  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.

“The Taxi Cab”

    I have a track on a compilation tape given to me a while ago and its called “The Taxi Cab”.

    The track is heavily orchestrated and sang by, what may be, a middle-aged New York gentleman who describes, in intimate detail, the residence of a wonderful woman with “a bed that’s big enough for three; one of her and two of me”.

    However, after describing this beauty and her abode, he reminds us, with wonderful bathos, that "me, I drive the taxi cab”.

    I would like to find out who “he” is.

    I just know someone in Pink Fish-world will be able to tell me and put me out of my angst, please.

    I have tried the search engines but no luck so far.

    Cheers,

    Try the Gracenote CD Database. I find it a brilliant source for just this type of query.

    Thanks for the link Mick, I know I'll use it in the future but it can't help on this occasion.

    Cheers,

    This is still bugging the hell out of me and, as there are many new members these days, I was wondering if anyone can help.

    Ta.

    Seems its probably a version by Mort Shuman for the film "Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris"

    Well found that man, thank you.

    I wonder why this link didn’t come up from my search engines?

    Anyway, this puts a nice lid on it and I can sleep at night again. I may just go get the DVD as I like the sound of it.

    My Brel education will have to wait as I have spent ages trying to find a CD soundtrack or DVD version of the film with this track on. It seems that it was one song that got cut. I can only imagine that the others are something else.

    Chris, I really appreciate the knowledge.
