  1. Hi Anna, I will make a quick rhyme for you that is what I intend to do : Coldplay is nominated for awards once again their music by music(al) experts is praised without end That is great news indeed that is just what we need! At 22 o'clock from the dinner I was home again ready to listen to what Absolute Radio is going to send I almost cannot wait for that the long waiting is driving me mad! NANCY

  2. Hello again Anna, I closed the page I was on and kept having pages open - then I was asked: Do you want to close all tabs?" - so I guess that it worked, but I do not really know how it functions. When I have more documents and Internet open and maybe e-mail, I can see it at the bottom of my computer desk to the right of the green "START". But the various opened threads or whatever called "tabs" I could not see - I first saw them when I went back with the "go back" arrow. You had an EDIT with a "go advanced" option. But I could not see where that option was!?! Maybe I'm blind today. It is probably just me - I did not sleep many hours tonight (had difficulties in finding my bed - I really must be blind) and the builders in the area started drilling early - so I have headache and feel really tired. When out for dinner tonight I better drink water or only a little glass of beer to make sure that I do not fall asleep in the train (I have done that before - after a Christmas arrangement at work, when I felt rather dizzy - I guess you could call me "LittleMissDizzy") ! If I am not too dizzy or sleepy, I will listen to Absolute Radio? But it is possible to listen to Absolute Radio live and be on the board for "Absolute Radio Party" at the same time? I guess it has something to do with the toolbar at the top? NANCY I must do some of the updates so that the humanitarian pages do not die out / disappear due to no posts for 24 hours or so. If these pages die out - is it possible to revive them? EDIT: I just found the GO ADVANCED option.

  3. Thanks for the good tip! You see - I'm not a technical person, I'm better at rhyming, at languages and at collecting money for humanitarian causes. I tried - in vain to open more threads at the same time and at the same time having "new posts" page permanently open. I could select the second option "open in new tab" - mine was in Danish "Åbn en ny fane" = the Danish version of the same option. I did that, but nothing seem to happen!! Another thing - can you attach documents when you send a PM? And if so, how I noticed that you have two options two a PM : Reply or Forward. But "forward" normally means that you can send the document to another person so that person can also read what the original sender wrote. If the "New posts" option has 27 pages - is there a way to see them quickly - as you know I post updates on the 3 humanitarian threads (2 concerning help for the Philippines and one for Red Cross helping out in all affected areas. And it really takes time to go through all these pages to find the thread I want to update.

  4. Hello Crests of Daylight, Now that we are officially friends I would like to know your real name - And I have just posted a reply to your fine rhyme on "Talk in Rhyme". A little rhyme for you: You rhyming bee are really impressing me! NANCY

  5. Thanks for your email, Pete. I have decided to post the latest Red Cross News on the Red Cross thread every day. I posted today's Red Cross news on one of the Philippines threads, too. Is that a good idea in your opinion? Because if you approve of this, I could post Red Cross News there as well every day. Do you want me to post the Red Cross News on one of the Philippines threads eveyday? I can also send it to you as a PM or a visitor message. What do you prefer? Awaiting your answer. NANCY

  6. Hello Tonsu / Pete, I hope that you are alright - being so busy doing this fantastic job to support the Philippines and those living in the Philippines or having family members and friends there. I recently consulted the website of RED CROSS for the latest Red Cross news: Red Cross Responds as Part of Global Network to Multiple Disasters in the Pacific and Southeast Asia Red Cross Assesses Indonesia Earthquake Damage from the Air Red Cross Assists Flooded Communities in Philippines before Stronger Typhoon Strikes I hope the best - viva la vida (but fear the worst - or death and all his friends). Let's hope that the viva la vida part will prevail - meaning that I hope that the new typhoon and its consequences will not hit as hard as expected. My thoughts and my heart go to these affected by these natural catastrophes. NANCY

  7. Hello Lore, Yesterday a little before midnight I made my first new thread asking for help for RED CROSS because this international organization is overwhelmed by all these natural disasters within a few days. To the left of all threads there are some squares - some grey, some colourful, some of the squares are moving, some thread's squares are not moving. My post only has 2 replies and to the left there are four smal colourful squares moving. To the left of the remaining threads on that side the squares are all grey. What is the meaning of these squares, what's the meaning of the colours, what's the meaning of some moving, some not? And when I held my cursor on the squares to the left of "my" thread it said something about 2 replies. I tried to hold my cursor on the other threads' squares but there was no mention of number of replies. I would like an answer to this. Do you know the answer to my questions? Nancy

To you know the answer to my questions - I might also try to send a PM to LORE. I think that busybeeburns is busy, but I might also try him. NANCY

  9. Hi Pete, Some years ago (I think either around 2002 or 2003 Chris visited Ghana in Africa (and later Haiti) with Oxfam to see the Make Trade Fair issues for himself. Then Chris involved himself in this campaign. Maybe he was in Zimbabwe as well. But I think that the female presenter said in something about influence from his childhood. I sent an email to the presenter just after I sent the message to you. She has not replied yet - so I don't know. I could of course try the Oracle (but I am not optimistic that she will answer), but of course if you don't try, you will never know! NANCY

