Re: Style and preferences

In the meantime I have been grappling with the problem of installing a MediaWiki on my standalone PC so that I have somewhere to work on ideas and problems without interfering. I'm not even sure right now whether it is possible to install MediaWiki on this PC (Windows XP/Apache 2.2.2/MySQL 5.0.22/P...

Begräbnis- Oden

The little German I have I learned from my late father, but I can't see anything obviously funereal in the text I quoted. According to Babel-Fish "Funeral Odes" translates as "Begräbnis- Oden" auf Deutsch. If my memory serves me correctly, Schalmei'n translates as shawms or ?oboe...

Logo overlay?

I have just one complaint :cry: --that logo is blocking some of the links that usually go at the top of the page such as user functions (preferences, watchlist, submissions, etc.) As far as I know, this is just for the MonoBook skin. Perhaps you could crop some of the top of the logo off so I can g...

Style and preferences

Rather than risk screwing up :? I have reverted the style to the original Wiki CSS, the only changes that remain are those to the "Welcome" box. In the meantime I have been grappling with the problem of installing a MediaWiki on my standalone PC so that I have somewhere to work on ideas an...

Wandering off-topic

If you are more comfortable working with plain text, have you ever tried data processing with AWK? (i.e. GAWK) It has a lot of similarity with C, but is a very simple, easy to learn scripting language for data processing. These days I hardly use it, but way back when I was working with UNIX I used i...

LilyPond

When I was looking for software to help with musical notation I looked at Lilypond, and while the finished result looks quite good, I was put off by the complexity of the commands. One of my first jobs was as a computer typesetter - we were asked to set the most complex matter on a non-justifying ke...

Liszt - Funeral Odes

I must confess that I do not know the Funeral Odes :shock: and unfortunately my German is no better than AltaVista Babel Fish :shock: :shock:, so when I found something that looked ( more or less ) right, I seized it for further examination. But before I go ahead and gaily upload it, can anybody con...

Queen of Sheba / Solomon by Handel

I am astonished! This is such a popular piece, but none of the usual repositories seem to have a score. Were you looking for the complete, orchestral score? or a reduction? There is a piano reduction available here http://www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/show_score.pl?scoreid=73894&storeid=45998 if...

Isoldens Liebestod and Wikimedia

Thanks Feldmahler - I am still learning the Wikimedia software. It is very clever, the question is "am I?" In addition to which I am a bit shy of making changes even though they are easy to undo. To me, one of the most important characteristics of a Wiki is that it is shared by a community...

Browser

I use Firefox (but I suspect the problem lies with the connection speed. Ah well, someday, broadband) :(

Isoldes Liebestod - piano reduction by Liszt

:oops: Peter has quite rightly pointed out that rather than being on Wagner's page this should be on Liszt's page. I mistakenly assumed that it would be possible to link to the same PDF file from both pages, and created an entry on Liszt's page which of course cannot (at least by me) be linked to th...

Greetings Rafael

<hug> It's a pleasure to see you here. I'm not sure how Feldmahler would feel about this, but personally I would like to see some kind of affiliation between CPDL and IMSLP whether formal or informal. I quite often check the CPDL to see what new goodies have been added but I try to avoid stepping on...

File uploading

According to the Score Submission Guide the size limit for files being uploaded is 100MB :shock: however several times today I have attempted to upload a file which is a little over 2MB. I rely on a dialup connection, so transfer speed might be a problem as the failure always results in "The co...

Broken links

I have to agree with IMSLP and Horndude. Broken links are the curse of the internet. Considering how new the technology is, I am hopeful that at some point the stability will be improved, but how, and when, remains to be seen. Until that time we have to accept that the internet provides far greater ...
