  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.

    Scroll down for a pic of a very distressed Garrard 301 in an abandoned Brum cinema.

    but how about a couple of the horn loaded speakers, 2 pictures down, for the home cinema room?

    Those horns could be something very special, shame they’ll be ruined.

    Shame, I went there a number of times when I was a lad.

    More pics including close-ups of the 301 here

    What’s the bet we see that 301 on eBay after someone pops back to ‘liberate’ it?

    Beneath all of the dust, it's probably not as bad as it looks.

    That platter would take some buffing up!

    Re: Arc extractors. Arc projection lamps, arc DC rectifiers or both?

    Those look like Altec A1 or A2 horns.

    The piece was written in 2014.

    But the 28 Days Later piece (linked in post #4 above) was written four years earlier... if the photos in the two pieces were not taken at the same time the 301 wasn’t liberated in the period between so perhaps it’s still there. However, I suspect all the photos came from the same source and were taken in 2010.
