  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 have tried the Entreq offering. Didn't actually like what it did, but what amazed me was it made a difference at all.

    A cable that runs from a spare RCA to a standalone box of dirt, WTF.

    Why are you surprised that attaching an aerial to an unused input makes a difference.

    i'm guessing your inputs aren't lifted for gnd and signal by relays when switched off.

    Apparently the Nordost QX2 or QX4 can prevent your TV pictures being flat and two-dimensional. An amazing achievement!

    It's a common mode choke in a box and an led with its own smps. Holy shit that Nordost box is pure bullshit.

    Alan is a very decent bloke, I've met him several times, though sadly there is no intellectual rigor or cross-referencing to that review the way I'd expect in say Stereophile or TAS. If he can hear a difference, and I'm not going to argue that he can't as I'm not an arrogant tosser, then I would like to understand why, i.e. the existing earthing on his system needs to be properly assessed and the product under review put on the test bench to see exactly what it is doing.

    And above all, compared to just running an earth lead using basic house wiring cable.

    And would I be an arrogant tosser to suggest that non-physical causes might be one possible explanation, and maybe even suggesting the results need to be independently verified before being taken seriously?
