5. Communications A. New Home for SMT Networking B. MTO Items C. SMT and MTO =============================== A. New Home for SMT Networking
This issue of MTO (0.10) marks the first prepared from what will become the main administration and distribution site of SMT networking operations, University of California, Santa Barbara. As announced in a recent message to the SMT Email Conference, over the course of this academic year all software and associated data files will be transferred to a machine (a Sun Microsystems Sparc Workstation) purchased by UCSB in order to host SMT networking. In addition to the machine and accompanying equipment (tape drive, CD-ROM, external 1GB disk), UCSB has also provided funds for a scanner (Hewlett Packard ScanJet) to create GIFs. We are grateful for UCSB's generous support of our networking projects.
MTO Subscribers will be notified about new addresses and procedures as the transfer to UCSB takes place. Until the transfer is complete, the familiar HUSC machine (Harvard University Science Center) will continue to host the operations. The FileServer addresses thus remain:
1. email@example.com for subscribing, unsubscribing, and setting subscriber options
2. firstname.lastname@example.org for ordering MTO items, documentation, and software through the MTO FileServer
3. email@example.com for contacting the editor
4. fas.harvard.edu for retrieving MTO items with FTP
The FTP site, formerly husc4.harvard.edu, is now fas.harvard.edu. Once logged in (using "anonymous" as login and your email address as password), for documentation change to the "docs" directory (type: cd pub/smt/mto/docs); for the current and back issues, change to the "issues" directory (type: cd pub/smt/mto/issues), and then to the directory containing the desired items; and for software, change to the "software" directory (type: cd pub/smt/mto/software). Items may be read or retrieved with the Harvard Gopher (fas-gopher.harvard.edu). Choose item 12 from the initial menu (Publications and News), and item 1 from the next menu (SMT). ---------------------------------------
B. MTO Items One month prior to the publication of each MTO issue, and then again two weeks prior to publication, calls for MTO items are broadcast to subscribers. Submission categories are:
1. Commentaries on past MTO essays 2. Dissertation notices 3. Empolyment notices 4. General announcements
Dissertation and employment notices must be submitted in the format included in the call for postings. Please follow the format, and limit the line length to a maximum of 65 characters. Commentaries should be prepared according to the author guidelines (given in the file authors.txt). General announcements have no set form but should adhere to the 65-character line length, and should include all relevant information (deadlines, fees, contact person[s], addresses, fax and voice telephone numbers, email addresses).
Those wishing to submit items for MTO may do so at any time. Any items received after the deadline for the next issue will be included in the following one. ------------------------------------
C. SMT and MTO At its annual national meeting in early November, the Society for Music Theory will discuss granting MTO official recognition as a Society publication, alongside the existing print journal *Music Theory Spectrum*. An ad hoc Networking Committee drafted a proposal for consideration by the SMT Publications Committee and the Executive Board. Should the proposal be adopted, prescribed administrative and editorial mechanisms for MTO will take effect, and staff members will be appointed to various posts. Additional staff will make it easier--will first make it possible--for MTO to consider offering a multi-media version of the journal on the World-Wide Web, which will require supplementary editorial assistance, as well as storage sites other than the UCSB machine. The November issue of MTO will carry an announcement about SMT's action on the proposal. +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
6. Copyright Statement +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Overview: 1. Retrieving MTO Items (with mto-serv and FTP) 2. Subscribing to MTO 3. Retrieving MTO Documentation 4. Queries and Communications
1. RETRIEVING MTO ITEMS Items are retrieved by sending an email message to the MTO FileServer, mto-serv, or through anonymous FTP (see below). To use the FileServer, send a message to one of the following two addresses:
firstname.lastname@example.org (Internet) email@example.com (Bitnet)
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the body of the message include the following lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path YourEmailAddress (Bitnet addresses *must* include .BITNET) send Item (specify item, as listed below) send Item (additional "send" lines, if desired)
After the word "path," enter your full email address (Bitnet users must include .BITNET). Be *sure* to include the word "path" followed by a valid email address. Without the "path" line, mto-serv will not know where to deliver requested items. To retrieve items from the *current* issue of MTO, after the word "send," replace "Item" with the one of the following options:
articles (= main article[s]) gifs (= musical examples) reviews (= review[s]) commentaries (= commentaries on past MTO articles) dissertations (= dissertation listings) announcements (= announcements) jobs (= job listings) package (= all the above items, in a single package) toc (= current table of contents)
path firstname.lastname@example.org send package
********************************************************************** CAUTIONARY NOTE: Subscribers with restricted emailbox space should be careful when using the "package" option. A full issue of MTO, text and musical examples, can be quite large and may "crash" an emailbox of limited size. It may be safer to request a few files at a time, and to remove them from the emailbox before requesting more files. **********************************************************************
For instructions on retrieving items from back issues, or complete back issues of MTO, consult the document "mto-guide.txt" (see below, on retrieving MTO documentation).
