(back) Subject: Re: Admin Posting: Some Changes at PipeChat - Please read From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Mon, 28 Aug 2000 05:55:23 -0500   Dear Fellow PipeChatters,   I, for one, am sorry to see Peter leaving as one of the Administrators of this list. Since Peter was the founder of the list (with Shirley) almost 4 years ago, I am sure that it wasn't an easy decision for him to make this change. On behalf of all of us, I would like to thank him for establishing PipeChat and for all of his work over the past years in keeping it going. It isn't always easy to administer one of these lists -- there are periods where it takes much time and energy.   I do wish him well in the new direction that his life is taking and I hope, as I am sure all of you also do, that all of God's blessings will go with him in all of his future endeavors.   It seems that this is a time of many changes going on that will be affecting the list. First of all, I want to announce that I have asked Tim Bovard to Co-Administer the list with me, and he has consented to do this job. Many of you will know Tim, as he posts here regularly. I hope all of you will welcome him to this new position and will give him your complete cooperation as you do for me. Hopefully, neither he nor I will have to do much in the way of doing Administration ALL READ postings! As always, both of us can be reached at the normal Administration address of <admin@pipechat.org>   Actually, I would like to compliment all of you, since there really aren't many way off-topic posts that we have to deal with as Administrators. Once in a while we do seem to venture into some topic that causes many problems ... but fortunately, those happen very infrequently. I have to thank all of you as list members for this.   There are some other changes going on with the list in this coming week. I will be writing more about them over the next several days, since they will affect everyone. As some of you already know, I am moving from Pensacola, Florida to Little Rock, AR. Because of this, there might be some temporary outages of the list during this coming week. I am still working out details of the move of the servers from my house here to the new house in Little Rock. As the details get worked out I will be doing some very important postings about them. Please be attentive to these postings as they come along and bear with us while the changes are made. It is our intention to make the move of the servers etc. with as little disruption of service as is possible.   Again, and in closing, I want to thank Peter for all of his dedication to this list. We all would not be here today if it were not for his and Shirley's efforts, and I hope we all will continue to appreciate their work as we all move into the future.   David **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org 850-478-9635 mailto:david@blackiris.com

(back) Subject: ALL READ - Politics on the List From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Mon, 28 Aug 2000 07:32:32 -0500   Folks,   I have had several complaints about some of the signature lines that have been appearing on this list. I know that people have some strong feelings about the upcoming election HOWEVER, these tag lines DO NOT belong on a list such as this. The two areas that seem to raise problems the most are either politics or religion. Please stop using any tag-lines/signatures either for or against any candidate. And this includes any references to "No New Texans"   Thanks for your cooperation.   David **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org 850-478-9635 mailto:david@blackiris.com

After a visit =   from David, Tim and Sandlawn to Notre Dame - my other half's brother came for a visit (yep the same day Tim) from New York. So tour guide Hanna I became.

The one you heard in Boston = is not the only Harsh on hear.   The Mother Church A-S: I have heard this organ several times. I don't = know what to blame but this organ never seems to roar like you think over 200 ranks would. I agree with Malcomb where he said the scaling seems thin. I =   personally think this organ is voiced on the 'discreet' side, perhaps = that's the way the Christ Scientists like it - who knows.   On the Favorite Organ list, I have to list the Skinner at Old South as a = tie with The Advent A-S.

I have removed 2 junker instruments out here - saving what was rebuildable and taking the rest to the dump.   We are rebuilding our 1972 Swain & Kates at St. Peter's Episcopal, Redwood City, CA.

We have funds available. Currently 13 ranks, we are adding a Viola Pomposa (rebuilt from a 1946 Moller Gamba) and an Oboe - Schalmey, plus making specification changes. We have other available pipework and expansion room in the console, but I need chests.   Thanks Randy   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of     Facts about this organ from an organ man who inspected it about five years ago.   It is NOT a Moller Organ.
