  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.

    Sainsburys launch own record label starting with Bob Stanley curated 20-track compilations called Coming into Los Angeles and Hi Fidelity. The first, labelled “a taste of the west coast”, includes tracks from The Monkees, The Mamas and the Papas, Arlo Guthrie and Fleetwood Mac. Hi Fidelity resurrects more crates in the attic classics including Roxy Music’s Avalon, Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells, 10CC’s I’m Not In Love and the immortal Van der Graaf Generator’s Theme 1.

    The record covers are pretty cool, I picture bearded hipsters picking these up under cover of darkness along with this months edition of Shindig!

    Sainsbury's cut corners with food, so I wouldnt be surprised they did the same with recorded music.

    Are these yet another loudness wars 'hot-rodded' 16 bit remasters that are converted to vinyl?

    If so, that is the worst of both worlds.

    Suggest staying away from vinyl until this craze subsides - good quality LPs well priced will return if consumers force a correction. In the interim, there are tens of thousands of cheap CDs to rip...

    Leave crappy record store day amid tins of sausage and beans to those that deserve it. I honestly wish some days I had ditched vinyl in the 80s.

    One headline read:

    “Sex ‘n Drugs ‘n Sausage Rolls” - made me smile anyhow.

    Bob Stanley knows his pop music.

    Hopefully M&S will respond to Sainsbury's challenge "This isn't any old vinyl ..."

    Or maybe an M&S 'Listen in for Two' offer where you get two albums for the price of one.
