  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.

    Any Byrds fans out there? Get the latest Uncut magazine. Its got a nice feature on the 64-68 period and a free CD of Byrdsian inspired stuff (Edwyn Collins, Replacements, Coal Porters etc).
    Makes me wanna track down those early LPs right now!

    I am!

    Roger Mcguinn was one of rock musics big inventors, Folk Rock, Psycedelica and Country Rock.

    I'm a little strange in that I think the 'Dr Byrds & Mr Hyde' is the best album. Particulary the closing medley. Typically then that the reviewers think different...

    The Byrds were all-round good guys, always very listenable. My fave tracks by them would be Hickory Wind and Eight Miles High.
    I would also take the opportunity to recommend a quite stunning album by Gene Clark and Carla Olson from the late 80s called 'So Rebellious a Lover'. It's long out of print so expect to pay around £25 on ebay, but it's well worth it! If you think you don't like country music this record might just change your mind! Ace!!
