  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.

LPs with Hi-Fi on the cover

    Me and the system have survived the storm. I was looking at a bit of kit on the back of an album and thought: This will make a (good) thread.

    Here are a couple for starters, one of which is on the TT as I write.

    Jethro Tull - Songs from the Wood - SME Series II on back of sleeve.
    Art of Noise - Below the Waste - B&W Emphasis on the front of sleeve. I saw a pair of these in an emporium in Singapore a few years ago. Very pretty.

    What a splendidly geeky thread!

    The Jetstar compliation series used to feature (and credit) a Mitchell Gyrodeck up to vol 5. Sadly from vol 6 the cover underwent a naff redesign featuring a sprinkling of, you've guessed it, CDs...

    Morcheeba's Big Calm has a Transcriptors Hydraulic Ref with Vestigial arm and what looks like a Rotel reciever on the front.

    I think it's Billy Taylor or Cecil Taylor, it has a proper US style 50s amp on the cover, possibly other bits. One of you experts in jazz must know the album.

    Aha - but Morcheeba ripped off Ray Connif (what the HELL is HIS system - check out the size - it's a gatefold sleeve and the damn radiogram goes right the way across - you're only looking at about 2/5 the length of the thing:

    Note I didn't buy the Ray Conniff for the music - my mate Ali didn't believe me when I told her Morcheeba'd ripped their album cover off of someone else (I stumbled over the Ray Conniff in MVE for a ridiculous £15 and even I, as a Gemini, won't pay that much to win a bet - I got my copy for a quid in Oxfam instead!).

    Whale's "We care" 12 inch has a tape on the cover...

    Neil's heavy concept album (yes - THAT Neil - oh heavy man don't bring me down and hassle me Neil) has a ghettoblaster on the front - which has a timer and record level on it so almost counts as hifi :)

    Nuisance - Menswe@r - B&O TV on the cover
    Stone Roses remixes - Technics paint-spattered 1210 on cover

    I'm sure there's a CD I've seen that has one of those B&W horn speakers - not the Nautilus ones but the other type - but I can't remember what it's called.

    Ok, not a picture, but Nazareth:s Sound Elixir has a text that goes something like: "Linn and Naim sound system supplied by xxx". xxx I think was the then (still?) Canadian importer.

    On Dave Brubeck:s "A Cut Above" on Sheffield Lab, the artist is running around on a stamper disc (I think it's called that, it's the 'negative' disc that is cast from the master, the grooves are hills) with a special Stanton cart, designed to actually play this negative disc, hovering above him!