MTO items may also be retrieved through anonymous FTP. The site is: fas.harvard.edu). Use "anonymous" as loginID and your email address as password. Change to the directory pub/smt/mto (with the command: cd pub/smt/mto). The file mto.current contains all items constituting the current issue; toc.current is the most recent table of contents. The individual items of the current issue have filenames that begin as follows: mto.yy.v.i, where "yy" is the last two digits of the current year; "v" is the current volume number; and "i" is the current issue number (example: mto.94.0.6). Refer to the MTO Guide for further information.
2. SUBSCRIBING TO MTO To subscribe to MTO, send an email message to one of the following "listproc" addresses:
email@example.com (Internet) firstname.lastname@example.org (Bitnet)
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the text of the message include the following single line (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
subscribe mto-list YourFirstName YourLastName
You will receive a message confirming your subscription. Once the subscription is confirmed, to receive the MTO Guide send a message to one of the "listproc" addresses shown above, and as the body of the message include the single line: information mto-list
To cancel a subscription, send the following single line to one of the "listproc" addresses (not to mto-serv!): unsubscribe mto-list
[NOTE: Do not send email to the "listproc" addresses for anything other than initiating and terminating subscriptions to MTO. Further, do not send email to mto-list@husc. mto-list is solely for broadcasting MTO to its subscribers, *not* for communication among subscribers, nor for retrieving MTO items (done with mto-serv), nor for communication with the Editor (address above). Please do not send mail to mto-list@husc, *nor* use a "reply" command on email distributed through mto-list.]
3. RETRIEVING MTO DOCUMENTATION Several MTO explanatory documents are available through mto-serv:
mto-guide.txt (the MTO Guide, also retrievable from "listproc") Instructions for a. subscribing to MTO b. retrieving MTO items (articles, reviews, commentaries, musical examples, and figures) c. posting items in MTO (announcements, jobs, dissertations) d. searching the MTO database authors.txt Guidelines for authors policy.txt MTO editorial policy software.txt List of available software (IBM and Mac) for MTO subscribers, and instructions for retrieving the software mto.index List of all files in the MTO archive (updated regularly)
To retrieve any of these documents, send an email message to one of the "mto-serv" addresses (not to the "listproc" addresses!), and use the format shown above ("path" line with full email address, and one or more "send" lines specifying the desired document[s]). For example, to retrieve the document called "software.txt," address a message to mto-serv and as the body of the message include only the following two lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path email@example.com (Bitnet addresses must include .BITNET) send software.txt send authors.txt (additional "send" lines for more items)
The words "path" (followed by an email address) and "send" (followed by the desired item) *must* appear.
4. QUERIES AND COMMUNICATIONS Send all queries and communications (announcements, letters to the Editor, etc.) to one of the following addresses:
firstname.lastname@example.org (Internet) email@example.com (Bitnet) +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
