  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.

    What a shock - I didn't know him other than through his postings here but a true gent and both very helpful and knowledgeable.

    May you continue to hear sweet music in another place....

    We both had our first child at the same time. Spent a lot of time talking about the 'change'. Devastating news for his family. RIP. We'll all miss you Markus.

    Re-Joyce ... Jason H that is.

    Terrible news.
    Markus was a man I massively respected, always fair, a gentleman. Only meeting him once was not enough.

    My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

    Gosh I'm shocked. I only knew the on-line Markus and I didn't know he was unwell, but we will all miss his wisdom and calmness here.

    So thanks Markus, and my thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time for them.

    This is terrible news. My deepest condolences to his family.

    Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Markus, I really enjoyed reading his posts. I always thought of him as progressive, open minded and an all round nice guy.

    He will be missed

    He was always a calm voice in a sometimes very noisy place.
