When I talk to people who come from remote countries, I always think about what they think about me and my homeland. (I suppose they think nothing as they don't know it.)

Today our government has released a short movie which tries to introduce Czechia, so let me invite you to watch it. 

Maybe you'll get some imagination what Czech republic (or shortly Czechia) means. 🙂

Merry christmas to all of you. hats_off

Did you not receive it?  

I did not. How did you send it?

@Fiddlerman I just sent two violin parts, and will try to work on the cello part this weekend.  Pierre, if you are doing the mashup before then, no worries, don't wait.

Sprend ... I will try again ...

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Ok ... I did it again.

BTW the message says if it isn't downloaded within 120 mins it will be deleted.  That's probably what happened, because we all know I'm on the other side of the world and you're all asleep when I'm awake.

So I've also uploaded it to dropbox and sent you the link.

Hi @Robyn.fnq - my understanding (regarding "sprend") was somewhat different - I thought the 120 mins is how long it is kept after the first time the recipient picks it up.  If not picked up within around 7 days, it's deleted regardless...   just checked the sprend FAQs - yup - it says

How long is a file kept?

A file is kept in storage for at most 7 days (21 days for Sprend Pro users). But it is also the case that the file will be deleted 2 hours after is has been successfully downloaded one time.

... yeah - it could maybe be a bit clearer - I'm sure the reference to "downloaded one time" refers to the recipient's download, not the sender's transfer (upload) to the sprend server...   Hahaha, upload / download - depends if you're speaking as the client or the server.

But equally, you're not the first to apparently have sprend files not being received...  interesting...   hmmm...dunno

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

I now have:

terezka = 3 videos
Eudora = 1 video
Bill = 1 video
Diane = 1 video
PopFiddle = 5 videos
Colin Hadfield = 3 videos
intrepidgirl = 2 videos
Jim Dunleavy
Robyn
Toni
Fiddlerman = 5

I'm not particularly happy with the lack of submissions but I blame myself. I should have made video tutorials. I should have written some easier parts. Possibly posted the project in many more social media venues. I tested the parts for the first time when recording my videos today. I assumed it was easier. It's not that easy to play for beginners to say the least.
If I can get one more submission, we can make it an even 12 on the screen. Will look much nicer. Who will be the hero? 🙂 The past projects have had considerably more submissions.

Thanks so much Karen,

I mixed all the audio files. I'll include that video as well. I wanted a new person but that is not going to happen and I'm officially closing the project and will wrap it up soon.

My fault. Next time, I'll start earlier, will post lessons, have more resources and easy parts as well as more challenging parts. 🙂

Awh.. How sweet. Thank you Pierre.

Thanks everyone what a good time.

How lovely to see the little gentleman join us, and the smile on his momma's face is priceless.

Merry Christmas.

Excellent production, Pierre! Love the opening and seeing everyone playing together. Great job everyone. So cool to see the Traveling Fiddle in a group project.

Merry Christmas everyone!
