Billings classic early American piece, "The Lord is Risen." It may be called "Easter Hymn" or Anthem; I can't recall, but it's a nice stirring piece in that fuguing style which he handled so masterfully.   Dennis Steckley   Every gun that is made and every warship that is launched, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed--Dwight Eisenhower

Turntables use SYNCHRONOUS motors that are specifically designed to run at the given speed. Putting such a motor on a "dimmer" will cause overheating, premature motor failure and possibly a fire !     Douglas A.

Can anyone suggest an Easter anthem for choir and one, or even better, 2 trumpets?   Was it absolutely necessary to quote the entire digest? Please, a little courtesy!   Dennis Goward

(back) Subject: New Virus / Worm - Administrator's Topic ONLY! From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2004 21:15:44 -0600   Folks   As you may be aware there was a new virus/worm released yesterday that is flooding the Internet. Although I have not received many copies of it personally due to various filters on my mail server the list has been receiving way too many copies that end up in the "Bounced Mail", I think there have been about 50 copies so far today. I have a feeling that the machines of some members of the list have been infected although I have no idea of whose machines.   If you have received any email over the last couple of days with any sort of attachment and you haven't trashed that attachment immediately there is a possibility that your machine might be infected. There are removal tools available to deal with this virus if your machine is infected. Symantec has a page on it's Security Response site at http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.novarg.a@mm.htm= l which tells about the virus/worm and has a tool for removing it if your computer is infected. If you are running any flavor of Windows and don't have an Anti-Virus program installed you might want to go to this page and read about it and double check your machine. if you have an anti-virus program, which EVERYONE that uses the Internet should have, make sure your Virus Definitions are up to date.   BTW, this virus ONLY affects machine running versions of Microsoft Windows, MAC and UNIX, of whatever flavor, users are not affected by it.   Finally, PLEASE practice "safe computing" - if you receive a file from someone, even someone that you know, and aren't expecting it DO NOT open it. Check with the person that "supposedly" sent it to make sure that they did send you something. Many of these viruses/worms "fake" the identity of the sender from the address book of the infected computer so it is very possible that the "supposed" sender never actually sent you anything.   REMEMBER, it is not a topic for Discussion on the list. Only Tim or I can post anything about viruses. If you have any questions or need any help please feel free to write ME at the Administration address this email is being sent from.   Sorry for the interruption but I felt this was important enough for me to do a posting about it. One of the characteristics of this virus is that the "payload" that is loaded on infected computers is to auto-execute on February 1st and try to cause a specific company's web site to be bombarded. If this happens the whole Internet will slow way down because of the massive number of computers trying to send at the same time.   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org
