Well, first about the orchestra. This coming weekend weíll have some concerts having another orchestra as guests, like we often do, another orchestra from another city comes and gathers with us to play altogether, and from our part Iíll be the Concertino (the principal of the first violins), so I donít know how are we going arrange with the other invited people, obviously Iíll be sharing my sit with the concertino of the other orchestra, but I donít know whoíll get to be the concertino of the whole gathered-orchestra; will it be me or him? Honestly I wouldnít mind if he gets to be the concertino, I donít feel myself quite prepared for such being the principal violin. Whatever,... so much words for such and little thing.

Second; my birthday is this Saturday October 16th, and my mother decided to give a new computer for myself, because actually we all were sharing only one computer in the house, so she gave me a computer as an advanced birthday present, and I appreciated her for that a lot. Well, then, now I have my computer, but 2 problems were still found;
The new computer has WinXP, and I donít like it, it wastes a lot of memory in graphics and images, and I donít find it fast. I know Iím not really to aware of computers, and I know that many people manage themselves to use properly the WinXP for a good work, but in my very own experience Iíve had a lot of bugs, troubleshooting and errors while using WinXP, Iíve been quite still satisfied using WinME or even Win98.
The second problem, was the Internet. As I had been saying lately, the internet was fatally slow, I we decided to go with the other company of internet provider. On Monday I went to contract it, they give me the Kit (modem, wires, cd, etc) and apparently we will be having the internet in 4 days. I took less (3 days), and today I decided to install it on my new computer, and yet as apparently when it seemed to be working fine, when trying to connect to msn, had some error messages, then the screen froze and some other bugs and error messages occurred. I immediately knew it had to be with some of the XP thingy..., I tried to uninstall the modem software and such, but more and more errors, tried to install it again and do more stuff and it just got on my nerves. Some whiles there was internet, some other whiles there was no response; so I decided to install the kit in the other computer, here in the one with WinME, and it seems to be very well installed and with no problems of functioning; the internet is finally at a very decent speed, I finally can browse normally through internet. So Iíve come again to the conclusion the I do not like the XP thing. Iíll try to talk to the computer salesman to see if he can uninstall the XP and install the ME on the new computer.

Well, I still wanted to write more about more stuff, but I guess Iím sort of tired now (and a bit pissed about the computers problems); Maybe tomorrow or after, Iíll keep writing about other issues.

firstly, happy birthday!

secondly, i have a feeling that the two of you will share the concertino position... thats what i have done in the past, but if you offer your spot.. maybe he/she will agree to do the whole thing?

thirdly, i'm computer illiterate.... i got nothin'
