  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.

    Whilst searching unsuccessfully for a cheap Van Der Graaf Generator box set I found 5 Orbital CDs for £8.99 may interest other fishes.

    Cheers for the link - if I didn't have them all already I'd have jumped at this.

    Thanks for the link, just bought it!
    I lost the only few albums I had years ago, will be great to have all the early stuff!

    Whilst checking up on "um, weren't their more than five?" I found they have a new one just out after eight years - so thanks for that.

    (Any the new one is the eighth, so there are some more - plus a slightly dodgy soundtrack)

    I really like the new album. It's great to have some fresh new music from them. The album has recaptured the excitement that made them so great in the 90s. I'm glad they haven't faded into irrelevance or mediocrity. I thought their last live performance at The Big Chill in 2009 lacked a certain something with no new material. I thought the "Blue Album" was a bit limp.

    Despite already having every album (except The Altogether, which is CD only) on vinyl, I bought the 5 album set for iPod and in car listening and have been rediscovering those great early albums.

    You may like to know they are releasing a limited edition 7 inch single of Wonky for record store day. I will be in the queue for my copy.

    Sound fine to me - upto date I've bagged The Weather Report, Mahavishnu Orchestra and Soft Machine sets.

    Orbital and Santana next on my shopping list.
