  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.

    Rare and Racy on Devonshire Street in Sheffield used to be a great shop for all things jazz and beyond. Magazines (Coda, Wire) CD's (Tzadik, FMP, Incus) second hand books of all description (Philosophy, Politics, Literature, Classics). Walking in on a Saturday they could be playing anything from B.B. King to Sun Ra. Great local improv scene too. Tenor saxophnist and bassoonist Mick Beck is the real thing. I remember a great gig with Pat Thomas on electronics and Paul Hession on drums (at the Grapes, another amazing Sheffield institution) kind of like a free blowing Blue Note organ session, with little instruments and all. Sadly, last time I heard R&R were in trouble.
