  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.

Mulling over raw rather than jpeg

    Huh? You made an analogy, I made one back in the vein of. I'm saying you don't need to shoot raw to make a great picture. Putting forward a defence of the lowly jpeg, which I feel can be likened to a film transparency.

    What do you think?

    I understand what you mean and you are right that there are some fantastic pictures captured as jpegs and some boring pictures captured as RAW. But this conversation is about what is the best format to capture pictures in.

    Back in the day I used to shoot gigs with transparencies and get the lab to push them at least two stops. And Radio Luxembourg used to disturb my homework.

    Now there's an expression I rarely hear these days. I must brush up on my digital literacy as concepts such as curves, CA fringing, dynamic range and countless other manipulations are rather foreign to me.
