  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.

Classical Brits? WTF?

Discussion in 'classical' started by Mullardman, May 18, 2010.

    TBH, this is the first time I've watched this.
    Just seen the opening by Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orch. What a load of nauseating tosh that was! I think Mr Rieu qualifies as the James Last of Light Classical.

    It's improved a bit. Angela Georgiou, is currently knocking out a belting 'One Fine Day', but overall there seem to be a few too many of the currently popular . 'Groups of Blokes Singing Opera' type things lined up
    I may switch over soon.

    Joe Hutch Can you hear Talvin Singh?

    Anything with the word 'Brits' in the title is shite by definition.

    I'm not going to disagree.

    And Mrs Mull has just invoked the clause which says I get to use the PC, but she gets to control the TV remote, so we are now onto Bridget Jones.

    Why me Lord? Why me?

    Mrs Hutch owns the Dell laptop so that she gets to watch that thing with Graham Norton and Andrew Lloyd Webber on iPlayer. Fortunately there's an excellent hifi in the top floor office/study.

    There is an excellent, nearly all valve hi-fi in the lounge. Unfortunately, also present are the telly and Mrs Mull. I'm in the 'Dining Room', which is a walk through from the 'lounge'. I have an integral garage, which has never seen a car for about 30 years. I keep telling myself I'm going to brick up the door and knock an access door through from the 'lounge', or the dining room, put my system in there and live in peace for evermore, but it won't happen.. it's just a fantasy......
