** Orchestra News **
- The new term started with a decent rehearsal, the usual Robinson pub trip
and a good random party in Vicki's room.
- Lots of curries and pubmeets happened over the summer... too many to list
individually. We've now tried just about every curry place on Mill Road.
- The orchestra is starting an official table football team to enter into
the uni league...

- Welcome to the new digest members... this list is mainly a summary of the
orchestra chat/gossip/spam list, soc-ucpo-misc. This digest covers the
second half of the summer holiday - during term the digests come out every
2-4 weeks depending on how much people post. There are usually more people
posting than shown here - but not everyone has net access all summer...
- Digests eventually turn up on the UCPO Chat section of the website
(http://www.ucpo.org.uk).
- If you want to join the main chat list, let me know... volume is moderate
to high (20-100 mails a day during term, but with occasional mailstorms or
quiet weeks), with no binaries.
- Vicki has a music stand in a soft black case left over from the party, if
someone would like to claim it.

- A formal hall will be happening in Queens' at some point in about two
weeks. NOTE: It won't be on the Thursday any more, as that FH is fully
booked... I'll keep everyone informed. Let me know if you want to come and
haven't signed the signup sheet that went around at the rehearsal.

** What We Talked About **

were impressed.

- How to make audio CDs from MP3s (you naughty, naughty musicians)
