They convert between analog voltages and binary numbers. = They deal in time series of values, and they do it in real time.   A modem converts between analog and digital, too, sort of. But it's = something else altogether. It encodes a bit stream as "sounds" in the = telephony bandwidth that can be sent through the telephone network to = another modem, which converts it back to a bit stream. What the bit = stream itself represents is neither here nor there. It can represent this = email. If it happens to represent sound, it's not the same sound that = goes over the phone line, and it's not transmitted in real time.   By the way, if the modem happens to be implemented digitally, then it = first converts the bit stream to a digital time series representing the = sound that will be transmitted over the phone. Then, there's a final = stage that converts the digital time series to analog voltages = representing the same sound. Guess what that stage is -- a codec!   Hope I haven't confused you further.   Dick

(back) Subject: Hammond for Practice From: "Cindy Adams" <piperheaven@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 1 Apr 2001 20:38:15 -0700 (PDT)   Hi!   I am considering an organ listed in the paper recently. Here are the facts:   Hammond-- 12-15 years old, just had serviced (not sure what this involved) No problems...2 manuals, 25 full pedals (which is what I wanted for practicing)   Pull-out rhythm section was added   Grandmother bought it new...$1800.00 neg. (g.mother now deceased)   What do ya'll think of this? What questions do I need to ask the seller?   My husband is an artist and sometimes barters with folks (artwork instead of cash) and he said he would try to get it for artwork. Anyway, is that a good price?   Thanks for any advice.   Cindy     __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Get email at your own domain with Yahoo!

(back) Subject: Flenthrop For Sale From: "Bob North" <bnorth@intergate.ca> Date: Mon, 02 Apr 2001 01:00:24 -0700   St. Mark's Cathedral in Seattle announced tonight that it has decided to sell its Flenthrop organ, damaged recently in the 6.8 earthquake that hit the Greater Seattle area. Roger Sherman, host of the Organ Loft program, heard on KING-FM in Seattle, made this major announcement on his radio program. Repairs to the organ have been stopped. The organ is to be replaced with an electronic instrument, with MIDI, and Hammond B-3 sound The sale should help the Cathedral retire its debt still owed on = the organ, built in 1965, and allow for the purchase of new carpets to cover the cold stone floor. Also planned is the purchase of a new public = address system so the new Rector's voice could be heard. A new music program is also being planned and the future of the 40 year old tradition of Compline =   Service, with its male choir, is in doubt.   Congrats to Roger Sherman and the crew of the "Organ Loft" for a spectactular program, which would only be possible on THIS day of the year
