(back) Subject: UK Value of a Compton electronic From: David Neal <david@neal.u-net.com> Date: Thu, 11 Sep 1997 19:44:20 +0100   Friends:   A local church has a two manual Compton electronic which is very reminiscent of one my school had in the 70's.   It is very 'basic' sounding, and I think they are getting frustrated with it. Now, hold your breath... their organist wants "one of those new keyboards ... they have great organ sounds these days". Please don't say anything, I'm only quoting him ;-)   The question is how much is it worth? ... don't forget I'm in the UK. I 'feel' that the Hammond tone cabinet they have an extension speaker might be worth more!   BTW, if it is the same technology as the one I played at school, the tone generation was very innovative ... but that's another story.   TIA   David N. =============================================================== David J Neal, Wrexham, Wales, UK home: david@neal.u-net.com work: dneal@yale.ac.uk ===============================================================  
(back) Subject: AnotherNet From: Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> Date: Thu, 11 Sep 1997 15:07:36 -0400   To all IRC #PipeChatters on Anothernet.   Shirley sent me this important piece of information that she culled from Anothernet's home page.   In her inimitable expression - Geez!     >Important Notice: Due to a configuration change at the providers we use >to host the servers, port 7000 will no longer connect users to >AnotherNet. To connect to the network, use ports 6667 or 7010. We >originally chose port 7001 to be the port to replace 7000, but we will >be unable to use that port as well. 6667 and 7010 are the open ports >now. > >Thought you might like to know. > > --Shirley   For anyone trying to log in to #PipeChat IRC tomorrow evening this might be useful to know!     Bob ...   Universities are places of knowledge. The freshman each bring a little in with them, and the seniors take none away, so knowledge accumulates.     History books which contain no lies are extremely dull.  
(back) Subject: Re: War march of the Priests From: DudelK@aol.com Date: Thu, 11 Sep 1997 18:58:31 -0400 (EDT)   Probably happened the Sunday the organist went out for a smoke during the sermon and didn't realize that the visiting cleric was given to 5-minute homilies rather than the usual 20 minutes and thus missed the cue for the offertoire. The retiring procession was turned into a war march by the clergy to the organ gallery ...... or something like that ...... :)  
(back) Subject: Re: Organ Music in Sydney - SEPTEMBER From: ManderUSA@aol.com Date: Thu, 11 Sep 1997 22:49:25 -0400 (EDT)   In a message dated 97-09-10 08:21:06 EDT, you write:   << Apologies if this appears all bizarrely typeset - nothing I do seems to work! >>   Not at all on my computer. It is all quite neat and well laid out. The only one thing that might not be as you intended it is the double line between items, which is (consistently) a bit longer than the width available, and so doubles on to the next line for a very short bit, but that too looks fine. Now, what can you do about the distance between here and Sydney?   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler N. P. Mander, Ltd. - U. S. A.
