  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.

    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.

    That is a good price. I bought the 10CD 'Works' boxset a few years ago for £50, which works out at £5 per disc whereas this is only £3 per disc. Good find :)

    Otto Klemperer - he has died 40 years ago so there are loads of box sets to be had at excellent value.

    I just spotted this one for instance. At £9.99 for 10 discs you can't go wrong really. It should be compulsory to buy it, Klemperer is Klemperer and he deserves to be known by every music lover.

    I just ordered this Eagles vinyl boxset from Amazon for £64.50 delivered. I remember seeing it at £62 pre-order and held back because there wasn't much info available at the time then sure enough, the price shot up to £84. Lady luck shines again though because I had another look and there was one available at £64 delivered. I'd already read great reviews about the boxset and knew not to hesitate too long.

    The strange thing about it, or perhaps not so strange, is I started an online chat with Amazon a few days ago asking why items such as this particular boxset and vinyl in general are rarely discounted by much, if at all. The guy could only reply that items in 'My Basket' will always reflect the current price. I now wonder whether I should start another conversation asking about the Can vinyl boxset pricing to see what happens lol.

    Anyway, despite buying what I thought was the last boxset at £64,50, there appears to be one more at that price. It might not be a bargain boxset, but compared to £84 delivered, £64 delivered seems more like a relative bargain. :)
