Calendar is Ready! - 09/03/03 07:35 AM

The new forums Calendar is ready!

http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=calendar

For now, post events dates here and I will get them on the calendar.

To see details about an event, click on the day it is listed and look at the bottom of the calendar.

If you would like your birthday to show up in the calendar, you have to update your profile to show your date of birth. If it already is, you may need to make some kind of update anyway, so the calendar re-looks at the info.

HINT:[/b] If you just choose the day and month (leave year showing the word Year), it won't show how old you are:-)

More later...

Frank,

These are developing in the corresponding thread and I would direct all who are, or might be, interested that way.

As far as directions, I guess that's up to Steve, since he's the only one who knows them. Mapquest (also, Mapblast) is a nice resource for such things. I presume one can post a link to a map prepared through one of these sites.

how long does it take for the calendar to update now that I put my birthdate in my profile? (but I put the wrong year in this time - 2013 - just to see what happens)

Sounds like a wonderful program, Shantinik. I know you are glad Meera decided to over-rule her personal decision not to perform in public. Anything for a good cause, I guess, and I'm sure you helped by not being too effusively enthusiastic.

I am moved to post for two reasons (the second is really a moot point). I am very curious seeing all the names, as to why Meera has had so many teachers, and who (or what) they are.

Also, you have requested Khachatourian's Toccata (lively rendition) and I only wish my son were not preparing right now for one or two competitions or else he could work it up again and send it via MP3 File. When he had this piece really "a point" the summer of '02, he was quite good - and very rousing. Much better if I may say, than the Valerie Lloyd version (Suzuki) he was at first listening to. Or maybe it was a track from "Recital Winners" Book II (Alfred?)which also has a CD. Maybe a music store could let you hear just that band and see if it will do.

Ted was able to liven it up on his own, with admittedly some help at piano camp...It is, as you know quite dissonant (think of a factory during early Soviet days, kind of musical "Socialist Realism") and the big, enormous challenge was the constantly changing tempo.

At any rate good luck to Meera! I hope she will let you use a camcorder at least.

Well, after receiving a tip (thanks, Linda in PA!) I updated my profile to include my birthday, and within hours, the calendar showed my birthday. Didn't add a birth year, but didn't think that mattered any.
