  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.

    Fabricating a custom Printed circuit board is not always an option for hobby electronic enthusiasts. Either it is because of the fabrication price or the over kill setup for a simple need. The PCB designing is time consuming compared to the DIY PCB board.

    I am based in Blandford Forum, Dorset at the moment but I will moving to Maidstone, Kent during 2018.

    In the garage I have a pillar stand drill and a guillotine, folder, bending machine.
    In the workshop I have a bench power supply, DMM's (one with USB output), Fluke 4 channel scope, frequency generators, Peak component analyser, Peak LCR meter, soldering station, etc.

    I can make basic PCB's (using iron-on transfer method).

    I can assist with most things (would be nice to actually meet someone else who has this hobby).
