  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.

    Sitting in ticket corner for me at the moment:

    23rd November, Seun Kuti with Fela's Egypt 80, Jazzanonva, Matthew Halsall at Kentish Town Forum

    Bit of a dilemma: a lot of the things I go and see are at Cafe Oto. But as I also volunteer there I'm not sure if it would be OK to list them in this thread or whether that might be construed as sneaky viral marketing (not my intention!).

    Crack on I say; particularly as I missed a Jan Jelinek gig there, as I knew nothing about it (razznfrazzn mutter mutter).

    I was pondering that as well; but I was disappointed with his last album.

    Very tempted by Biosphere but it would be quite a big deal for me, travelling up from the Midlands, overnight accommodation etc. Sometimes I really miss living in London...

    Not too impressed with N-Plants but he has released some good download only stuff on his website recently.

    If you like that sort of thing, this looks pretty amazing. Thomas Koner, Biosphere, Philip Jeck, Fennesz...

    For now I will have to make do with:
    John Williams & John Etheridge, 14 Nov, Malvern
    Lau, 17 Nov, Bristol
    Kate Rusby, 12 Dec, Malvern

    Thu 11 Oct - Savages - at Electrowerkz, Islington.

    They are the first great new band I have come across in a long time.

    Savages are a 4-piece all girl group. Their debut single, 'Husbands' / 'Flying To Berlin,' was released on vinyl yesterday.
