(back) Subject: A Configuration Test From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Sun, 17 Jul 2005 11:29:05 -0500   I have made a few changes in the configuration here at PipeChat and need to make sure the list is working OK Sorry for the interruption.   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org  
(back) Subject: Slow day? From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sun, 17 Jul 2005 11:59:18 -0500   Is conversation lulling on both lists? Just checking. I received a post each from PipeChat and Piporg-L in the last 24 hours. Please don't start chattering on my account - I'm still checking all my equipment and appliances to determine if I have any more storm damage.   We attempted to buy a new TV yesterday. After looking at a godawful amount of standard, LCD, plasma, thin-screen, wide-screen, tall-screen, projectors and what have you, we finally chose what we wanted. It wasn't in stock. Went to a second store - not in stock. Third store - didn't carry it. Rick was too angry to allow me to order one. So if there's a storm coming and Weather.com and/or the radio station doesn't tell us . . . . Of course, our TV satellite was zapped too. So I'm singing plainchant to myself in the bathtub instead of watching church on TV.   Going to an organ recital this afternoon. Later.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

My carefully configured Netscape based email program kept indicating there were messages coming in but none would appear when I checked for them. About 15 minutes ago I began to toggle each one of my folders which began to rebuild the summary file and I found 6 messages from Pipechat and 5 messages from Piporg that had not been there before and were time stamped within the last 24 hours. Things seem back to normal now. Enjoy the recital and good luck with your TV shopping. Get the plasma, you've earned it. Cheers Mike   Glenda wrote:   >Is conversation lulling on both lists?

I think some of it is that some of our members are at the OHS Convention and from various things I have heard email access from Brockton is rather difficult. One of our members wrote me saying the following:   "...here in Brockton there is no way of getting on Email, so I am, for the first time, logging on, using (someone else's) computer. They have no business center in the hotel, and no internet cafe within a thousand miles of the hotel. How rural."   Well, I do know that there are Internet cafes within a thousand miles (Boston isn't that far away <grin>) but I gather there is nothing close to the hotels. Two members of the group including Tim Bovard, our Co-Administrator, were able to get on-line for a short period on Friday night and joined in the Friday night IRC Chat. Hopefully they and maybe some others will join us on Monday night on IRC.   Since everything is a bit slow that is why I pricked this morning to do some reconfiguration of how mail gets to the lists here at PipeChat. And that was the reason for the "Configuration Test" postings to all the lists. Part of the reconfiguration has to do with the mail server here being able to filter out the "spam" that keeps getting sent to the list server. Although none of it gets on the lists it does add a huge extra amount of mail that the list server has had to process and has caused hugh bounce mails to the Administrators.   The other reason for reconfiguring the way mail is handled is that we are looking into various options for changing the list server software but we need to be able to test various other servers. But the way I have redone things we can have several different servers running for various tests and all of them use the pipechat.org domain name. Prior to my reconfiguration this morning that wasn't possible.   I do have a feeling that once the OHS Convention is over and people get back home or to places where they can send email easily we will be getting reports about the convention. I have also set-up a new PipeChat Gallery where hopefully some members at the Convention that took photos will upload them for the rest of us to see.   David   -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

(back) Subject: Re: Barber Adagio: "Agnus Dei" From: <DarrylbytheSea@aol.com> Date: Sun, 17 Jul 2005 20:33:25 EDT   Hi, Y'all, Yes, there is an arrangement of the Barber for choir, using the "Agnus = Dei" text. It's very tough, and you'd better have your descending half-steps in =   order for good tuning. I first heard Wilma Jensen's choir at St. George's = in Nashville do it, and it was ravishing in their acoustic It was one of = those pieces and performances I hope never to forget. Yours, Darryl

He did a splendid job with the = crescendos and diminuendos, and surely, he must have used a zillion pistons! Darryl
