1. 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, can anyone explain why Radio 1 needs to exist financed by a compulsory tax on owning a tv?

    J River is an excellent media player - arguably the best if you don’t use Qobuz or Tidal - and they have a Raspberry Pi image which you...

    Since your DAC2 is worth around £800 why don't you sell it, buy a £70 Topping and trouser £700?
