  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Joe Hutch Can you hear Talvin Singh?

    He personifies the reason record shops are a dying institution, the opinionated knobhead.

    Haha. I've met this guy before, he's quite a character. Loves to pontificate about music, audiophiles and records.

    I can't stand hipsters myself (most of them are poseurs) so I can relate.

    Oh dear! He reminds me of a guy who had a music shop, hoarded 250,000+ records but wouldnt sell to customers. He would charge 50p for questions and would offer a taped copy. I think it was a shop becuase it seemed more like gatecrashing a hoarders den.

    He just wouldnt part with anything unless he had six copies and you begged him. Music should be out there with those who really appreciate it. He admitted to me once that he was a bit mad.

    Much of it ended up getting damp and being left with a landlord after a court battle. He was crafty so Im sure he rescued some of it. What a bloody waste though!

    A hipster often wears a Savoy Brown t-shirt.

    "You wanna walk me home from school"
    And I said, "Yes, I do"
    She said, "I don't have to go right home
    And I'm the kind that likes to be alone
    As long as you would"
    I said, "Me, too"
    And so we took a stroll
    Wound up down by the swimmin' hole
    And she said, "Do what you want to do"
    I got silly and I found a frog
    In the water by a hollow log
    And I shook it at her
    And I said "This frog's for you"
    She said, "I don't like spiders and snakes
    And that ain't what it takes to love me
    You fool, you fool
    I don't like spiders and snakes
    And that ain't what it takes to love me
    Like I want to be loved by you"
    Well, I think of that girl from time to time
    I call her up when I got a dime
    I say, "Hello, baby"
    She says, "Ain't you cool"
    I say, "Do you remember when
    "And would you like to get together again"
    She says, "I'll see you after school"
    I was shy and so for a while
    Most of my love was touch and smile
    Til she said, "Come on over here"
    I was nervous as you might guess
    Still looking for somethin' to slip down her dress
    And she said, "Let's make it perfectly clear"
    She said, "I don't like spiders and snakes
    And that ain't what it takes to love me
    You fool, you fool
    I don't like spiders and snakes
    And that ain't what it takes to love me
    Like I want to be loved by you"

    His ideals are solid, but his salesmanship is crap.

    I'll bet his parents died and left him a shitload, otherwise he'd sell anything to anyone in the grand tradition of capitalism.

    Speculative buyers? See 'em coming, and jack up the price! (hehe) Japanese used to do this in the 80's, and still do, I'm sure.
