Peter Mayer Site Hacked

From Rob Benedict: Just wanted to give you a “heads up”: Peter Mayer’s web site http://www.petermayer.com has apparently been hit by internet pirates. There was a profane message against the U.S. Government posted. That message has since been removed. The site is not operative yet, but there is a “technical difficulties” screen displayed that states they are aware of the problem and are working to correct it. Let’s hope no serious damage was done and that Peter’s site is up and running soon!

Jimmy Serves Up More Gumbo

From Andy Hunt: I just found out that the Phish song that Jimmy Buffett will play for The Phish Tribute album will be “Gumbo” (it’s not Jimmy’s song “I will play for Gumbo”). I’ve heard Phish play this live and its a great song. They sometimes play it w/ horns if someone is there to play. You can hear Phish’s “Gumbo” at Amazon.com on the album “A Live One”
