I have solid state amateur radio equipment here that is far older than that and still working reliably.   I replaced an ailing electro-mechanical system in our 1966 pipe organ with a solid state system 12 years ago. I have now advanced from frequent cleaning of stop switch contacts and searching for dumb notes and "feed through" from one stop to another, to just playing the organ. It has not missed a beat. The problem of obsolescence of solid state devices (ICs) was guarded against by buying plenty of replacements and storing them in the organ. At about $1 each buying a significant number of these was no problem. The stock is untouched. No replacements so far.   One of the big changes in solid state devices is in the price which has tumbled over the years. It would seem to me that as technology improves, prices will continue to go down, and replacement of the solid state action if and when it became necessary could be quite affordable.   Bob Elms.   >Andres Gunther >agunther@cantv.net > >Sorry- I am this "someone" :)...

It's served in "proper" company in demi-cups with real cream and sugar. The rest of us just take it in normal sized cups, but cream and sugar is a must. So, Starbucks and their imitators are finally catching up with the deep South in this wonderful tradition. Keep your eyes focused. If you can't, it's "coffee time." F. Richard Burt Dorian Organs ..  
(back) Subject: Re: Food for thought (really!) From: "Margo Dillard" <dillardm@airmail.net> Date: Wed, 22 Oct 2003 07:23:48 -0500   YES - I like coffee - good ole fashioned coffee. No sugar, no creamer, no flavorings of any kind, no bizarre coffee from beans that were fertilized by the caca of yaks who only ate leaves from the boola-boola tree on the south side of some mountain in Tibet, etc., etc., etc. Just COFFEE - with caffeine, please!   Hence, I do not patronize Starbucks and their various clones.

Just because I like mixed drinks doesn't mean I don't like = _good_ drink as a basis! In fact, a mixed drink _SHOULD_ be composed of premium ingredients if it is to be excellent and enjoyable.   I learned to drink coffee at my mother's knee and that is where I learned = my fondness for coffee with milk and sugar, since that's how she drank it. = For many foolish years, though, I prefered soda pop to coffee.

And if I COUD "elaborate", YES. And three years ago I was on top of such things (not technically, nor musically, but only as "Parish Administrator." For health reasons I'm no longer "in the loop" at all. I think the problems are not related to tuning that all. I hear a cypher now and then. And I heard the phrase "leaky bellows" a week or two ago. I'm sure it will be dealt with (but, nowadays, not by anybody under my direction or even my phone call). I'm delighted to have = confidence that if our man allegedly on the job at the moment does not come through = we can call on (my esteemed friend far beyond our tiny needs) Sebastian Gluck (of this list), whom I will recommend most highly to ANYone). I speak quite seriously, and envy anyone sensible enough to engage him for = anything.   Alan

(back) Subject: Remote keys From: "John Foss" <harfo32@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2003 09:12:53 +0100 (BST)   Dear List and Colin Sorry my post re Thingummybob by Percy Whitlock (Scherzo in G flat from 5 short pieces?) was open to misinterpretation. I did not intend to suggest for one moment that you couldn't play it in G flat, A double flat, or even F sharp major if it comes to that! It was a question of key sensibility. I think two of the reasons composers write in the remote keys is 1) because, like Franck and Beethoven, their sense of key is so highly developed and their musical powers so far beyond those of us ordinary mortals that "es muss sein." I think Percy Whitlock wrote this charming piece of flan-flan in G flat because it is actually easier to play up to speed in this key - it falls more neatly beneath the fingers. Maybe he also had in mind the overall relationship of keys within the group, searching for tonal variety. Alfred Hollins, had, I think, the same intention with the E major "A song of Sunshine", with its preponderance of black notes - it does make it easier to play at his recommended metronome marking once you have learnt it.   John Foss     =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D www.johnfoss.gr http://groups.yahoo.com/group/orgofftop/ Topics of the week : A perfect Ending 50 years ago   ________________________________________________________________________ Want to chat instantly with your online friends?
