  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.

    That brings back memories, thanks!

    I guess the climate helps them to survive well enough

    thanks, they're are virtually on every street corner, a joy to see...tho, there are some that are ill, and there's a real skinny one that was walking around in circles and unable to see or respond to anything... was heartbreaking to see... we bought it some food and water but it never responded apart from falling onto my foot :( (that's the real skinny one lying next to some wet food :( )

    we googled it and it seemed it may have had a brain seizure... :( poor thing... not sure how long it had been like that either, or how long it would have lasted for...

    Mrs C recognised most of them from her recent visit! She spent most of her time there feeding them too.

    but, yep - you have to feed them...

    I love cats, but one or two of those could give you a nasty dose of toxoplasmosis.

    Are they all stray? Some look very well fed and there's one with a collar.

    the one with the blue collar belonged to a pub (and that photo was taken from the pub window) -

    this one was in a shop doorway -
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/weardaleone/37859628606/in/album-72157686535210272/ and looked well... :)

    this one was near a cafe and the woman there spent ages stroking it :)

    this one seemed to be a stray - but came to the hotel to stay haha and the staff took it back outside the first night after it came in - but it came back every night afterwards... it was adorable and the only cat I stroked...but then i was drunk haha..
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/weardaleone/37878059172/in/album-72157686535210272/

    this was on a table in someones back yard - and it had just woken up as I got my camera out :)
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/weardaleone/37877060212/in/album-72157686535210272/

    the rest as far as I could tell were stray as they were hanging around bins, cafes and the old town - with a couple in lindos (and the boxed cats in symi island)

    these kittens were defo stray as we tried to feed them but they hid away (but, fed the mother and some older siblings) - and the mother must have moved them as they weren't in the same spot the next day...

    Great set of photos there Alan!

    I went with a few friends to see this a couple of months ago...a lovely, warm film, highly recommended to fellow cat obsessives :)
