  1. He's great. He was just at the Detroit Jazz Festival and played the same stage I did about 4 hours later, but I didn't get a chance to catch him. I decided to bring my wife and kids to the show, because they rarely get to see me on the big stage these days, and the kids got tuckered out, so I had to take them home. Joey D was there as well as Pat Biachi with Pat Martino. I wanted to catch them all but hey... kids be kids.


  2. Hey Leif,

    This is a common issue with the Fatar TP80 keybed that many manufacturers use, including Hammond, Nord, Crumar, and others. In fact, I have the same issue on my SK1 with the same key.

    One solution is to disassemble and clean under the contacts. Sometimes dust and debris can creep underneath. However, I did this with mine and it didn't solve the issue. So the next step is to replace the rubber contact strip that contains that note. The strips contain contacts for 12 notes each (if I recall correctly) so you really only need one strip. The following should work:

    https://www.midi-store.com/Fatar-Rubber-Contact-for-SL880-990-13-12-p/sku17166.htm

    Please note that I have not ordered from that company, so I have no idea if they are reputable. I'm also not 100% sure that those are the correct contacts for the TP80 keybed. Might be worth a call.

  3. They just changed the name of the server. It might take a while to propagate through the system, but it should fix the problem.

    From LiquidWeb:

    At this time it looks like you do not have ownership of the domain: organissimo2.com

    This has allowed a 3rd party to register the domain and setup a malicious nameserver allowing the redirects to take place.

    In a situation of changing servers we would normally recommend domain names like the following:

    host.organissimo.org

    to new server:

    host2.organissimo.org

    This would allow for the new server creation with domain names under your ownership.

    I would recommend that we update the server hostname to host2.organissimo.org as well as set the nameserver GLU records to the following after we change the server hostname:

    ns1.organissimo.org  67.225.241.38
    ns2.organissimo.org  67.225.241.38

    Please confirm and I will proceed.


  4. This is the reply I got from Liquid Web, my server company.

    I see that after requesting organissimo.org/forum the request is redirected to www.organissimo.org which according to DNS records points to a different server:

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    www.organissimo.org.    671    IN    A    190.2.131.62

    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
    organissimo.org.    532    IN    NS    ns2.organissimo2.com.
    organissimo.org.    532    IN    NS    ns1.organissimo2.com.

    ;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
    ns2.organissimo2.com.    671    IN    A    190.2.131.63
    ns1.organissimo2.com.    671    IN    A    190.2.131.62

    The IP address 190.2.131.62 shows the following ownership:

    owner:       WorldStream B.V.
    ownerid:     NL-WOBV-LACNIC
    responsible: Dirk Vromans

    After hitting this server then a second redirect is sent to send the user to goodmayor.com @

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    goodmayor.com.        290    IN    A    34.196.13.28

    Before getting then redirected several more times to the eventual ad. I would recommend looking at godaddy and seeing what is set there and if any changes have been made. As well I would recommend looking into this doppelgänger domain is as it appears to be the first step in the redirects:

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    organissimo2.com.    900    IN    A    190.2.131.62

    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
    organissimo2.com.    900    IN    NS    ns1.xzydns.com.
    organissimo2.com.    900    IN    NS    ns2.xzydns.com.

    The new server is called host.organissimo2.com. The old server, which is now turned off and gone, was called host.organissimo.org. I accidentally put .com in the new one and supposedly there is an actual site called www.organissimo2.com that is the source of all this. So for some reason we're getting our wires crossed, so to speak.

    The DNS configuration at GoDaddy, which is my site registrar, are set correctly as far as I can tell. I'm wondering if the problem is the name of my server. Now that the old server is gone, I've asked if they can change the name of the new one to host.organissimo.org


  5. You're welcome. I was pretty stressed out the last few days because the server company was not really helping. I had to basically threaten to pull my business. I've never had any kind of issue like that with them before but they sold the company a few years ago (it was started locally by a kid in his bedroom) and since then the response time and quality of the tech service has taken a bit of a hit. I let them know I wasn't happy about how nonchalant they were while things were down and thankfully they stepped up.

    The good news is that the forum is running on the new server and everything is ready to upgrade the forum software. It just can't be done via the admin panel, which is how I've done it in the past. This is because the database is missing a specific table for some reason. I pay Invision, the software company that makes the forum software, a yearly fee for support, which includes installation, so hopefully they will help soon.


  6. Wow, that was frustrating. I'll spare the details but at least things are working. We are on the new server. However, I am unable to update the actual forum software, which is the entire reason we moved servers in the first place. I have an email out to the forum software company about the next step. Stay tuned.


  7. I created a new fundraiser for 2018 and added those that contributed today to that fundraiser. Thank you.

    Yes, I thought about the fact that online discussion forums such as these seem to be rather antiquated. That's why I'm leaving it up to you all to decide if you want to keep it going. In regards to security issues, we do daily backups so I doubt any data would be lost in the event of a hack, but they could potentially use an exploit in the old software to take over my entire server, which would be bad and/or steal people's personal information. Thankfully we don't have anything like credit card numbers stored here, but emails and locations and such.
