  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.

A thread to recommend decent movies on Netflix / Amazon Prime?

    It is almost light relief from living in the UK under the current Tory government.

    One of the other producers of the series is David Fincher. Among the films he has directed are Fight Club, The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

    Just finished Manhattan on Prime. It revolves around the development of the atomic bomb in Los Alamos. A bit implausible in places, but enjoyed it none the less.

    There are two seasons available. There was meant to be a third, but it was cancelled by the studio.

    The Space Between Us on Amazon Prime; a well-written, albeit, almost cheesy at times take on the orphan boy meets teenage angst-ridden girl genre - if such a genre exists. Feel good film from start to finish :)

    Really? I thought it was awful, and I am pretty undemanding when it comes to Sci fi (if it has spacecraft, I'm probably going to like it). I remember some big plot holes in it which really made it untenable. Teenage girl fodder I'm afraid.

    Just signed up to Netflix to watch Alias Grace. Well worth it. Obviously I'm still in my free trial month but I'll look over this thread to see what else I might like on Netflix.

    I'm very much enjoying mind hunter on Netflix.

    2 episodes into The Sinner which investigates why a woman in full public view would brutally murder a random guy, and it's very entertaining. Great central performance by Jessica Biel.

    Chasing Trane. A documentary on Netflix about you know who. One or two odd contributors - there’s a philosophy professor who looks like he’s straight out of central ‘eccentric’ casting, but enjoyable none the less.

    Finished watching this tonight. Very good. Recommended to anyone who enjoys police investigations and motive hunts.

    Just started Brain Dead on Amazon Prime, which looks to be that mid-point between The West Wing and Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers we’ve all been searching for. A really nice touch is the ‘Previously on Brain Dead...’ recap at the start of each episode is in song form.

    Started watching The Rolling Stones - Crossfire Hurricane on Netflix. Looks good fun so far. Dick Cavett in the Stones' dressing room pointing out to Jagger that there were plates of pills and white powder being passed around. "Vitamins and salt", Jagger replies...

    Bill Pullman is also terrific although I kept thinking "I wonder how long the series will last before it gets killed off by sexual harassment allegations".
