  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.

    I used to work with a guy who was in the process of collecting every version of DSOTM released in every territory on every format, he reckoned at that time (pre Discogs) there were over 1500..

    How does that work, then? All Amazon stuff used to be postage free but I lost interest after they put the £20 limit on.

    Awaiting first impressions of s.q., as I'm suspicious of newer reissues.

    I was about to buy this and then realised it comes free with my prime music :p

    You pay £76 a year, and for that you get unlimited next day postage, and some other perks. So not free so much as massively subsidised, if you buy a lot of stuff from them

    Won't be buying . . . still got an original copy from my younger days. :D Haven't played it for years - has it traveled well? Seem to remember it only worked with (a) a wonderfully naive mind (b) a darkened room and (c) some illegal substances (alcohol optional).

    Well actually Mike it’s a slightly smaller catch at the moment as Amazon Prime is available on a 1 month’s free trial basis. Just cancel it anytime prior to the month end. It’s quite useful if you tend to use them fairly regularly.

    Cheers.....Dave

    The title track is good, the rest is filler. But hey, this is Pink Floyd. I got my copy. Nice and heavy, lovely new sleeve etc, cant wait to give it a spin.

    Seeker_UK Crumpets. I can hear crumpets.

    I bought 'A Nice Pair' many many years ago (with the 'Dr Phang' cover) and it was always the 'Piper' LP that got played most because it was a bit more up-tempo than 'Saucerful' and with more guitar work.

    Over time, the preference has swapped with 'Saucerful' the one I play more. It has more atmosphere than 'Piper' and it's where they play as an ensemble than Syd + backing band. There's a certain laid back, almost cosy feel to the album with tracks like 'Remember a Day', 'Set the Controls' and 'See Saw'. My only regret is that it's not longer but there's always 'More'.
