Hello, No spanish i'm afra

No spanish i'm afraid...
I see only 1 error which is probably caused by the fact that you have 2 different mesh sizes.
This can be caused for instance by running a problem with a certain mesh (ie 4000 cells) then changing your mesh to another size (ie 210) and not deleting your previous solution. (there are other ways to get this error to i think)

Hope this helps...
