  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.

    AFAICT, I think he wanted a speaker that did better at low listening levels.

    I'll be interested to know the answer to this one myself.

    You want the truth? You're not ready for the truth.

    Aliens will take over the world in 2012. In order to do this they need to break our spirit and weaken a number of institutions.

    Global warming, international terrorists, erosion of the international financial system, volcanoes, earth tremors, flooding - all are just the start of creating global unrest.

    In addition - a number of key institutions that provide comfort and succour are under attack.

    The aliens abducted Tony's Tannoys and replaced them with Harbeths. Tony had false memories implanted explaining their disappearance. These memories were cleverly constructed around questions Tony had in his mind - building and making use of the paranoia. But. They were not quite good enough. Tony has been remembering. He realises that something is wrong and is trying to put it right.

    Be afraid.

    So much kit about, so little time...

    potentially greener grass

    Tony needed some adventure and risk in his life

    Became accustomed to the sound and didn't appreciate what he had..

    No wonder there is so much divorce in the world:)

    Hope you get sorted Mr L, atleast you'll be richer in knowledge.

    Do not listen to the Ribee. He is spreading disinformation to create confusion and sow doubt.

    Our understanding is that Tony was experimenting with facial hair and grew himself a goatee. This evil Tony — basically the regular Tony, but the exact opposite — sold the Tannoys.

    Go to batshitcrazytheories.com. It's all there in lucid detail.

    The mods have chipped in to buy Tony an electric razor so this never happens again, and I think we should all be thankful he didn't sell his records for iTunes gift cards.

    Funny enough that a old friend saying when he talks about his changes in his hifi equipment. You seam to move on step back or side ways. Got rid of his IMFs because taking guts out his Radfords, then then get a high power 100 watt amp later on. Some his moves he says agh he replyies.

    Perhaps it was a case of bilocation?, 'Good Tony' was at home happily munching rich teas and listening his trusty Tannoys, whilst 'Evil Tony' decided to visit the Hifi dealers and squander a wad of cash on a brand new set of Harbeths.

    My money is on string or membrane theory. There will be plenty of universes where this never happened. I blame physics.

    My bet is a slight mid-life crisis. Next, hookers, porsches and a trip to Vegas ... 'out with the old and in with the new' etc.

    So we need to return you to the Tannoy universe, thats gonna take a shit load of energy and some serious cabling - I think we have people on hand who can 'bodge it' but we may need a roll of 'wankonium cable' for the job ....
