  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.

    Hi Pinkfishers,

    * Money donated to Oxfam
    * Starting bid £40
    * Highest Bid to this thread before 10pm on Thursday 26 Jan wins.
    * Collect from Oxford or local delivery possible.

    A nice pair of Royd Minstrels available to collect from Oxford UK (or I could deliver within a reasonable radius or meet half way).

    These belonged to a friend’s mother in law - very much a careful owner. My friend wants these to find a good home in return for a donation to Oxfam so I suggested someone on Pinkfish might like them.

    They are small floor-standers with own MDF 'stands’ or platforms with spikes. I fired them up yesterday and they sounded pretty good - plenty of bass, absolutely lovely vocals, good pace and rhythm. The bass/ mid drivers don’t seem to have the ‘gummed up’ problem I’ve read about.

    The black cabinets are good - some thinning of the stain around the edges but sure this could be touched up with a marker pen- otherwise one or two surface scratches but I think these have had a very easy life.

    Includes a couple of lengths of QED 79 strand or something of that ilk.

    I don’t know how much these are worth - how about starting bids at £40 for Oxfam. Will go the highest bidder on this thread before 10pm on Thursday 26 January.

    Thanks for looking.
