  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.

    ooh these Beatles LPs sound nice - I don’t think I have heard a single click or pop on them :D

    I do love ‘I need you’, guess thats George Harrison’s guitar?

    Sounds like a rather good find.

    I’m not complaining at £1.98 for the pair! The labels have spindle marks and I can see scuffs/scratches - but they don’t sound, I guess records were just manufactured better back then. Hard to believe these discs are 50 years old and still good to go.

    Definitely a result.

    I have found that the records pressed in the sixties and very early seventies are so much more robust than later offerings.

    Mono, it's just a sideways wiggling groove... ;)

    In addition all this modern heavyweight vinyl isn’t without it’s issues at the pressing stage re temperature - get it wrong and lots of noise.

    You certainly 'dropped on' finding any Beatles vinyl in a charity shop. I thought everybody knew that all Beatles vinyl is now worth millions.

    Help! was released 50 years ago his week!

    I'm about to buy a CD copy at the weekend as part of my ongoing mission to buy the entire Beatles catalogue in order exactly 50 years on from the original release dates.

    So far, so fascinating to hear the change in style between each album with the time interval since the last release in real time for perspective.

    Thanks Jonathan - I didn't know about the anniversary.

    You really should get the LP!
