  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.

    Yep, looking forward to the final series starting this week.

    Also, Motherland starts its first series this week, after a very promising pilot.

    Brilliant! Many thanks for the heads-up. Strange that such a popular series should be stuck away at that time on BBC4 though.

    We just watched the first two seasons on Netflix. I thought it was brilliant. Far more subtle and thoughtful than I expected. Looking forward to the new one as well.

    And I fancy a detector....mustn't go there...

    And even more strange that it's actually on BBC4.

    One of the best comedies of all time IMHO.

    I loved the first two series. A truly funny but utterly relaxing and gentle watch.

    And Rachel Stirling lights up the screen whenever she appears.

    Wonderful stuff.

    Great, gentle, comedy which amply rewards the engagement with the characters and story lines.

    Only discovered it when both series were repeated this year - too distracted by other things to pick up on the first showings. Bought the DVD to cheer up a sick relative (not in the UK) who also loved it. Great acting - the main players, McKenzie Crook (depth of talent as the writer) and Toby Jones, Rachel Stirling - in particular.

    Apart from W1A (brilliant, exactly!), not much comedy on the BBC grabs me these days. The Apprentice used to be a good fall back, but for some time I’ve been finding it just a bit too cringe worthy!

    Such gentle humour, beautifully paced, tbh I'm surprised it was even commissioned.

    Probably because from the BBC perspective of their 'Head of Output' :

    “The fact is this is about identifying what we do best and finding more ways of doing less of it better,”

    ;)
