(back) Subject: Re: Vintage Wurlitzer From: FireAlarmz <FireAlarmz@aol.com> Date: Fri, 1 May 1998 19:27:18 EDT   << I have no idea what the H stands for>>   "H" stood for "Hammond organ model." For one thing, the Hammonds had no audio above 6KHz (except key clicks) so the "H-model" Leslies cut off audio above that point.   Also, I think (am not sure) the "H models" had B+ generated within the Leslie for the organ's use.   Bill Miller

(back) Subject: ADMIN. NOTE: SERVER BACK ONLINE From: Aministrator <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Sat, 2 May 1998 16:38:40 -0500   Folks   Soryy about the lack of connections to the list and the IRC server over the last day. I was travelling and discovered that there were problems last night so I reset all the servers when I got home this afternoon. Basically, there was a major power outage, more than the backup power supplies could cover, that caused the problems.   If you sent a post to the list and don't see it within the next 24 hours please send it again but hopefully any posts to the list will not be lost.   David   **************************************** David Scribner Co-Owner / Technical Administrator PipeChat   850-478-9635 david@blackiris.com

(back) Subject: Municipal Auditorium to be destroyed X-posted From: " W. Scarboro" <scarboro@digital.net> Date: Fri, 1 May 1998 13:23:40 -0400     Hello,     Those of you on the Piporg-l list did not recive a message and letter written by Judy Ollikkala about the vote by the city council of Worcester, MA to turn the War Memorial Auditorium into a "Kiddy" Courthouse. According to her letter, the remodling will begin this summer. Most certainly the auditorium's W.W. Kimball organ in mint condition will be removed, and an important building will be lost. Judy can fill you in on more. I am suggesting that Judy provide us with the addresses for the City government and that we all let them know how important the organ, and the building is to the organ and historic building community. Judy had already sent a letter to the local newspaper about the situation, and I hope it will raise local support to save the organ and the building before it is too late. We have already lost so many other buildings and organs of this type. let us save this one before it is changed forever.   The city of Worcester has already made this mistake before when they remodled the Historic Mechanics hall. They spent tons of money to put it all back and restore its 1860's Hook organ. We should not let them make the same mistake again. I urge your support in this matter. Thank you!   Sincerely,   Will Scarboro   **************************************************** Will Scarboro, Organ Historian (In Training) Organist, Pineda Presbyterian Church, Melbourne, Florida U.S.A 1996 OHS E.

Did anyone else have this problem??, or was it only me??   Funny thing is, I could connect to other irc channel servers (or whatever they are called.) Too bad :( I had my munchies all ready for any evening of conversation. Hope you all had a good evening,   Ruth    
(back) Subject: Municipal Auditorium to be destroyed X-posted From: "Judy A. Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Sat, 2 May 1998 20:13:57 -0400   I would like to clarify Will Scarboro's posting. The 1933 Kimball organ remains intact within the Worcester War Memorial Auditorium and it is not known at this time what will become of it. Awareness of this organ and its importance because of its size, value, period, and the fact that it is unaltered, is crucial in the attempt to motivate the city fathers and the AUD trustees to preserve both the organ and the building. I posted the addresses to write to, in case they were lost, here they are again.   City Manager Thomas Hoover, City Hall, 455 Main St. Worcester MA 01608 Letters to the Editor, Telegram & Gazette, P. O. Box 15012, Worcester MA 01615-0012   Many thanks for your concerns. Judy Ollikkala e-mail 71431-2534@compuserve.com

Hierfur the necessary screws are beige.   That translation page on the web is pretty cool! Now, it didn't get every word, but I think we've got the gist. Were there beige screws with the package?   Ken Sybesma        
(back) Subject: Re: computer translation (was: HELP!!!!!) From: giwro@juno.com (Jonathan M Orwig) Date: Sat, 2 May 1998 18:16:32 -0700   Try some German Chorale titles and see what you get - it really is quite funny for some of them:   Christ lag in todesbanden = Christian was situated in death-bound Alle menschen müssen sterben = all humans must die Das alte jahr vergangen ist = The old year passed Nun komm, der heiden heiland = now comes, the heath's welfare and   Not perfect, but it helps get the idea. I've been using it to translate some liner notes from LP and CD covers. The verbs often end up in the wrong spot, and it struggles with idioms (usually translates them word-for-word, and the meaning is lost) but I can usually fill in the gaps myself.   **************** Jonathan Orwig Minister of Music - Bethany Church, Redlands, CA for new Organ, Keyboard & Choral Music visit Evensong Music at: http://members.aol.com/Evnsong/pgone.html   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

(back) Subject: Manners & Lists From: Ruth <theraven@istar.ca> Date: Sat, 2 May 1998 22:47:00 -0400   Post From: gregory@mke.earthreach.com   Maybe with a new list, designed for those who are always bitter and complaining, those of us on piporg & pipehat will not need to use the delete key so often!     Reply from Ruth.   That is not really fair, I have read flaming and accusations that were directed towards some pretty innocent comments. Isn't that what a list is all about, to make comments and give opinions, and for those who do not like these, the delete key is there. If anyone is so very upset at a specific posting then: Use the Delete Key---Don't Flame, Don't Shout, Don't Insult..Delete instead. Otherwise, just post a non offensive reply and disagree "maturely". Besides, It is not fair to say that the new list is designed for those who are always bitter. I bet that this is not true purpose of the new list-owner's reason for having a list.   Ruth

I could not connect after several tries, at different times, between 10:30 and 11:00 PM   I am never sure if my ISP had connect problems, ormy old system just couldn't do it last night.   You can answer me privately to save bandwidth, unless this is a general problem for all.   TIA Dave McPeak
