  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.

    They really are very nice indeed, you can't tell them apart, packed well too.

    mudlark nearly half a clue

    er, not really....If someone with a chrome amplifier wants an identical case then, well some modification is required and so they, er, aren't identical...

    I was referring to the dimensions and the finish. If you want it to have the CB shiny edge, you should use a sanding block and some medium grit sand-paper to sand the back paint finish off one end (which is, essentially, how Naim achieved it).

    The packing, were it to be made available as a separate product, would be a good replacement for people who need to ship their Naim shoeboxes and have lost the original boxes.

    Yes it would. No one would pay the price though.

    I see the sleeve w/sled is now listed on your eBay store, but will sleds be made available separately for those of us who have already bought sleeves? Thanks.

    I would PM Andrew directly with this question, as he may not see it.

    I suspect the answer is 'yes' though.

    I bought ssome recently and they are excellent. The packaging too is superb and I will keep it for future use - usually I just bin that stuff.

    I used Ynwan... lol, 3mm laser cut acrylic.

    Does he have one of those Jame Bond villan type lasers then?

    I assume so. I asked him to cut me a front plate from acrylic and he came back looking slightly damp and smelling of shark-bait. I'm unsure how the part was actually produced, one can only guess at what actually goes on inside his 'workshop' (evil lair). I feel confident that it did involve sharks and lasers though...
