(back) Subject: The HTML problem - All Read, Please From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Sat, 28 Dec 2002 09:06:21 -0600   Folks   Following up on the discussion on the list, which was actually a bit "off-topic", over the last several days I have put together a page on the Web Site that will hopefully help members to set their email clients to send in Plain Text ONLY to the list. It may not have all the directions for all email clients but I think it covers the most prevalent email programs that are in use. I started collecting some of these instructions several months ago but the recent discussion finally caused me to put together this page. You will find the link to the page towards the bottom of this posting.   Although I did shudder a bit when Michael posted his note on Christmas Eve about the HTML problem I was also glad that someone other than the Administrators did a posting about it. Maybe, coming from a fellow list member, some of you are made more aware of the problems those members on the Digest have to deal with in reading mail from the list.   There is also one other problem with HTML and RTF (Rich Text Format) postings that has not been mentioned in the discussion over the last several days. That problem is the size of the emails that carry the HTML / RTF formatting. Those postings are over twice as large as a Plain Text posting so they fill up member's email inboxes much faster. They also cause the Digest to become much larger and to be sent out much more often. Because of this member's inboxes get filled and then mail to them starts to "bounce" Although, the rest of you don't have to deal with this problem of mailboxes being "over-quota", the Administrators have to. And as much as I hate to remove someone from the list because of bouncing mail there are times that I have to do that. The extra traffic on the Network gets a bit unbearable at times because of the bouncing mail.   The problem of these HTML / RTF postings has been discussed numerous times on the email list I belong to that deals with the list server software. As I think I mentioned in a post several days ago, the new version of the software is supposed to have automatic filtering capabilities to strip out the HTML / RTF formatting from the Digests. But that isn't available as of yet. The new version is in "Beta" test currently and the current "beta" doesn't have the capability in it.   Some of the other list administrators on the software list have come up with other means of dealing with the problem. One of them has written a "processor" for the server software that will reject any post that has anything other than Plain Text in it. Several other people have done away with Digest versions of their lists. Neither of these solutions are ones that I am comfortable with or would wish to impose on any of the lists that I run.   So until the new version of the list server software is release for "production" status I would ask that EVERYONE please take a look at your email sending set-up and see what you can do to send ONLY in Plain Text to the list. The information on the web page I have created has been gathered from and "stolen" <G> from various other web pages that are trying to deal with this same problem. it may not have answers for EVERY email program but I think it covers most of them. The AOL section only covers through version 7.0, I know that version 8.0 has been released but I have not been able to find any information about it as of yet.   Finally, I want to say THANK YOU to the suggest about making a financial contribution to help with the new software. And also thank those that have sent private emails offering to help. I appreciate the thought but I am not comfortable with having members help in that way. The best way you can help is to try to help by not sending except in Plain Text. I/we (Tim and I) do operate this list as our contribution to our community and are very glad to be able to provide this service. But also remember, we have limited time to deal with some of this and the less "bounced" mail I have to deal with on a daily basis the happier I am.   As some of you are aware, the PipeChat list is not the only email list I administer. So if you are on another list that is run from the PipeChat server, PLEASE use these same instructions for sending to those other lists. That will help alleviate the same problems on those lists.   I have saved the links to the new web pages for the end in the hopes that everyone will read all of the above. The new Plain Text page can be found at: http://www.pipechat.org/plaintext.html I have also set-up an Examples page showing what the problem is with formatted mail in the Digest. These examples have been taken from the last several days Digests and I have tried to keep the subject of them to the problem at hand. And by no means, am I trying to "pick on" or single out any members whose example I have used on that page. If one of your posts shows up on that page PLEASE don't be offended. The Examples page is at: http://www.pipechat.org/htmlexamples.html And the Plain Text page can be reached from the home page of the PipeChat web site.   Thank you for reading this long-winded "epistle" and Thank You for being a member of the PipeChat list.   Happy PipeChatting!!   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

(back) Subject: Wonderful Christmas Eve and Day From: "danielwh1" <danielwh1@ns.sympatico.ca> Date: Sat, 28 Dec 2002 11:55:47 -0400   I had the most beautiful Christmas this year. I woke up early Christmas Eve and finished up on many chores that needed = to be done. I went around through out the day visiting friends and went to Shelburne which is the next town to us to make some final Christmas Gift purchases and groceries, then we returned home and did a bit more visiting.and then went to my churches Christmas Eve Service at 7where I = run the sound system, It was a beautiful service even though no Pipe Organ can be found. Mom dad and I returned home around 8pm. We were home long enough to put the turkey in the ovenand I played my Pipe Organ, I never ever felt so wonderful in playing it, It seemed the Organ was speaking from the = heart. It was the wierdest feeling I ever had felt. Everything seemed so right = with it. We then went up to the Anglican church where they had an early = Christmas Eve Mass. This too was beautiful. From there we went visiting a friend of ours and his Family The man had a stroke 10 years ago and looks forward to our visits.From there we returned home to prepare the vegetables for Christmas Day Dinner. Mom and I after that went into my room and pigged = out on snack crackers , chips and dip, and grapes. We watched Christmas = Programs on the television and finally Midnight Mass on CH from The Cathedral of Christ the King in Hamilton On.that got over here around 2:30 am. We then retired to our beds. I woke up around 9:30 am Christmas Day and cooked the rest of the = Christmas Dinner. Proceeded to open our Gifts I got a new Tuner for my Organ , Its a new Korg tuner not sure the model, but its capable of doing more then my old Korg.also = got clothes etc.... Then had dinner , and rested , then again went visiting. A wonderful Christmas I had THe Pipe Organ never sounded so good. It seemed to make the meaning of Christmas show so much Stronger then I had ever felt, It seems to express things . I look forward to hearing others Christmas Pipe Organ stories Happy Holidays everyone Daniel       --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.

I could not find this feature to tell David about it, because it was right under my nose.   If you blindly reply to someone without checking, your post will still sometimes go out with the original poster's formatting. How my original post went out with gobbledygook this morning, with all my default settings to plain text, is a mystery only the Holy Trinity can solve.   I hope this is helpful to those of you with the latest Microsoft products.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com   =A0

How's this . . .   On the 23rd, after rehearsing with the trumpeter, the flautist, various soloists, and my own practice, the electonic stuff inside the organ that runs the pipes went "kaboom," a massive chord began to cipher (from First Nowell), and the organ died on the spot. Back to the Yamaha keyboard. The bells were under a balcony and could barely be heard. The choir chatted in back (waiting to process) and disturbed people. The trumpeter kid had not practiced all day. He made lots of mistakes. The boy soprano ran out the back door and hid. The second reader began to read without allowing the choir to sing inbetween. Soloists stood too far from the mikes. The pastor read the 9th lesson and launched into communion w/o "Break = Forth O Beauteous . . . " from the choir. A communion server put wine on the keyboard and it spilled. The choir began singing Stille Nacht; the congregation began vs 1 of = Silent Night simultaneously. Someone forget to raise the lights after SN so we could sing Hark. So we started Hark in the Dark. The rock musician who likes to play along with organ (this time the = Yamaha) made the carols rock when I wanted Kings College instead. The pastor forgot to put an offering in the bulletin and everyone left w/o dropping anything into the large baskets (too hard to dig out a wallet underneath winter coats). The rock pianist launched into Joy like a runaway freight train. It was chaos.   Besides that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?   P.S. The 1,000 luminaries surrounding the historic church were magical.   Merry Christmas to all and to all . . .   Robert Clooney
