(back) Subject: IRC chat From: "Lawrence W. Nevel" <lnwbpa@sunlink.net> Date: Tue, 28 Oct 1997 20:16:33 -0400   Hi Folks, I've been reading about the IRC chat sessions for almost a year now and have wanted desperately to join in but being a computer novice (and owning a MAC) I had no clue as to how to join the Mon./Fri. sessions. In the digest from yesterday, David Scribner kindly put information in layman's terms that I could understand. Thank you, David. I have found some of the Another Net sites. Maybe with some fumbling around I can figure out how to join this chatty group. If Orgman shows up you know I made it. Bruce, I understand your frustration. Not all of us are techno-wizards. I just learned about what chatting is all about this last week. Fortunately, it was a lot easier than the IRC chat lines. I can't help you as I only know MACs (a little). As a teacher of young children, I understand how important it is to assume that the learner knows nothing, and must be "walked" through the process with clear, concise simple directions. Yes, once you learn to do it, it is a simple task, but until you learn, it's like a foreign language. Hope to chat soon, Larry

Also included could be the schedulaed connection times. Then the nest time someone asks the question they could be politely directed to the web page...   Bruce  
(back) Subject: Re: IRC chat From: cremona84000@webtv.net (bruce cornely) Date: Wed, 29 Oct 1997 11:31:14 -0500   I had an experience with online chat on the Christian "Room" of WebTV's setup. Happened on to the 1PM Saturday game of Bible Trivia. Quite an hour; it was like playing Jeopardy at warp speed with a hundred contestants. It was fun, but when I was through I had to stand on my head in the corner and sing Taize chants backward for another hour. Needless to say, I haven't been back to that one. I will continue to be happy sitting in my automatic rocking chair, powered by a quiet water motor!   Bruce Cornely, organist (OHS & AGO) University United Methodist Church and Student Center Wicks ('56) 3/16r Gainesville Florida Dean, Gainesville Chapter AGO

And hopefully without the assumptions, omissions, lack of detail and mis-information so prevalent in most computer information documentation. Unfortunately, in the Internet world where the only information is on-line, there aren't any other references to consult. Therefore the online information must be encyclopedic to be of use…it generally isn't. At lease for commercial software you can generally play telephone tag for a few days and get an answer. On the Internet, you will get some smart-aleck responses, some flames, a whole bunch of "helpful" people who are totally wrong, and occasionally a tidbit of useful info! (Sorry, I'm also one of those 30 year experience computer professionals who find the current lack of discipline, standards etc. that are prevalent in the industry appalling. I used to be able to read and follow instructions but then there was Windows...where nothing is intuitive nor makes any sense.) Just my $.02 -- Richard B. Ahlvin

(back) Subject: Organs in Germany From: Vernon Moeller <vernonm@ccsi.com> Date: Wed, 29 Oct 1997 13:34:30 -0600   Greetings:   This question is one that will surely generate a bit of mail. My church is planning to send its adult choir on a 17-day tour of Germany, with emphasis on appearing in towns where there are large Methodist congregations. Needless to say, my first question was "How long can we stop over in Ireland?" I was born there, and I've been there once but 7 days wasn't enough.   Anyway, I do not know the itinerary yet, but I would like to know (1) which towns (having which churches with which organs) *you* think that I should ask to be included on our tour list. I realize that in some churches, they will probably say "Nobody but the organist touches that console," and I'll get a piano for our performance, but maybe that is not always the case.   Since we have friends who live in Stuttgart, we hope we can visit there. Are there any churches or organs there that we should not miss seeing and hearing?   Also, I presume our audiences will be mostly German folks, so can you make any recommendations as to what they'd like to hear from an amateur church choir. I'm sure we'll have some spirituals and some Rutter and some Mathias, all of which we do well, but I was wondering what the German folks like to hear from visiting choirs.   Finally, in a similar vein, what sort of organ music would the folks over there like to hear from a pretty good service organist?   Thanks in advance to all of you for what I'm sure will be some pretty creative and interesting answers.   \/\/\

For everyone's information I am reprinting it here.   David   **************************FORWARDED MESSAGE************************** The person (Jarrell Kautz) who made up the Theatre Organ Home Page and related pages has moved from Mississippi to Houston, Texas. The Home Pages remained on TV station WCBI equipment and are not being maintained.   Jarrell is working on acquiring the necessary internet equipment to own and maintain the web pages himself. This is a monumental job and will take time!   I correspond with Jarrell Kautz via e-mail several times a week and work with him on the installation of a 3/15 Wurlitzer which is going into a local auditorium! He is very concerned about the Home Page and wants to get it back on line as soon as possible!   ********************************** 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: Silent Movie From: usd465@horizon.hit.net (Frank Johnson) Date: Thu, 30 Oct 1997 00:07:52 -0600   My wife does accompanying at our local Methodist college....Southwestern College here in Winfield, Ks. A few days ago she noticed a poster advertising Alan Malaby would be doing a silent movie at 10 PM tonight (Oct. 29). I've know Alan for 30 years or more but had not heard him cue a movie for many years. He lives in Wichita and I understand does silents from time to time. He did an excellent job. There was a fairly good crowd and the college students were in awe of this event. I kept hearing comments like "Was that cool or what?" Having attended numerous silent presentations I couldn't help but smile at what they had never witnessed....an organist cueing a silent movie. The following appeared in our local paper.   SOUTHWESTERN TO MARK DRACULA'S 100TH BIRTHDAY   In anticipation of Halloween and the 100th birthday of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," Southwestern College will present a screening of F.W.Murnau's "Nosferatu" at 10 this evening in Richardson Auditorium. This 1922 silent film was the earliest cinematic representation of the famous vampire from Transylvanie. Live accompaniment by Wichita organist Alan Malaby will provide the voice for this 16mm film.   I goes on to tell about who sponsored the film etc.   An interesting bit about this movie is available at: http://www.bayside.net/users/spaceduck/nosferatu/           Frank R.
