  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.

    Makes me want to listen to my original LP version now, unfortunately my deck is still packed away after this years move :(

    Might have to buy this...

    He's a hero of mine! So sad he had a stroke a few years back, which disabled him from playing guitar anymore.

    Yeah I pre-ordered both the Vinyl and CD about a week ago.

    DC are my all time favourite act.

    I already have the original vinyl, promo flexi disc, Factory CD and Factory Once CD Remaster. So this new release won't give me any new music - but I feel strongly that we should support great artists like Vini.

    Is there any information on the master tape? Would this be a digital or analogue source?

    Pretty sure it was a DAT master. In fact they actually released a DAT version!

    Thanks Tony. Was about to press buy now but will have a further think

    I heard that he was still playing after the stroke, just a bit restricted. Apparently Vini also has arthritis, so he is struggling

    The original Factory vinyl sounds great to me, so I’d not worry too much. Never heard the original CD though, keep hoping to stumble over one at some point when out shopping. I think New Order’s Technique, which I’m pretty sure was digital too and from around the same time, sounds wonderful on CD, better than the vinyl IMO.

    Oh well, that's great to hear! It seems he's always been on the brink of achieving some kind of success but ended always on the indie side of indie, which is a shame. Being the musical director (and apparently main composer) on Morrisey's Viva Hate without being credited properly didn't help either.
