Some of you are aware that I run contrabass.com, and the associated mailing list. (If you were not aware, and are interested in unusual instruments like sarrusophones, contrabass saxophone, tubax, etc., and particularly in instruments for whom middle C is considered altissimo register, perhaps you would like to check it out ).
On Sunday, my ISP was migrating all of the email accounts to a new server, and experienced a catastrophic failure, losing all email accounts and configuration files. With it went the subscriber lists (digest and regular) for the mailing list. The only backup I had was (ahem ) pretty old, and covered only the digest subscribers. I'm still hopeful that the ISP may be able to recover the current address lists, but in the meantime have started reconstructing (OK, so you can see how optimistic I am). The list itself is back up and running.
If you are/were a subscriber, or would like to be a subscriber, just let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you know people who may be interested, please feel free to pass this along to them.
