Re: Ragtime Competition Ad
By Pete Woodworth

Hi, folks. Regarding the 'Crazy About Ragtime' contest:
> >
> > Anyone who purchases Robert Winter's Crazy for Ragtime in the U.S.
> > from May 15 to October 31, 1996 will be eligible to win a Yamaha
> > Disklavier piano by submitting his or her originally composed rag from
> > the Make Your Own Rag section of Crazy for Ragtime.
> > I believe that in most states, requiring any purchase for contest entry is **illegal** as it constitutes a lottery; Ed McMahon can't require you to buy magazines, and McDonald's can't require you to buy their [toxic] products in order to be eligible to enter their contests. An entry form is probably available from Yamaha or the software publisher. Anyone interested in entering should check it out.

Regarding the FAQ(s):

It would be great if the basic FAQ outline were assembled as a 'web page, with 'links' pointing to the text sections. Those volunteers composing and assembling the various sections could 'publish' them via 'web page and FTP sites, linked into the outline via hypertext...

For those who think the above is gibberish and/or are not 'web-connected yet, please e-mail me. ;-)

Un-solicited/unpaid editorial:

Dear 'web-deprived AMI subscribers (who are probably reading this on old analog paper technology), I read that Jody is still having to apologise that you aren't able to read this digest 'online'. C'mon folks, America Online is only a measley $10. per month, and there are plenty of cheap PC's that will give you the hardware basics for 'getting connected.' There's *no* reason not to get 'online', and a gazillion reasons that you should. We need you here! If my 71-year old aunt can buy a computer; you can too! If you need assistance, please don't hesitate to call me. There are many other subscribers to this list who would love to assist you, too!

Regards, sincerely, Pete Woodworth Media Production Specialist Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA 805-756-7197
