From: DennisWerk@aol.com Date: Mon, 21 Jul 1997 09:10:33 -0400 (EDT)   Since you changed the sender info to individual names I find it much harder to sort my junk mail from stuff I want to read. Now it all looks like junk mail because I can't recognize the sender. Remember the old saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it" Dennis

The following is my impression. There were 3 main points but I wouldn't say 'controversy' but mostly misunderstanding about how the organization is set up.   1. Observations were made that since a quorem was not present, that no official business could be conducted and that the 'meeting' was pointless. It was stated that the elected board members make the decisions and that the membership meeting was a way members could suggest to the board what they desire. But the minutes and treasurer's report was accepted by a vote of members present. Evidently there is a provision in the by-laws to provide the proceedure. Someone mentioned that in their chapter a quorem was the members present. ATOS stated that that was fine and dandy but did not have anything to do with the national by-laws; chapters are free to write their by-laws and conduct their business however they choose. (This entire discussion was simply ignorance of the ATOS organization and structure. If they had read the by-laws they would know how it worked.) The board members said that if the membership didn't like the structure, they are free to change it by voting in different members and changing the by-laws.   2. There were many people who suggested that the 'Pipes and Personalities' news letter be continues and perhaps improved. (Evidently there had been some movement to reduce or eliminate it.) most members present agreed that even if the annual dues had to be increased to cover the cost it was well worth it.   3. A San Francisco area chapter spoksman expressed discontent that the national organization had changed the rules about paying organists after they had already made some contracts--effectively making the changes retroactive. The national board said that no binding commitments had been made by the California group as far as ATOS was concerned because thay had not filed a finantial document with them whis evidently is viewed (by the national board) as the binding document. (Perhaps we'll hear more about this.)   just my impressions. -- Richard B. Ahlvin e-mail: rahlvin@magnolia.net

Remember the old saying "if it >ain't broke don't fix it" >Dennis   I would like to say just the opposite - I'm much happier with the poster's name in the "FROM:" field - finding out who wrote a posting took a lot of scanning through the header information (particularly since so many people don't sign their postings).   Dennis - Check out what Shirley said about an email program with filters. I use Eudora Light (free download from most shareware sites). If an email message reaches me with pipechat listed in the "reply to" field, it automatically gets moved into my "pipechat" folder/mailbox.   I have this set up for pipechat, piporg-l, EPS (a synthesizer list), and for mail from users of a local system that I administer. When I check my mail, all these get placed in the right folder/mailbox automatically! Saves a LOT of time. I've used Netscape's mail, Explorer's mail, MS Outlook, etc., but Eudora is *much* better (and easier).   Harry Martenas    
(back) Subject: NICHOLAS MARTIN in America From: "Terry Charles" <tcorgans@imsweb.net> Date: Mon, 21 Jul 1997 10:46:35 -0400 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   Nicholas Martin, Great Britains exciting theatre organist will make one concert appearance in the U.S. Saturday August 2 at 2 p.m. at the Kirk of Dunedin, Causeway at Bayshore Boulevards in Dunedin, Florida USA.   While his concert is essentially sold out, there are scattered seats available. If you're anywhere near the Florida West Coast, don't miss an opportunity to hear this superstar of the organ. Admission is $8.00 donation and all seating is reserved. Ticket information may be had at 813-733-5475.   Nick has concertized on the Kirk Organ Series, the "largest series of organ concerts in the world", for six seasons. In addition, he has made special one- date only appearances during the summer.   The 4/100 organ features full orchestra percussions and TWO concert grand pianos.   Come to Florida and hear its best kept organ secret!

From: snyder@skyenet.net (Clarice Jane Snyder) Date: Mon, 21 Jul 1997 13:22:39 -0500 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"   I have the Yamaha plug-in installed but this site didn't play even though the little plug-in-console controler came up. Yamaha is the best sounding one for organ music but I've noticed that it doesn't play at all the music sites. I really can't stand to go to an organ music site with any other player installed. The easy listening stuff sounds better with this one too. Anybody have suggestion for this?   Also see my Web page for an interesting midi organ link.   >Date: Sat, 12 Jul 1997 20:22:32 -0400 >From: nstarfil@mediaone.net (Stanley Lowkis) >X-Mailer: Mozilla 4.01 [en]C-MOENE (Win95; U) >To: clyde236@ici.net, pipechat@pipechat.org >Subject: A beautiful site > >This is the most beautiful and moving site I have visited. pipechat >consists of people >who love pipe organs.

(back) Subject: Tired From: Shirley <pnst@voicenet.com> Date: Mon, 21 Jul 1997 18:00:21 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"   Please, people, no more about what address shows up in your mail in the "From" line.   Pete has explained several times now that the software we are using is set up this way, and it is being looked into to see if it can be changed back or not. Please read any mail *thoroughly* that comes from the admin address.   Whether some of you like it or not, we've had more important things on our minds, like retaining seamless service for you, in spite of a threatening hurricane and Internet interruptions way beyond our control. We have done our best to communicate with you about the changes.... we can write, but we cannot make you read and understand them.... that is your responsibility as a subscriber.   I suppose it should be gratifying that the only thing a few of you can find to pick on is the "from" line.... It means the big important stuff is going well.   --Shirley, PipeChat Co-Owner

Is it possible to compromise and have 'PC' preceding the sender's name for PipeChat mail .. eg PC Karl W Keller   Cheers, Ronnie   On Tue 22 Jul, William E.
