  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.

Markus Sauer RIP.

    ..now that's shocking news from out of nowhere :(

    His friendly modest way despite his deep knowledge and experience was always an inspiration to me, probably most of us..

    My sincere condolences to his family.

    ..we spoke about unpacking his new phonostage in a post just days ago..
    I just don't get it.. :/

    You wouldn't have known Markus was ill from his postings, which I was always drawn to for his insight in any thread he took part in. Another huge loss for pfm. My condolences to his family. RIP.

    That's very sad news. I was aware that he was ill but having seen some recent posts here I was hoping there might have been an upturn in his condition. I was fortunate enough to have once visited him at his home. He was an excellent host there and always good company whenever we met in Munich.

    RIP Markus.

    This is a tragic loss. Even if I have never met Markus in person, I felt and valued his friendship on PFM. We are poorer without him. My deepest condolences to his wife and family. May you rest in peace, Markus.

    I have just heard the news of Markus Sauer's passing. I'm obviously shocked and saddened. Markus was one of the first people to welcome me when I joined the Naim forum over a decade ago, and he had been a forum 'mentor' ever since. I have never forgotten how supportive he was when I ran into some difficulties over something I had posted elsewhere in 2006.

    Rest in peace, Markus - you will be missed.
