More Details on Google Groups

The group/mailing-list is a one-way mirror of what's posted in the web-log. If you reply to a posting using your e-mail program, it (probably) will be distributed to everyone on the mailing list, but it will not show up in the blog itself.

If I could, I would configure the group so that would accept only e-mail sent through But I can't see how to do that. So I leave it to you: for the majority of posts and comments, please post through the interface. Only reply to e-mail if you're not a member of this weblog (i.e. can't post (although you can still comment: anyone can leave a comment)) or if you want (for some reason) to have your words show up in the group archive, but not in the weblog itself.

[The proper solution would be for Blogger to make it possible to send notices directly to multiple people, but they haven't seen fit to do that yet. Their standard answer is to set up a Google Groups-Beta group, which leads to this kind of confusion. Sorry!]

[Another solution would be for me to set up our own blogging software, possibly based on SlashCode.]

Brass rehearsal days

I let this one sneak up on me: starting tomorrow, I have a class at 6:15 for the next 8 Mondays. Is it OK to move rehearsal to Wednesday? Is it too late to make such a change this week?
