  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.

Minolta X570 manual SLR

    An oldie but well regarded cameras in their day.
    This has manual and semi auto modes and is in excellent cosmetic condition.
    In size, weight and operation these remind me a lot of the Olympus OM series.

    This has sat on my display shelf as a bit of an ornament, since my plan to delve back into film photography a few years ago never happened. I have 2 of these and this is the nicer example.

    Never shot any film through it but the functions appear to work - the shutter delay responds to changes in speed and aperture settings as you would expect, and the shutter responds to light levels. The led viewfinder display also works as it should.

    I've no idea what it's worth - so lets say £50 including a Minolta 135mm f3.5 lens, UV filter and £5 parcel post.
