  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.

    I know, I couldn't resist it. I was rattling round Decathlon in Saumur on Sat, they have Trocathlon every 3 or 6 months or so, game is you bring in your old tat and they knock it out cheap and give you vouchers forwhat it fetches. Winner. I went round the shop and bought a T shirt and a wind top (oo-ee, big spender) then had a look round Trocathlon. Nothing worth getting, superannuated skis and dogeared jackets, and a single speed bike. Ooh. Looks like a MTB frame but it has 700c wheels. OK. Decent bits (including an XTR rear mech as a ghetto singly conversion) with new, albeit cheap, wheels. Eu 40. Go on then. It's a nice machine for hacking about. The frame is a Nakamure Lyqid, doea anyone know about them? I've never heard of them, the parts were worth Eu40 if I threw out the frame, so I bought it knowing that I have decent frames at home. Any ideas?

    Nice score. Never heard of it. I'm in Germany for 4 weeks - if I could find a deal like that I'd be all over it. Any ideas as to where you can pick up a cheap used bike? Getting it back would be an issue so I may have to write off the expense.
