  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.

    Loved this

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musicblog/2012/apr/11/newsnight-odd-future

    both the wonderfully disdainful Newsnight report and the trying to be hip Guardian commentary.

    This makes me feel like a 50+ should feel about youth culture. Don't get it but admire it for being there and having such attitude.

    ( "When he asks what the band are trying to say, Tyler, the Creator just sneers: "Nothing. Shit to piss old white people off like you." LOL!!)

    Is this what the '60s felt like to those born in the 1910s or '76 to those born in the 1920s ?

    (And aren't the kids well behaved these days? )

    Smith had my full sympathy dealing with the underclass scum he was interviewing.

    My dad felt that about Bill Grundy!

    I did feel Smith was risking infringing on Louis Theroux's copyright. It was all a bit faux - as was Grundy I suppose.

    And while I'm coming over all Paul Weller, I, personally, feel a lot less pissed off by their "Shit to piss old white people off like you" that I do by X factor/Pop Idol/ etc etc

    btw: Just for fun I think we should all declare our ages when commenting on this thread

    I was 4 when the BBC set the (actually rather remarkable) cigarette smoking music critic Hans Keller on Pink Floyd:
