    Ok, I guess nobody knows these answers. #1 - The little man's name was General Tom Thumb, a famous midget who worked for P. T. Barnum of the Barnum and Bailey Circus. Barnum brought Tom Thumb (real name Charles Sherwood Stratton) to Paris in 1845 and they visited George Sand at the sqaure d'Orleans. Delacroix and Chopin went over see him too.

    #11 is Bartolomeo Christofori, the inventor of the piano.

    So...game over and there's a tie between Chaotic and Kschyschtoff. Guess you guys will have to fight it out or maybe we could have a piano play-off? You could each submit a recording of your playing something short and we have to vote on the best one. (I'm kidding, I don't care who wants to go next, as I think everybody who has been playing has taken a turn. Let me know if I am wrong)

    Yep I was sure it was Cristofori too. But I could not find the image of that particular piano on Google image search. Should have voted anyway :x

    Make the next quiz if you want. I'm still busy with Glinka and Beethoven so I'll make one another time.

    Okay, Kschyschtoff - You go. And can you do it fast? I'm kind of bored this week.

    Every time I sign on, I'm hoping to see that someone has started a new game. Alas, it looks like it's not going to happen unless someone just does it. (not me this time) Come on, everybody. We need some more fun around here. Somebody start a game!

    I would if I had a larger collection (my only attempt sampled every record that I own). I would also start one if I had a .pdf "slicer" ( a neat tool which allows to crop sections of .pdf files and save them as .jpeg photos).

    I guess the game thing was like bell-bottoms....a fad soon forgotten.

    I need a few days to arrange some clips. (Fun-making is fun.)

    Windows Vista is weird.

    Oh Hi, Pete. Long time no see. Glad you're back.
    I have Vista, too.
