  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.

    Watching it now. Pretty boring really, iPhone 8 looks like an iPhone 7 but with more CPU/GPU power and a better camera, better screen res and colour etc. No big screen, it still has a home button and screen bezel. Wireless charging is the only big feature so far...

    Ah, damnit, I fell for the "...one more thing..." thing, there is an iPhone 10 too, and this looks like the fancy high-end thing we were expecting. Full screen etc...

    The watch can now function without the phone. I think you still to own an iPhone. Might be more useful now.

    iPhone X facial recognition... ...can't just take a finger now, need the whole head.

    I'm only glancing at the Mac Rumours highlights.

    I wonder how they see their market split between 8 / 8+ and X? The two models kind of muddies the market for the iPhone users who must have the latest...they haven't mentioned the X price as yet though.

    iPhone X from $999.

    iPhone X (entry model I imagine) - $999 - as for the GBP, I dread to think.

    But not available until November. I quite liked the new watch. I've not bothered with them before but being able to use it as a phone makes it completely viable now so I might be tempted.

    £999 I suppose.

    TPA, Ditto on the watch, looks almost like the real deal at last.

    Might be around that - the UK price will include 20% VAT.

    1159 € for X. prices already on Apple websites. They're slick, Apple.

    Watch is 449€ for the lot - not bad, really.

    Yep and the heart monitoring for arrhythmia would be worth every penny. A full year of angst, specialists, operations etc for Mrs C might have been prevented or at least picked up earlier..

    £1149 is a bloody stupid amount for a phone, but I have to admit I do want one! Thank you Tory Brexit for making it 20% or so more expensive than it should be...

    Exactly. It's not as if Apple put their prices up regular as clockwork every time a new model comes out ...

    They actually don't, the iPhone 8 is pretty much the same as the 6S I bought a couple of years back IIRC. The difference here is $999 should be about 700-750 pre-Tory Brexit £, but the exchange rate is now so terrible due to the Brexit collapse of Sterling we get to pay about 20% more for imports. This isn't just Apple, have a look at what say Nagaoka cartridges cost and the iPhone X looks positively good value! This will only get worse as we spiral down the economic shitter, i.e. as soon as we lose EU trade area status Ortofon etc will rise to Nagaoka/Apple levels.
