  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 just wish I'd had a camera with me one morning in the mid nineties. As I drove through the busiest part of the metropolis that is St Helens, I spotted a single cone in the middle of a three lane road. It was the sole protection for some bloke whose head was sticking up out of a manhole..............

    Mr C, does it have a story? My interpretation is that its from a viewpoint like a bridge and the cone has been tossed away and then decorated with random flowers.

    I like it,

    I used to ride my bike from Kenton to Gateshead just to go up that car park and whizz down the ramps without braking once - unless you were a wimp of course.

    An afternoon trip to Hastings. Amongst other things I spotted SSB mooching around the pier (too far away to attract his attention) and these cones obviously off for a good night out

    Nikon D3 etc

    Hey, you should have come over and said hello!

    The big fun down here is tomorrow: the Jack in the Green parade and thousands of motorbikes for the Great South Run. I'm off into the countryside to miss the crowds.

    mr. car.

    at last.

    i'd be seriously tempted to try that with on B&W film (the cones don't really add much and would not be missed--lack of colour would essentially make them irrelevant). as always, a nude blonde with big hair would improve things considerably.

    is that block called thacher row?


    vuk.
