Hello.
First of all I'd like to congratulate you Andrew for this site, it looks really good Smile
Second of all, is anyone else having trouble with mozilla firefox ? i can't click the buttons Sad also I can see the subcategories for "about andrew" and "piano info" and they are flashing like crazy Very Happy
It works fine with IE though (except i can't see the videos).
Nathan did a great job, keep up the good work guys Smile

Hey thanks for the comments ^_^ I'm glad you like the site! actually to fix that problem you're having all you need to do is update to the latest version of flash. I had the same problem on another computer, i just downloaded the new flash update and i was good to go!

If it's still giving you problems after downloading the latest version of Flash then try reinstalling Mozilla Firefox because it might be conflicting with Flash player.

The reason why it does that is because if you stay idle without saying anything for a long period of time, it'll time you out and end your session. You need to stay active instead of being inactive when you're in the chat. Although, me and Andrew might have to configure it differently because it might become constant and kick you out every time you're idle.

I think it would be more beneficial to let people stay in even if they are idle... but I am not a tech wiz maybe there is a reason why it is actually good to configure like that...
Probably my idea of chat is more like messengers.. and if you log in there it is not going to kick you out even if you dont talk.
Hmmm so you are the tech right hand of Andrew Wink You keep up the good work too Smile)
And of course tutvid did an excellent job on it too He deserves credit too.

Yeah, that's what it SHOULD be doing - not kicking anyone out even if they're idle. I'll contact Andrew about that asap and see what we can do.

Congratulations on your site Andrew. I think it's really nice. Usually I don't like the forums on sites because there is no good overview, but I think this one is great. So I guess I'll stick around here Very Happy
I hope that there will be more people who think like me, because it's a shame if things start getting quiet around here!

Re: About the site

Post by Benoit on Tue Aug 19, 2008 8:10 am

Hello Andrew,

I like the site and your youtube videos. They are unique to my eyes for four reasons:
-you don't only explain "how to play x song" but how to learn the piano, technically too.
-you answer to people questions and resquests
-you approach the music theory too (and not only the piano itself).
Your lessons are complete.
-everything's is free. When you know the price of private lessons, it helps me a lot. In Belgium we can learn for low prices in the academies but there are waiting lists. As I already have singing lessons, I am not allowed to subscribe on a waiting list! I do have to learn it by myself or dropping my singing lessons and waiting four or five years.

Thank you very much!

Benoit

One thing i would suggest with the site is the order of posts,, it would be more streamline to have the newest post display first under a topic, and the oldest post on last.
what does everyone else think???????
i have found this to be very effective on a phpbb forum my friends and myself own for general chatting and organising weekends etc etc.

all you have to when opening a topici s look down to the last post you read (( usually only 2 posts down,, then work your way to the top which doesnt take much time or filtering))
anyways,
CHEERS!!!
