  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.

    I am genuinely very shocked and saddened. Cliff has been part of the PFM community since the start and was always a valued contributor. I only met him once in passing at a hifi show despite living quite close to him in SE21. RIP.

    This is dreadful news.
    I met up with Cliff several times in London for a beer and a chat. He will be greatly missed.
    Thoughts are with his family.

    Very sad news. Cliff was always friendly and helpful. Although we never met, the many photos he's posted of himself and his family in the photo room makes his passing feel very personal. My condolences. He will be missed.

    I am really shocked and saddened to hear this news. I knew Cliff through the forum and he was previously a customer too. I met him face to face a couple of times in the last few months in the Cat & Canary when I was working in Canary Wharf and he was fun and interesting company. The photo room in particular won't be the same without him.

    My sincere condolences to his wife and family.
