GSM Internet Domain and New Email Addresses
By Hauke Marxsen

A few of the MMD members already know what GSM stands for, but for
all those who do not know, I will explain.  It stands for "Gesellschaft

Society for Self-playing Musical Instruments.

An Internet domain name with GSM was not available, so the board of
the society has chosen the name "" for their
Internet presentation.

The name "Musica Mechanica" has a long tradition in the GSM because
it is used for the famous collector meetings (mart or exchange) that
are held twice a year in Ruedesheim as a joint activity of GSM and the
Siegfried Wendel family.

GSM members will find the previous information also in the next

Number 78 / July 2000; it will reach you in the next days.

Kind regards from Hauke Marxsen
