(back) Subject: Re: Virus Attacks(off topic) From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Sat, 31 Aug 2002 15:59:38 EDT   Listers:   It would seem that Bill Gates is not only under attack by the US government, but his competitors such as Netscape. What they are really peaved about is his success. I think you'll find that this is not a random attack by a nut case, these are attacks on a person, to which we all must suffer from time to time. It seems that this is American business as usual. Go after success and try any way you can to slow them down. It's called ENVY a Capital Sin, and one of the seven most deadly. The less successful usually suffers from another deadly sin LAZINESS, or SLOTH. What's worse the unititiated have a habit of piling on and joining in. It's the same idea as taking a copy machine and making unauthorized copies of CD's and tapes and software. If you can't beat them cheat them. If the government wanted to stop viruses attacking PC's it could be a done deal tomorrow. It won't be done because Bill is a target, and you are inconvienced and the secondary target. I have a generally good idea who is set up to gain by this tactic and who is set up to be the loser. It's all too obvious to me. But never believe that this is a nut case doing this, it's too well planned and carried out. Besides, it's opened up a whole new industry, ANTI VIRUS. I wonder if Netscape or Apple/Mac have anything to do with this, or if Janet Reno knows who? Think about it. I wonder if they all don't own ANTI VIRUS stock shares. This would be a much bigger story than Martha or Enron. I wonder if anyone is really looking into this? Or is it considered off limits by the MEDIA? How about that?   Ron Severin  
(back) Subject: Music database??? From: "Charles Peery" <cepeery@earthlink.net> Date: Sat, 31 Aug 2002 16:08:01 -0400   Does anybody use a database program to keep track of their organ music?   Since I've been playing every Sunday for three years, I've bought a lot of new music, to add to what I already owned over the years. Now, my real problem is when I find out on Thursday night that the choir is doing a Sowerby anthem, and I know I have some Sowerby hidden away in anthologies... but where? I just had this vision of having it all on my laptop with searchable fields like the composer, season, key, hymn tune, keyword from Scripture, last date played, etc.   The larger part of my professional life was spent as a choir director. The UMIS computer package for the United Methodist church had an anthem module which we used all the time, and it had all of these components, so I didn't just invent the idea myself.   I'm on a Mac, so.... don't yell at me.   Chuck Peery Cincinnati

Check some of the software archives like info-mac. I know there are database set-ups for cataloging CD's so there might be one for your purposes. Or you might be able to adapt one of the CD catalog databases for your use.   I'm sure there are also Windows versions for those people not using a MAC.   David

They simply took a = Brindley & Foster 16ft Bourdon and tacked three-ply sheets to the upper = lip of the pipes, thus lowering the lip effectively. The result was = about the best Quintaton I ever came across!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK      
(back) Subject: Re: Virus Attacks(off topic) From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Sat, 31 Aug 2002 15:42:12 -0500   Ron   You are so far out in left field about this - i don't buy any conspiracy theory especially by Netscape, Apple/Mac and/or the produces of Anti-Virus software.   The plain simple truth is that Microsoft leaves so many wide open holes in their software that hackers take delight in exploiting them! And the hackers are mainly peaved at the tactics of M$ in trying to dominate the computer world with some of their so-so software. And no the government couldn't stop virus attacks tomorrow! Government computers are just as likely to be affected by these viruses as any of the rest of are. And these viruses don't just hit computers in the United States - they run rampant all over the world!!   Your whole post was so far out in left field that i couldn't allow it to pass without a response. Some of us have also been in the computer field for many, many years and used the Internet before you probably ever heard of it.   I hope this post puts an end to this silly thread that you are trying to start since it is really WAY OFF TOPIC. Most of the discussion up until this point has had some merit for people using the Net and this mailing list but this is so far out there that it needs to stop NOW!   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

(back) Subject: Music database software From: "Hugh Drogemuller" <hdrogemuller@sympatico.ca> Date: Sat, 31 Aug 2002 17:12:08 -0400     When I need to find software I go to http://downloads-zdnet.com.com/2001-20-0.html and in the case in point, type in "database software for music titles" and =   there are all sorts of "hits". You can enter the "platform" that you need it for. Some appear to be free..   Good luck,   HD    
(back) Subject: All Read!! - VIRUS Problems From: "David Baker" <dbaker@lawyers.com> Date: Sat, 31 Aug 2002 17:20:37 -0400   As another viewpoint on the Mac virus issue, I suggest that Windows = viruses will never be a problem for Macs because a Windows "executable file" = (i.e., a file that does something when you open it, such as a word processing program) can not run on a Mac. A virus is simply a malicious program. That's why, for example, Word for Windows will not run on a Mac. You have to get Word for Mac. There definitely ARE Mac viruses and it is = definitely a good thing to have an anti-virus program. But a Windows virus will = never harm a Mac. The fact that they arrive via Internet Explorer or Outlook, = or some such, doesn't matter; Windows programs won't run on Macs, and vice versa. -- David G. Baker

From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sat, 31 Aug 2002 17:03:03 -0500   I would agree with David Carter that Excel is probably your best means of starting a database. I started one of my organ music by selection, with tabs for name, composer, volume found, if a piece was particularly appropriate for a certain season, and stuff like that. Later you can sort by whichever topic you like.   I never got to finish the project - too much music, too little time.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

Quite easy, and super flexible. = Don't forget to assign a column for "tr + perc", "opt. cello" or "congas" and suchlike. But there's tons of room.   Alan
