  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.

    I've always liked the verse from 'A New England' by Billy Bragg, 'I saw two shooting stars last night, I wished on them but they were only satellites. It's wrong to wish on space hardware, I wish I wish I wish I cared'.

    And also from 'Annie. I'm Not Your Daddy' by Kid Creole and The Coconuts. 'If I was in your blood, you wouldn't be so ugly'.

    Manhattan - Rodgers & Hart, first few lines ...

    Summer journeys to Niagara
    And to other places aggra-
    vate all our cares
    We'll save our fares

    I've a cozy little flat in
    What is known as old Manhattan
    We'll settle down
    Right here in town

    I don't know the artist or song is it, but there was a punk rock ditty with the refrain

    "I don't care, I don't care, I got long hair and I don't care"

    Which I like.

    Could be by AYLTP or someone like that.

    Rasher Quadrophenia land

    Red ribbons hang in a Tennessee square
    Old people laughing and singing and dancing down there
    I'd like to join 'em, but I got no money to spare
    So I sit here and watch from the porch
    Drinkin whiskey in granddaddy's chair

    Ryan Adams really is a rare genius


    Laura lays on the foot of bed, mimics the news with the telephone cord
    Doctor's on the phone, then she hangs up and says; "I ain't never gonna see the winter again"
    And I don't know how, but she smiles

    Gaius Trade: Stiletto by Tangerine

    I do like him, I was playing him earlier, very dark, like the anti John Denver.

    Superb song writer greatly missed.

    "A mes yeux elle est nickel à mes doigts je peux pas dire"
    (rough translation: to my eyes she's fab, to my fingers I can't tell).

    From Alain Bashung's song Martine Boude (opening line: "Martine me dit je veux pas qu'on m'aime mais je veux quand même") on the album Play & Blessures that contains quite a few other little gems.

    I pasted this from a lyric site, but isn't it -

    But you won't want to look in the box when I'm through"
