    Roger Thorne

    Very sorry to hear of the passing of Roger Thorne. I'd fallen out of touch over the last while, but I will remember his goodwill and hard work toward this community, as well as his love of a good (or bad) pun. Only met him a couple of times, but his generosity and hospitality were obvious and to...

    David James RIP.

    Coming out of posting retirement to also pass on my respect for DJ, and to express my sympathies to Rita & family, and to his close friends. I first met DJ only a few years ago, and really have only spent a few hours in his company. That small amount of time though was enough to be impacted by...

    Ascertaining the manufacturing date of a B&H Clarinet

    I've heard you can tell the age by the colour smoke it makes when it burns... or by counting the rings when you take a cross-section cut.. on topic - first google post yields if that's any use?

    Divertimento - Eric Ball

    I wonder was it inspired by EB, or just a coincidence that the titles are the same. Anyway, back on topic Kepps - anyone able to find a recording?

    Divertimento - Eric Ball

    Another old thread. Closest match I can find from a quick web-trawl is on Bridgewater Hall 2002 with a trombone solo called "The Passing Years" I expect that's a coincidence, though, as I recall the 2nd mvt of Ball's Divertimento isn't a trombone solo. That's really not very helpful, but...

    Little cross box

    Looks like a theming issue. I expect the imagery is still safe and stuff - We'll put it on the list of stuff to get sorted!

    Do you have a windfarm near you... careful!

    Never stop playing!

    It's not that the tips aren't welcome - or that they're not the right things to be doing. I'm just missing the small "in-between" things which bridge the intention to do something and the effect of doing it. For a simple indicative example - how do I "arch" my tongue? How do I know if it's...

    Never stop playing!

    *waves* From a quick perusal, I see that despite my extended afk, I am still in the top 30 posters ever! Bunch of slackers!

    Never stop playing!

    Well - hullo to all the old names, and the new ones. I don't know if I should be glad that I've been able to get through the first couple of rehearsals without disgracing myself too badly, or to cry that it's taken me so little time to get to a stage where I think I'm not disgracing myself. I...

    I was expecting to see sean connery in there from that comment... seeing me on the system is, as usual, the result for forgetting to delete my own random testing data. If I'd come higher up, it would have done wonders for the "pick-by-alphabet" method, and I predict the number of bands with...

    tMP Regional Prediction Competition 2006

    Some big scorers in round one - have they been worn out by a big early effort, or do they have the stamina to carry on through the contest. There's a long way to go yet. Tune in for round two...
