  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.

CDs 'slipping' at spinup in CD3.5

    Hey folks, I wonder if anyone has had this problem before...

    Sometimes when I pop a CD in the cd3.5 and close the tray, it spins up but makes a kind of farting noise as the CD appears to slip and it doesn't read. The display says 'ERR'. If I open and close the drawer again, it usually reads fine without farting or slipping (or maybe a little fart, but it still reads!)

    Thanks guys,

    It's your puck - the little rubbers have compressed (so the disc slips) - try rotating them slightly; take a close look, it will become obvious.

    Some discs are thinner than others at the hub, too...

    Ah, now that makes sense, yes. I'll give 'em a whirl tonight, thanks Martin.

    I use a small piece of plastic foam under the puck when it happens. Just a couple of millimeters big.
