/clarinet Spirit of New Orleans (http://www.hit.net/~usd465/) Dixieland jazz. Winfield, KS

(What a career)..but checkk out the organ in the flick when she is playing at it in front of the wiley old recotr....is that a Baldwin, or just borrowed from the cellar of the Notre Dame in Phantom??
