Welcome to the AES Historical Committee's E-mail Reflector.

***PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT BEFORE POSTING!***
CharterThe AES Historical Committee E-mail Reflector is a forum for discussion of the history of audio engineering, as given in its Operating Structure: "To unite persons interested in the history of audio engineering and its allied fields; and to collect, write, publish, and otherwise disseminate accurate historical information about the field of audio engineering."
Using the E-Mail Reflector
Thread DriftOver time, the topic of a thread may change. WHEN IT DOES, PLEASE UPDATE THE SUBJECT FIELD OF YOUR EMAIL TO REFLECT WHAT IS ACTUALLY BEING DISCUSSED IN YOUR POST.
Making sure the subject fields accurately represent what is being talked about allows persons interested in those topics to find them, and those not not interested in those topics to skip them.
Subjects Thoroughly DiscussedThe reflector began in 1999, but has not yet (2001-08) been used extensively. As time progresses, new subscribers wishing to learn the list's collective (and considerable) wisdom should retrieve the archives (see below) and search for relevant posts. Please avoid posting until you have determined that you have a question to ask or a point to make that has not been covered previously, and even then seriously consider contacting the original poster by private email instead of using reflector bandwidth. Anyone wishing to distill the best posts in the archives for posting on the Historical Committee's web page (see Resources, below) should contact the HC CoChair, Bill Wray.
PostingTo post to the reflector, send email to email@example.com. When replying, please TRIM UNNECESSARY PARTS of the original post to conserve bandwidth and server space.
HTML, MIME-encoded posts, Vcards, etc.Please do not send HTML, MIME-encoded messages, or posts with vcard attachments to the reflector. Please configure your email client to send ONLY plain ASCII text. If you are unsure how to do this, consult the program documentation or vendor.
Pictures and Other BinariesPlease do not send pictures and other binaries to the reflector. Send them by private email instead. If they are of long-term interest, please contact the HC Co-Chair, Bill Wray for possible inclusion on the HC's web site (see below).
Getting HelpSending email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the text
will return a list of the commands majordomo understands.
Getting the Reflector in Digest FormIf you would rather read a compilation of the last few days' messages rather than individual messages as they are posted, you can subscribe to aeshc-digest instead. This is a separate reflector, so you must subscribe to it separately. Do this by sending email to email@example.com with the text
subscribe aeshc-digest firstname.lastname@example.org
unsubscribe aeshc email@example.com
You can unsubscribe from the AES Historical Committee E-mail Reflector at any time by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the text
unsubscribe aeshc (or unsubscribe aeshc-digest)
Contacting the Reflector HostIf all else fails, send email to Howard Sanner, the reflector host.
Web PageThe AES Historical Committee has a web page (http://www.aes.org/aeshc). There you will find links to other historical sites, reports on the history of audio engineering, information about active projects, communicating with the Historical Committee, and committee administration. The reflector software automatically compiles an archive of all posts to the AES Historical Committee's E-mail Reflector. To retrieve a list of files available, send email to email@example.com with the text
if you are on the "regular" reflector, or
if you have subscribed to the digest version (see below).
The list is in the format of a Unix directory display, which means that
the filenames are in the far right hand column. Note that Unix allows filenames
to be more than eleven characters and to contain more than one period.
To retrieve files, send email
to firstname.lastname@example.org with the text
get aeshc [filename]
get aeshc-digest [filename]
It is possible to get more than one file per request; just put each
"get" command on a separate line before the "end" command.
At the moment, the only way to search the archives is to retrieve the files and use an auxiliary program (grep, or the search function of your favorite word processor or text editor) to search for strings of interest.
