  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.

    ...cos I need your help.

    I sold a pair of proac sc1s recently and the guy collected this morning only to call me and say one of the tweeters wasn't working and he was returning them. And correct he was but they were definitely working a week or so ago when I unplugged them.

    Now of course there are 2 options; it the tweeter or the crossover and I was wondering if anyone nearby might pop over and have a look for me so I can decide on the best plan of action?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    There is an easy little test you could perform yourself, you will need to remove the wires from the back of the tweeter and connect a AA or AAA dry cell battery across the terminals, an old battery from a remote is ideal for this application.

    The + lead of the battery goes to the + on the speaker and the - of the battery to the - on the tweeter, but you should only briefly touch one of the battery leads to the tweeter terminal while leaving the other lead connected, if the tweeter is knackered it will remain silent, if it is a goog un you will hear a little pop/tik sound, but remember do not leave both leads from the battery connected to the tweeter terminals for any length of time :(
