I think if this :dill: doesn’t close you’ll just take over your agent’s house while they find a nice plot of grass to lay down under for the rest of their lives.

It was marketed in the 1950s and sold for about $255 at that time. The reason it is sideways is that the whole mechanism rotates so you can type notes upside down.
Very :neat: , definitely :waxer: !

I guess that was what you had to do back then, times have changed quite a bit Imageol:

I am guessing these were mostly sold to shop owners or others in the business of selling sheet music, perhaps universities as well. I assume most people just wrote sheet music by hand in those days, when a music type writer was as much as a Miata.
I'd never seen anything like this, really cool.

I assume as well that it's largely a tool for people writing books of music like for textbooks. Big orchestras or theater companies could also use something like that to make scores?

When I sang with a men's chorus a few years ago, the pianist was incredibly musically gifted and would score music specifically for the chorus when an arrangement wasn't available. Having something like this before computers would probably be :mindblown: for that dude, cause he'd be writing each by hand otherwise.

So, the good news is you're not going to be under a time crunch other than your own when it's time for the final move. I HATE the pressure of moving over a certain period of time. Like if your house closed a day or two before your leases ended, that's a REALLY stressful few days to move everything fast. With stuff in storage, you can get the house in order first (clean, paint, whatever) and slowly move things in as you need.

Copying scores by hand used to be a real job, long after the printing press made regular books available en masse. I'm :notsure: when sheet music became available in print.

Small market, it was probably a while after the printing press because music shares next to nothing with normal text.

Yeah, just need to not over stay our welcome at the in-laws… Plus I’ll have a 160 mile round trip commute.

Well yea, YOU will want to move as quickly as possible, but at least you're not being forced.

Before I knew this was my last week, my plan was to work a half day from home on Friday. Asked my supervisor today about doing the half day here at the office before I head up to my parents’ place for the weekend, but got shut down. Looks like Thursday is my last day. Bummer to miss out on those extra four hours of pay, but I’ll have a nice relaxing Friday morning at home and not have to worry about packing the night before now.

Having Friyay all the way off is 5/7 IMO. Worth the 4 hours of pay.

Oh yeah for sure. Will feel nice to sleep in a bit and have more time to get stuff ready to head north. Traveling while prepping for this competition is a pain in the dick.

Yeah I’m thinking about doing that. Probably will now. Friday is usually my rest day from lifting, but if I train Friday, I can have all of Saturday with my family while I’m up there instead of needing to go hit the gym for an hour or two during the evening.

That is pretty standard attire at my workplace. I had to go into the office yesterday to train a new to our team lady (she was promoted from a Customer Service Supervisor role). We have met in passing over the few years I've been at the company, but this was our first time working together. She went suuuper casual, like frumpy stretchy jeans and a tee. I think our company's office culture is almost tooo casual. She is an ace for the role though, definitely will be one of the easier new hires to get up and running and I think she will knock it out of the park with sales.

Nice!

I generally just do jeans and a polo here. Most of the people in the govt that I deal with now wear jeans and t-shirts almost every day, so I’m hoping that the team I’m going to is similar. I don’t mind throwing the polos on here and there, but t-shirt most days would be awesome.

I actually embrace the shorts at the office thing when it's warm but generally opt for a shirt with a collar. It's just funny at my company, so many people are in sweat pants and stuff, it looks like they are lounging more than working. :iono: I guess I'm just :okboomer: with my thoughts that people should dress up slightly :lolol:

I agree, suit when you're in an office seeing only your coworkers is :butwhy: Sweat pants and a stained white tee is too far in the other direction :doe: I think jeans can look very nice and are suitable workplace attire.
