What is a "digital package," and what = does it have to do with a pipe organ?   The last "digital package" I received in the mail was a box full of fingers, which I immediately turned over to the FBI for analysis and = identification. Scary...

I still = don't really know anyone, but I'm working on it as classes get going.

The console is in good shape, but there are random notes sticking. It feels as if there is no play in the sticking = notes, and that they might be rubbing against something. Does anyone have any ways to =   fix this that I might be able to manage. We do not have a service = contract, only have a service that comes twice a year as per request. Any suggestions, = help, or thoughts?   -Peter Isherwood
