  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.

    Apologies if the site wide announcement has been made, I can't find it so think the just giving link deserves reposting.

    I made it a fixture in the charity room - it is pinned at the top and can remain there as long ad the link works.

    Truly terrible news.

    I spent a happy evening baking off transports and Dac's with him many years ago.

    He'll be greatly missed.

    Wow.

    This is sad, my deepest condolences to his dear family.

    Like vuk wrote, from day one on the Naim forum, this is, what, 17,19 years?

    Amazing thing is he asked me how I was a couple of months ago, when I posted in pinkfish after a few years, and I replied that during a football match I felt generally bad and went to hospital and to my astonishment was diagnosed with a mild heart event (NSTEMI I believe is the term).
    Cliff replied that a mate had a mild heart attack and that he sometimes thinks he is at risk, and tries to get fit, eat the right stuff etc.

    We concluded Joe Hart was god in that Barca-City 1-0 match.

    This is so sad. RIP Cliff.

    Please be aware that a bad unexpected weakness and chest uneasiness (no need for very specific symptoms), esp after some effort, at our (>40) age requires immediate rest and hospital check.

    Even if you start feeling slightly better, go and have it checked then, within 5 hours of event, to be able to determine what it was.

    Omer.

    Shocking and sad news. Sincerest condolences to his family.
    I have shared quite a few pints and discussed the relative merits of 'blads, Mamiya, Olympus, Nikon, Fujis etc, over the years as we both work in the city.

    Sorry to hear this :(

    I got a Naim Hicap off of Cliffpatte waaaay back in 2006 (the day of the Pink Floyd gig in Hyde Park IIRC) and he seemed like a great guy and with good musical taste. Bit of a shock this to be honest...
