  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.

    Cool. I'm playing a bunch of Factory 12" singles at the mo. Off to the True Faith exhibition tomorrow.

    They played a clip of Tony uttering these immortal words on Six music this morning - absolute genius.

    True Faith exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery is worth a visit. Free entry. The shop however may get you in the pocket!

    Indeed, the shop took me for £90 last week!

    I'm guessing both albums and the big book!

    Yup. Albums as a cynical investment strategy, I won't be opening them (I've got originals).

    PS I sat down and watched the whole grainy black and white JD gig footage (40 min). The highlight of the show in many ways.

    I probably will open them despite having originals. Can't resist.

    Sorry for slight thread diversion (I will listen to the OPs link later)...the reissue of Closer is very well done, great attention to artwork and printing detail and it sounds damn good.

    Power Corruption and Lies is disappointing though...the roses on the front cover are faded in comparison with the original and the whole coding thing is messed up by back of the sleeve not being cut out! Inner sleeve isn't exactly the same either. Sound-wise not a patch on an original.

    Is the Closer cover and inner matt card like the original? I can't tell through the shrinkwrap and I'm not opening mine! I noticed the PC&L wasn't die-cut and thought that was rather lazy given the price tag.

    Yes it is. The only difference is the printing credit isn't Garrod and Lofthouse. It's also very white in comparison to my original!
