  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.

    A few from Scaledown #133
    [​IMG]Hand of Stabs by Pete, on Flickr

    Scaledown is usually the last Friday of the month at the King & Queen in Foley St. Normally 5 or 6 acts doing 15 minute sets - free to get in, though a hat is passed, eclectic and usually something well worth catching. This one stretched from Drone to Opera to folk. FB link to this one https://www.facebook.com/events/123579061638928/
    Next one is the 15th December.

    Not the usual aeronautical scene to welcome me on a Monday morning.

    For some reason I can’t see your images I just see the [​IMG]tag.

    I’ve tried disabling my broadband filters etc. but to no avail.

    The army had a Remembrance Day event over the weekend, so the Wattisham museum provided the Phantom and Hunter as backdrops. The Hunter was one of the Black Arrows that set a record of 22 aircraft in a loop in 1958.

    Wattisham museum? I didn't know there was one. Is it open to the public, or in the army jursidiction?

    The F4 looks very smart. The Black Arrows were based at North Weald, my place of work. The Hunter that so tragically crashed at Shoreham lived there, was always a joy to see.

    This is what I see, it's the same on iphone, iPad and Mac.

    If I click on the image box and select open in new tab it opens a dropbox page but that doesn't display either. Curiously it downloads the jpeg at the same time and displays it in a preview window....

    This is really perplexing, it occurred to me to turn off WiFi on my iPhone and retry to see if my BT broadband is somehow blocking dropbox but I still get the same issue. I've tried my Windows laptop as well and get the same result. So it's not my broadband and it's not a iOS / OSX issue. I'm stumped.

    The Wattisham museum is within the base, but one sunday per month, if booked, the public can visit. I'll try and find more info, but unless you're local I wouldn't say it's worth a special effort. One of the guys at work is involved with it, so if I remember I'll ask him tomorrow.

    Edit: info here http://www.wattishamstationheritage.org/index.html

    I can't see eternumvitis' images on my works computer (all other images are visible). I can however see everything on personal pcs, laptops & 'phones. My guess is the photo hosting site, which I assume is not flickr, possibly getting blocked by a firewall or similar

    Superb! I really like this eternumviti.

    I really appreciate the vote of confidence and kind words! That means a lot. I may have to start compiling / curating images when I'm off over Christmas. I've got an idea that I've had in my head for a while but it won't be until I put the images together with a proposed layout that I'll be able to see it it 'flows' or not.... quite excited!!

    I really appreciate the advice. Always looking to learn. I like the idea of painting the frame.

    I've been playing with the Pro2 and macro today having decided that the new Fuji 80mm is far too expensive. This is my old Olympus 80mm / f4 (at f8 I think) on the Oly Auto Bellows, with a cheap Meike ring flash. The text on the lead looks pretty sharp at the edge. This Karat is on my WT Amadeus GTA (it's at times like this you notice the dirt and corrosion!)

    I think eternumvitis' images are hosted on Dropbox and therein lies the problem although I'm at a loss to figure out what it is on my system that's blocking them.
