(back) Subject: Ooops, Sorry! From: "Chris Johns" <Chris_Johns@gmx.de> Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2000 13:30:59 +0100   Dear PipeChatters,   Something appears to have gone wrong with my auto-reply function while I = was away last week, which may have led to you all being bombarded by messages from my account. I didn't unsubscribe from PipeChat while I was away, because I wanted to follow our anonymous friend's comments on liturgical organ playing. Is there an archive somewhere, where I can look these up? = If not, could the list administrators possibly forward copies of any = discussion there may have been in the meantime?   Best wishes   Chris Johns Frankenstrasse 5, D-49082 Osnabrueck Tel/Fax +49 (0)541 528 2568 EMail: Chris_Johns@gmx.de

Was: Help With Music From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2000 06:35:53 -0600   Carl and the rest of the list   There are certain words, "Help" being one of them, that if they appear in the Subject line, especially at the beginning of the Subject line or the first line of a posting will trigger the list server to not distribute that message to the whole list. In the case of "Help", the list server is thinking that the person is asking for assistance with something having to do with subscribing or unsubscribing and therefore doesn't allow the posting to go to the whole list. This is to keep unnecessary mail from filling up everyone's mailboxes.   Other words that trigger the processor include: "Vacation", "Out of the Office", "important message", "subscribe", "unsubscribe", along with a host of others. The processor will "bounce" these messages so as not to fill up the list with unnecessary mail. And some of these also keep the list from getting spam and/or viruses.   Recently, we had a member go on holiday and had an autoresponder message replying to his mail that got sent to the list. Since that subject line started with some German text the processors didn't bounce those messages and everyone got a whole slew of them until I could add the text from the subject line to the list of prohibited words. Once I did that the messages from that person's autoresponder quit going to everyone.   I hope this makes sense to you. These are set-up to "protect" the list from extraneous messages appearing in everyone's mailboxes.   Happy PipeChatting   David   >I guess I'm supposed to ask for "assistance," not 'elp. >[Big Snip] >I've never had this happen before, and since I wasn't aware this could be = a >problem, there must be other liszters that aren't aware of this either. = If >so, this is for you, too. > >And the original question still stands. > >And to the administrators: > >I'd like to express my thanks and appreciation for all the work you put = in >running this liszt; I would never have guessed there are [what would you >call them? algorithms? sub-routines? macros?] things in place to >automatically protect our beloved liszt from crashing due to accidental, = or >maybe less-than-benign actions like this one.

(back) Subject: Re: Polite Question ? From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2000 14:37:40 EST   Hi Mo:   You might want to check out the Viscount Jubileum 161. It's easily picked up and moved single keyboard instrument w/o a pedalboard. The digital voices are decent, and may fit your requirements. It sells for under $2,000. it has a transposer, reverb, alternate voicing, and a bass coupler. You might find a used one for even less. It weighs 45 Kg. It has 18 stops, perfect for a traveling organ.   I hope this is a useful suggestion.   Ron Severin

(back) Subject: Re: Polite Question ? From: <Cremona502@cs.com> Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2000 16:11:21 EST   I would suggest contacting Copeman-Hart. They are the only builder of digital instruments who actually do custom work, building portatives, and = the like. I would think you would be able to get a one or two manual instrument with just a few essential stops, no pistons, bells or whistles, =   that would be contained in one portable cabinet easily moveable by two = people.   Best of luck.   Bruce . . .
