  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 like Rise in Worcester, my local city. Rise is a smallish shop but they manage to squeeze in a lot of vinyl and I'm often surprised at their eclectic selection. A decent range of CDs and a few books as well. The staff are friendly and approachable and the shop is family-friendly - it's in a shopping centre so I can quickly "pop in" during family shopping trips, plus it's clean and tidy unlike some record shops... It's a little brother to their store in Bristol which often has live bands. There's also one in Cheltenham although I've never visited that one.

    Rise is 5 mins walk from Worcester Foregate Street station, which is 45 minutes from Birmingham.

    Cobb Records in North Wales?

    Not as big as it used to be but still larger selection than most..

    Rise is mostly new stuff - although I picked up a couple of Japanese issues of jazz recently that are excellent.

    There is another record store in Worcester, 2nd hand dealers - Market Hall Records, upstairs in the Gallery, off the Shambles. Excellent cheese shop on the same complex.

    'Expanded? They must be doing well either that or they are very brave in these grim times...

    Grim times ... says who !

    Vinyl purchases are the highest they've been for years ... FTSE at record high and the UK about to leave that dreaded institution the EU !

    Like a dog of a lead - like a prisoner let out of jail !!!

    The UK is only moving one way and that is up.

    This morning The Guardian online announced FTSE as being at a record low... something to do with North Korea and a hurricane...

    Hello from another Worcester resident! Nick @ Market Hall is a nice guy. Have you ever been to Carnival in Malvern? Good second hand and new store for both vinyl & CD.

    Piccadilly Records in Manchester gets most of my cash. It's too tempting working in the city centre.
    Today: Chris Forsyth and the Solar Motel Band "Dreaming in the Non-Dream" new and sounding good on vinyl.

    Had a 'diggers dream moment in there this weekend where someone had sold a ton of 90's electronic stuff - heaven!

    I spent some time in Carnival during a holiday in the Malverns a couple of years ago. Excellent shop.