  10. Hi Pete (Tonsu), I thought that you might be the right person to ask this question: I heard this week's playlist on VH1, Denmark where Coldplay is currently listed as no. 14 (down from last week's no. 10, peak position 3 weeks as no. 8). Before playing the song, the presenter said something I have never heard or read about before: That Chris Martin was inspired to the rhytm of Strawberry Swing by his childhood in Zimbabwe (wasn't that Rhodesia before having as Prime Minister an Ian Smith)? I did not know that Chris Martin had spent some time in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) during his childhood. Do you know anything about this? Maybe it is a question for the Oracle to answer. But within the last year I have posted 3 questions without her answering any of my questions! So I hope that you will be "my Oracle" in this case. I thought that Ian / busybeeburns might be very busy with the competition rules etc. - therefore I am asking you instead of him. Have a nice day. NANCY

  11. Hi Raven 12, I have just sent you a "be friends request" in the hope that you'll accept. I have just come home from gymnastics / exercises and had a bath. Now I'm really hungry - and even more after having read that you had sauerkraut - uhm, love it. I'm not a typical Dane, because most Danes simply hate "Eisbein mit Sauerkraut", whereas I absolutely love both "Eisbein" and "sauerkraut". So now, you have made me even more hungry. I'll go and eat before Coldplay enters the stage with what I understand is a delay of about 15 minutes. But again: Have a nice Coldplay-related and -filled evening. Hope for a positive reply to my request and again: Thanks for relaying the tweets. You also wrote that you'll do the same at the Wembley shows. You're an absolute ANGEL. "Heaven must be missing an angel", sings the Eurhytmics. They might have been thinking of you. NANCY

  12. Hi Juliejulie, Endnu en gang tillykke. Og det er dejligt at have dig pÄ listen over venner. For lÊnge siden skrev jeg lidt med en Julie ved navn Clocks In My Place, men jeg er nÄet frem til, at der mÄ vÊre tale om en anden dansker ved navn Julie. Jeg klikkede pÄ Clocks In My Place og kunne se hendes sidste meddelelser (tweets eller SMS'er). Og de omhandlede stillen sig i kÞ til en koncert og sendt for 13 og 16 timer siden. SÄ det synes jeg ligesom ikke kunne passe pÄ dig. Endnu en gang tillykke - og hav en god dag og aften. NANCY

  13. Hej RoosAnne, Jeg har sendt dig en "Befriend RoosAnne" request. Jeg er sÄ glad for at Juliejulle og hendes ven vandt de 2 billeter til Wembley, og at Muzzy med den triste historie (blev pÄ grund af mavesygdom fÞrt ud af Manchester spillestedet samtidig med, at Coldplay kom pÄ scenen) alligevel kommer til koncert med Coldplay. Muzza var fortvivlet over ikke at have Wembley billetter, og billetten til Manchester var endda 18-Ärs fÞdselsdagsgave. Debs Wild sÞrgede for, at Muzzy alligevel kommer til Coldplay koncert pÄ Wembley. SÄ var der igen 2 billetter tilbage, og de tilfaldt Juliejulle og hendes ven. Det kunne ikke vÊre bedre. Men igen: Jeg har sendt en request om at blive din ven. NANCY

  14. Hej Julie, Endnu engang: Hjertelig tillykke - Jeg er virkelig glad pÄ din og din vens vegne, at I skal se Coldplay pÄ Wembley. Og samtidig er jeg glad for, at denne Muzzy, som pludselig dukkede op "out of nowhere" pÄ "the Manchester concert thread" med sin triste historie, ogsÄ blev en vinder, idet Debs Wild har sÞrget for, at Muzzy fik en billet til Wembley. PÄ denne mÄde var der flere vindere. Jeg Êrgrede mig over, at fik Muzzy den ene billet, kunne du og din ven ikke begge komme af sted. PÄ denne baggrund vil du forstÄ, at jeg blev ekstra glad, da der kom melding om, at Muzzy var sikret, for sÄ havde du og din ven igen en chance. Og sÄ gik I hen og vandt. HJERTELIG TILLYKKE. NANCY PS - jeg har sendt en besked med anmodning om at blive din ven "befriend Juliejulle".

  15. Hallo NoĂ©mie, Je voudrais ĂȘtre ton amie et j'ai envoyĂ© "a request". NANCY

  16. Hi Greg, You TRULY made my day! I am so happy that I am not the only one who immediately thought of this unfortunate person Muzzy - a person who I do not know - and have not seen posts from before. But his or her story was so moving that he or she deserves the ticket. Hopefully Ian will take this into consideration. It appears that you have not yet made any friends in the forum, so now I have sent a request to be your friend. And if Muzzy wins one of the tickets this would also make my day. I PM'ed Ian / busybeeburns about it. Hopefully he will act according to our wishes for the benefit of a good cause. A little about myself: Name: NANCY Nationality / Age: Danish, 51 years old Interests: Languages (have made translations involving English, French, German, Swedish, Norwegian and Danish - and by extensive use of translation tools also Dutch, Spanish and Italian). Music taste: ABBA (Mamma Mia), Beatles, Coldplay, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and U2 (via Bono and my admiration for this man and his humanitarian work).

