  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.

    This is, considering the source, quite possibly the single most bizarre quote I have ever read:

    "Oasis, Blur, Pulp, Suede, Elastica, blaring out of everywhere, I loved all that Britpop thing," he chirps. "I even liked Ocean Colour Scene. But I drew the line at Menswear! We'd go to the Britpop night every weekend. A lot of us [the band] even met there, listening to Oasis. We still blast Be Here Now on the bus. All Around The World, Girl In The Dirty Shirt, Don't Go Away, every song is amazing. I read it got some bad reviews ... "

    The album which was only ever loved by Liam - and now you.

    "Just Liam and me!" he roars, delighted. "Right on! I love Liam, man, he's a fucking superstar! He's a bad-ass, y'know?"

    Sid and Coke and so the rebuild continues..

    I accidentally* played Be Here Now yessterday for the first time in about 3 or 4 years. I probably won't play it again for another 3 or 4 years.

    * accidental because i thought i'd picked The Masterplan fom my vinyl record rack, but decided to play it anyway as i couldn't be arsed walking 5 feet back to my record rack.

    What the hell was the record company thinking when they recorded the early Oasis albums, There is no dynamic range at all. My CD Player has flourescent level meters on it and they peg themselves at 0dB and don't move again until the CD has finished.

    eh ? If you actually believe what you say , you must surely be the most deluded and misguided person within a ( at least ) one thousand mile radius.
