  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.

Great service from Falcon

    Just a mention of Falcon who seem to have been very low profile this past year or two.
    I ordered some capacitors from them before Christmas which were promptly lost in the post.
    When I rang Falcon to sort out the delay a new set were sent out next day delivery and no problems.
    I recall them being difficult to contact and low stock levels a year or two ago but they appear to be back on form. Give them a try! Cheers Andy.

    Coda II getting there slowly

    Is that as part of AudioLoudspeakers? ie they have finished the transfer from Falcon as was under Malcolm Jones.

    I spoke to Paul Seado ( Falcon Components ) yesterday re some x-over inductors, they do custom windings, they are here:

    Malcomn Jones ( Falcon Acoustics ) has now retired although I understand that he is still doing some specialist winding, but don't quote me, some history:

    It appears that Paul is now supplying all x-over components and is very knowledgable and helpful.

    Indeed, audioloudspeakers is the link I used but searches for Falcon seem to lead to audioloudspeakers. So I'm not sure who is who but good range and service regardless. Cheers Andy.

    Hi Andrew

    Falcon Acoustics was the originl source for everything for the budding DIY speaker builder, this company was owned by Malcolm Jones, he has now semi-retired and does not offer any more components, Paul Seado is the guy at Falcon Components ( Audioloudspeakers), from what I understand Paul must have some association with Malcolm as the Falcon Acoustics site reveals this on the home page:

    The INDUCTOR Production side has changed to Falcon Components Ltd.
    sales@audioloudspeakers.co.uk


    hope this clears it up a bit ;)