  17. Wir sind jetzt Freunde, und das freut mich sehr. Und danke fĂŒr deine RĂŒckmeldung! Ich erwarte auch die Berichte der anderen mit Spannung. Jetzt werde ich sehen, ob "the Webside von NDR2, E (fĂŒr Event) etwas von Coldplay hat, wie der Moderator sagte. If so, werde ich - vielleicht (man darf nicht zu viel versprechen) eine Übersetzung davon machen. NANCY

  18. Gleichfalls. Ich höre zur Zeit NDR2 und von dort hat der Moderator (oder wie nennt man ihn) eben gesagt, dass die Coldplayers guter Laune waren (man hörte gleichzeitig die "Viva la Vida" oh ohs. Er sagte dass Bilder auf NDR2 , E (fĂŒr Events) zu sehen waren. Ich werde sofort sehen, ob eine Art Rezension? (Review in English) dort zu finden ist. Schlaf auch gut! NANCY PS - Ich möchte dich als Freund - jetzt wird "Strawberry Fields" am Rundfund NDR2 gespielt.

  19. Hi again, Ich habe Englisch und Deutsch studiert und viele Übersetzungen gemacht. Aber die letzten 10Jahre habe ich fast keine Übersetzungen gemacht, weil ich einen totalen Jobwechsel durchgefĂŒhrt habe. Es ist eine schöne Trainingsmöglichkeit, diese ĂŒbersetzungen zu machen. Teils bin ich Coldplay-Fan (und nicht nur Fan von Viva la Vida, sonder von allen Coldplay-Liedern), teils habe ich viel Spass, diese Übersetzungen zu machen. Ich mag von Coldplay zu lesen, und ich habe Übersetzungshunger! NANCY

  20. Hi Lucy! I have now voted for your wonderful contribution to the competition. I read another very good review consisting of part 1 and 2 competing with yours (and skimmed the rest of the contributions - all good), but I still find your contribution the best one. Good luck! When will you be leaving for Herning and are you staying at a hotel in Herning or maybe in lovely Aarhus - Denmark's second largest town/city with an airport some kilomenters outside of Aarhus? I would like to meet you (I live near Copenhagen) and have not bought tickets for Herning, because I saw Coldplay at the Roskilde Festival. A wonderful experience, and I must say that Chris is very good at pronunciating foreign languages (both Danish and French -with practi-cally no accent - that man is simply second to none). Danish have some words that are practically impossible to pronounce for a foreigner, but he can - I was really impressed. Danish reviews of the Coldplay concert at the Roskilde Festival were mainly good and positive, but the sound level could have been higher! The audience (more than 50,000 people) knew many of the songs - much to my surprise as Coldplay is not a popular band in Denmark among the youngsters! The week after the Roskilde Festival, Viva la Vida made a re-entry at the I-Tunes Top 40 at no. 20, and album sales went up from no. 36 to no. 19. So I find that Roskilde had a good effect on the band's album sales in Denmark. As to your appeal for a good picture to have signed by Chris: Have you arranged something? At Roskilde the anchorman asked for the time of sunset - replies by e-mail to be sent to [email protected] I don't know, but maybe this could be some help to you in arranging something so that you can get the picture signed by Chris.

  21. Hej Julie, Nej, jeg blev ikke overvundet eller vundet som fan pÄ Roskilde Festivalen, som var fÞrste gang jeg sÄ dem LIVE. Jeg har vÊret Coldplay-fan siden jeg hÞrte Viva la Vida fÞrste gang den 22.juni 2008, da singlen gik ind pÄ den engelske hitlistes fÞrsteplads. BANG, sagde det. Og jeg er ikke landet endnu. Den har hos mig samme status som U2's One og Robbie William's Angels - nemlig delt fÞrsteplads over alle tiders stÞrste sange - eternity songs, kalder jeg dem. 2.pladsen pÄ en rangliste over bedste Coldplay-sange gÄr til "In my place" efterfulgt af Speed of Sound / Fix you og Scientist. Videoen til sidstnÊvnte er efter min mening deres bedste. Hvad er din rangliste over Coldplay-sange og videoer?

  22. Hej Julie, Jeg hedder Nancy og var til koncerten pÄ Roskilde-festivalen den 5/7-09. En stor oplevelse, hvor jeg stod ved hÞjre storskÊrm. SkÞnt, at publikum var sÄ meget med - meget mere end jeg havde forventet pÄ baggrund af Coldplay's mindre popularitet i Danmark end sÄ mange andre steder. Roskildefestivaldeltagelsen har fÄet VLV-salget til at stige, sÄ pladen nu er sprunget frem fra en 35. plads til 19.plads pÄ albumhitlisten, ligesom titelnummeret er rÞget ind som nr. 20 pÄ I-tunes top 40. SÄ Roskilde har haft effekt. Jeg overvejer stadig, om jeg skal tage koncerten i Herning med. Hvad med dig, Julie?
