		 Pipes Digest #48 - January 26, 1991


From: ?????????????????????????????? (Elias Mazur)
Subject: I'm still alive...


Hello everybody,

   After a veeryy loong period away from the pipe mailgroup, due to unstable
computer accounts, I'm happily back.  I've kept up with the pipe digests by
logging into my previous account, but since it was a long distance call away
from me, I barely had time to read the message without going bankrupt.
Remember, I have to buy pipes too :-).

  Anyway, I am happy that the group that I had the honor to have started along
with Steve is well, alive and smoking (hopefully a nice English blend - no
flames, I'm not smoking now :-) . Hopefully now I will be able to be more
active in the mailgroup, since apparently I got a fairly stable account in one
of our clients.

  In this past year that I was absent of the group, I have acquired a number
of pipes, which of course would take a long time to list them and talk about
all of them now.  The one I would like to mention is a full bent pipe bought
at the Connoisseur (remember Steve) in NYC.  It is a very nice pipe with a
bird's eye grain.  I mentioned this pipe because the person in the pipe store
(the same one when me and Steve were there almost two years ago) told me that
the shape, a full bent, was named after a South African general who wanted a
pipe that would be easy to hold in the mouth while giving orders in the battle
field, and whose name I have forgot (unfortunately !!!).  Anyway, if someone
knows more about it, please share with us.  I will try to find out more about
it myself.  It was also my X-mas pipe, since part of the money to purchase the
pipe came from a gift certificate given to me. It would be nice to hear from
everybody about any X-mas pipes bought and/or received as X-mas presents.

  Inspired by the shape of this pipe, together with the fact that I am working
in a workstation running X windows, I have created a nice bitmap to be used as
the root cursor.  I am sending the file with the bitmap and instructions to
Steve and if someone has a workstation with X windows, send Steve mail and he
can send to you .  Sorry Steve, I don't want to give more you work, but I
figured would be easier in terms of e-mail addressing to contact you.  Anyway,
I hope those of you who got X windows will enjoy the nice pipe cursor.

  Continuing with my catching up of old pipe digests, I remember recently a
message in which we had the sad note of Rich Kulawiec, who unfortunately had to
quit (aarrgghh !! what a terrible word...) smoking his pipe.  He says in his
message that he had ulcer and had to quit (aarrrgghh !!!).  When I begun to
smoke pipes and really started to enjoy it fully, I got concerned about the
possibility of an ulcer over a long period of time.  The solution I found for
myself was to drink milk on a VERY regular basis.  I like milk a lot, so I had
no problem.  I usually drink a glass of milk after my night pipe at home.  It
may be a little empirical, but it also may work.

  Finally I want to thank Steve for keeping up with the pipes digest which,
like a pipe itself, gives all of us a moment of tranquility.

[ Good to have you back, Elias! I believe the general's name was Oom
  Paul; I have one of his pipes too (from Savinelli). Can I forward
  your posting to Rich? -S. ]

Steve here is the bitmap file for the pipe cursor.

--------- cut here -------------

Instructions:

  1) save the first bitmap in a file called 'bigpipe'
  2) save the second bitmap in a file called 'bigpipeMask'
  3) give the command:

     xsetroot -cursor bigpipe bigpipeMask -fg black -bg brown

  4) enjoy the pipe...
