(back) Subject: Re: A tiny requiem From: "Burgie" <beejayusa@cox.net> Date: Wed, 10 Nov 2004 19:12:03 -0800   I have 6 cory cats, 6 albino cory cats, a couple other bottom feeders whose names escape me, a couple different types of tetras, a beta, and a few other fish that I have no idea what they are called. Oh also got a couple snails that appeared out of nowhere. LOL All in a 10 gallon tank. I lost my albino pleicostumus, eel, mollies, sword tail sharks and frogs. I have no idea why. I have tried replacing them and they continue to die so will stick with what I have. Unfortunately they haven't moved to the new house. Don't know how I'm gonna do that even emptying most of the water it is pretty heavy. Also don't know how well they are going to handle the sloshing around even driving at 10 mph. :o( Glenda wrote:   >I know my life has sounded quite tragic, so I hate to impart even more >bad news.

(back) Subject: Music For Two Organs From: "Robert Bell" <bobbell@optonline.net> Date: Wed, 10 Nov 2004 23:44:10 -0500   Hello List,   I usually am just lurking and learning from this list, but today I = received a wonderful gift from someone that knows of my love of the pipe organ, = that I would like to share with the list.   A new CD from NAXOS catalog number 8.557131,entitled "Dialogue For Two Organs." The organists are Luigi Celeghin and Bianka Pezic.   The recording is of the two organs at the Basilica Pontificia Maria SS. Della Misercordia, S. Elpidio a Mare, Ascoli Piceno, Italy.   Organs 'in cornu Evangelii' by Gaetano Callido (1785) and 'in cornu Epistolae" by Pietro Nacchini (1757).   Works by Cherubini, Galuppi, Clenenti, Bonazzi, Busi,and Canneti all for = two organs.   Very enjoyable music from 17th to 19th centurys.   Returning to lurking mode. Bob Bell

(back) Subject: Re: the horse and buggy days of computers From: "Jan Nijhuis" <nijhuis@email.com> Date: Thu, 11 Nov 2004 14:23:04 +0800   There are two stories about the name LISA... 1. the name of an illigitimate child of one of the Steve's (Jobs or Wozniac= k). 2. LISA stood for "Let's Invent Some Acronymn."   The Motorola 68000 was named becuase there were sixty-eight thousand circui= ts on the microprocessor. Sound in the Macintosh, however, was produced independent from the CPU.   =46rom some late 1990's documentation: " The DAC in Macintosh Plus and Macintosh SE computers is a Sony sound chip= .. The Macintosh II, Macintosh Portable, Macintosh PowerBook and Macintosh Q= uadra families of computers contain two Sony sound chips (to provide stereo= output capability) as well as the Apple Sound Chip (ASC), a customized chi= p that provides enhanced audio output characteristics as well as emulation = capabilities for the earlier sound hardware.   " Some recent models of Macintosh computers contain built-in sound hardware= that extends the Apple Sound Chip's features. For example, Macintosh compu= ters with built-in microphones include the Enhanced Apple Sound Chip (EASC)= .. Some Macintosh computers contain DSP chips that provide very high-quality= sound (16-bit stereo sound, at rates up to 44 kHz). There are also NuBus e= xpansion cards available from third-party developers that provide other aud= io DAC hardware."   To keep this on topic, like electronic organs, Small Mac's (Mac, Mac 512, M= ac SE) were commonly called "Toasters." The name was fitting because of the= ir appliance-like characteristics.     ----- Original Message ----- From: RMaryman@aol.com To: pipechat@pipechat.org Subject: Re: the horse and buggy days of computers Date: Wed, 10 Nov 2004 21:28:13 EST   > I believe that the fore-runner of the Mac was called the LISA (don't reme= mber=20 > what the acronym stood for) but the LISA was a computer front end for the= =20 > Compugraphic 6400 and edtWriter series of photo-composition machines.=20 .... and the=20 > several intergrated functions of the machine's Motorola CPU chip the orig= inal=20 > 68000 that would do SOUND in addition to the other goodies written into t= he user=20 > interface and operating system code.=20=20   -- Jan Nijhuis nijhuis@email.com   --=20 ___________________________________________________________ Sign-up for Ads Free at Mail.com http://promo.mail.com/adsfreejump.htm

Unfortunately the original church with its electrified Farrand and Votey reed organ is no longer there... But I remember that reed organ had a number of ranks, including (gasp, gasp) a broad scaled 2' Principal, which made a considerable contribution to that organ's ensemble.   The reservoir of the organ, alas, had been removed when it was electrified...   A number of years thereafter that parish built a new church, which now houses a 2 manual Hook and Hastings pipe organ of about 14 ranks, I think...   The Virginia Theological Seminary at one time had an Estey reed organ (electrified, but with the original reservoir retained), with a 2' Wald Flute... I felt that said Wald Flute made very little contribution to the overall ensemble...   Best wishes to all...     Morton Belcher fellow list member....       __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

I wanted to buy one in 1957, but could not as I was just a humble high school student beginning my study of the organ, and my parents were not exactly rolling in money...   One of the good advantages of the internet is that now I can buy used copies (at decent prices, too) of books I wanted to buy "x" years ago but was unable to do so...   Best wishes to all,     Morton Belcher fellow list member...         __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
