First, TWO (count them!) local ISP providers came to our little town of 400 souls almost simultaneously; second, the long distance tariff on the phone service to several surrounding larger towns disappeared (they became local calls for us!) and thirdly, we set up a broadband Satellite ISP at home with a wireless link to the shop computer network. Problem solved with several "back-up" solutions available.   But, that's our story. It may not be the story of others, who, by their being located in the Hinterlands, are forced to pay costs which many others don't even realize that folks are saddled with.   And I can attest: it really DOES make a difference. On average, I was paying $150.00 a month in long distance charges due to my Internet usage!! I'm glad those days are behind us.   Faithfully,   Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

(back) Subject: re (sorta): "Tim's fireside chat" From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Fri, 26 Oct 2001 21:07:44 -0500   Hello again, dear Pipechatters.   As an addendum to David's Admin post this evening, I offer the following:   My main reason for taking the tone I did was simple.   I was *purposely* overly loud and rude -- in the hope that such a message might succeed, where many past (and much more civil) reminders of List Guidelines (public and private) have failed.   We'll all see over the coming weeks and months if my hypothesis proves itself out.   One thing is certain -- I seem to have captured everyone's attention...! <LOL>   I truly hope that the majority of Listmembership will forgive me (us?) = this experiment in List Administration. Also, I hope you all will understand that I, personally, value the membership and contributions of EVERY Pipechat Listmember. It is indeed a privilege to help run Pipechat -- one I am very thankful for -- and one I take very seriously.   Thank you all -- each one of you -- for the moment of thought I hope you might now experience each time you reach for the <send> button. If we all work together, this List will indeed be a better place for ALL of us.   and... THAT is the "simple reason": To attempt to make Pipechat a better place for each one of us.   Most sincerely,   Tim Bovard Pipechat Co-Admin <tmbovard@earthlink.net> <tmbovard@arkansas.net>   PS -- the twice-weekly Pipechat IRC session is now in progress. (check the website for details, if you haven't ever joined us) I'll be there shortly -- y'all are cordially invited to come on in and tell me directly ~whatever~ you wanna...! (Hope y'all don't hate me *too much* now...<G>)
