  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.

    Some sort of terrier cross breed, full of energy, never slows up and always on the hunt.

    We got her from a dog rescue place and all they could tell is that she came from Ireland.

    The future is transparent screens hanging in mid air.

    pfm is not unique in having truly dreadful avatars (but it is an exemplar of what happens when The Men In Beige get to choose.)

    Maybe that should be 'Rock is hoping', Russell:) Hope things are improving up your way. I'm so amazed that I accomplished something digitally different that I'm minded to have a different avatar every month. As this is my 'Sunset Strip' month, I'd better find/take a suitable photo

    Does anyone else think 'secretary background' sniffs classist and possibly sexist? I could call the horrid eyestrain-inducing black backgrounds 'geek-gothic,' but that would be a rude attack based on nothing but a narcissistic view of the importance of my personal taste...

    If dark background/light text was suited to prolonged detailed scanning, most websites would feature it. The masses of eyeballs seem to have spoken otherwise, though. Dark backgrounds seem to be relegated to amateur and subculture stuff. Dashboards and other equipment-operating contexts are different, one does not read masses of text on them typically.

    Now if you compute wearing sunglasses, you do want glowing text, of course.... :cool:

    if french cuisine were all that, most fast food places would feature it.
