  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.

ZZ Top - Original masters?

    Old chestnut this one, but, as one that has already been stung on this, can anyone absolutely confirm if this 10CD set contains NONE of the truly, truly horrible mid 80's Bill Ham remasters of their first 5 albums ?

    I've got nice UK pressings on vinyl, but would like decent lossless digital copies of the full set.

    If so, that's a heckuva bargain. (If not, it's a high price to pay for an ugly set of drink coasters.)

    Item purchased. My interest stops after the first six, but I've been living with crappy remasters (the "6 Pack" set), so the net effect is I've listened to no ZZ Top at all for several years.

    Cheers all. I also love their first six albums. If anyone's interested, I've since discovered that this box set is also available over at HD Tracks in 192/24 - although at the slightly less competitive price of £304!
