  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.

NAS drive / i-tunes mp3 query.

    I have a NAS drive which I stream from with a Cambridge Audio streamer.
    I have an external hard drive with some vinyl rips to mp3 which was used on i-tunes.

    Can I just copy the mp3 files from the external hard drive to the music folder of the NAS and play via the streamer?

    Is there any software to associated LP covers to the mps files that will be retained on the NAS? I have JRiver but it is not very intuitive.

    If it's any good the CA should be looking for new files as they are added to the NAS and will then index and get cover art.

    JRMC does this but I think you have to tell it to scan real time

    Just tried a copy and the CA has found it and is playing the mp3. No cover art but that is not a biggie.

    Not sure automatic cover art recovery works on home-made LP rips - probably depends on how well you added metadata to your files.

    When I have no cover art for my obscure music, I just copy the picture from discogs or elsewhere on the net, place the picture in the same sub-directroy as the music files and rename the picture file "folder".

    Probably not very...

    Tried it. Didn't work. Not to worry. Ta.

    Well there you are: in windows explorer - right click on the mp3-then select Edit ID tag
    Then my dbpoweramp ripping software intervenes with its add album art option-load from internet or local file.
    Pictured copied from Discogs now appearing on streamer with playback.
    Thanks again.
