Your question[edit]

Tempo of "Moonlight Sonata"[edit]

When I heard the first movement of the piano sonata, Op. 27 No. 2 I thought it was being played far too fast. Later I bought the DVD and played director Bernard Rose's commentary. He said that it was much faster than usual but that it was originally written that way and has gradually been played slower and slower over time. Does anyone know if there's anything to this? Having listened to this recording a number of times I still find it a little hurried, but now it seems like most versions are agonizingly slow.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Beetfarm Louie (talkcontribs) .

I see where you are coming from, that was the one part of the movie that stood out the most to me. It was the fastest I have heard it played. But after study it is still considered Adagio (Slow). So with that being said it probably has slowed down over time to the Largo speed (very slow). The sonata has been played by many different people but 9/10 times it is played slower than what was heard in the movie. In my opinion the best version is Alfred Brendel he is somewhat in the middle between the Largo and Adagio. I play the sonata alot and I usually play it slowly. I hope this ansered your question.--Arjun 03:26, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Two-dollar bills at Best Buy[edit]

You recently edited United States two-dollar bill, but I cannot find anything in the cited article (or its links) to show that the two dollar bills in the Best Buy section were sequential. Please cite this or remove it. —ScouterSig 15:10, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

It's on the Snopes.com page with the Taco Bell story. It's at the bottom of the page. I added a citation.--Beetfarm Louie 05:03, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Nonetheless, police were summoned when a Best Buy employee noticed that the ink on some of the $2 bills was smeared, and after one officer noted that the serial numbers on the bills ran in sequential order, Bolesta was handcuffed and taken to the county police lockup.


Josemaria Escriva[edit]

Good point, Beetfarm Louie. Thanks. The problem is the lack of quotation marks, which I fixed now. The whole quote is taken from Ratzinger. See this [[1]. Cabanes 09:39, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Charlotte Winters[edit]

I think you missed the point. She was the last surviving female American veteran of WWI.Ryoung122 00:37, 23 February 2009 (UTC)


I think you're right. My appologies. --Beetfarm Louie (talk) 00:40, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 17:28, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Popular views of archaeology[edit]

Disambiguation link notification for May 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Civil War (TV series), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Oliver Wendell Holmes (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Not sure how to respond to this in a way that anyone will see. I linked it to the disambiguation page because it originally linked to the page for Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. The reference in the article is to his father, Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr., but there is no Wikipedia article for him.Beetfarm Louie (talk) 13:58, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
