  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.

    I'm not sure I could get any enjoyment or any intellectual stimulation out of a bunch of lying thugs who are causing misery to thousands and endangering lives.

    It just makes my blood boil and I'd like to see them lined up and made to suffer to a similar degree.

    Yep same here. It saddens and horrifies me that so many will vote for a party that they well know will cause such great harm and suffering to those already struggling just to put food on the table and keep a roof above their heads.

    The "I'm alright Jack and screw you" brigade, who will happily see the poor, the disabled and the mentally ill etc suffer even worse so that they can keep on having 4 holidays a year and run 3 cars from the profits of their BTL portfolios I find beyond abhorrent... and I'm putting it mildly to avoid potential AUP breaching levels of spleen venting there!

    Unless we get the Corbyn government we so desperately need (and ASAP), and some major wealth redistribution, I fear for the fate of societies most needy and dispossessed people:(

    Re the Universal Credit vote -

    The Conservative MP, Sir Edward Leigh, also criticised his own government's tactics, saying: "What worries me is that surely there is some sort of precedent here..... this is not and should not be a university debating society.

    "What is the point of the House of Commons if we just express opinions for the sake of it? Surely when we vote, it should have some effect."

    Remember they reclassified the state pension as a benefit now though, so that'll be where the extra generation has come from. :rolleyes:
