  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.

    Do you find the speakers work OK in the bay window ? I had a similar room layout in a previous house and just couldn't get it to work at all like that, there were all sorts of holes in the bass response, boom etc. In the end we swapped things around and put the sofa in the window and the speakers on the opposite wall, big improvement.

    The flat is currently in the process of being torn apart by Bengal kittens:

    so rugs and soft furnishings are removed until they learn how to control their claws!

    Awfully clever designs nowadays; speakers posing as paint-pots :D (Do hope you're putting in a dedicated feed while you're about it).

    That's really very nice BenS, can I ask what the coloured shelves are from and if they hold CDs?

    As the owner of matching stereo cats, I feel that your mark twos have the edge; also the youthfulness !:)

    Thanks, they are cd units. They came from Aram store on Drury Lane. I'm afraid I can't remember the manufacturer. I love the look of them - like a mini Don Judd!

    Must say my noise floor is wonderfully quiet now, but it obviously needs a carpet. And yes, there are three independent circuits. One dirty for transports, lamps, appliances, and two for the analogue electronics of each system in there.

    Ahhh. My sister has a Bengal, and indeed they are a handful! He constantly meows too and it is not a soft soothing sound either!

    Cute cats; we have two Bengals as well. Lovely and loving, albeit overly energetic cats. Give them plenty of scratching alternatives, and force them to accept getting their nails cut on a regular basis. Our male will now gladly sit in my lap, present his nails and politely meow for them to be cut. The female is a much more difficult case.

    in my room the speakers are Castle Conway 3's. (slightly modified)

    the room kind of has to be this way around at the moment. I agree that there are holes in bass response, and imaging is a problem as well. But theres no possibility of it being the other way around.

    I'm likely not going to be living here for more than a few more months anyway, so its just a temporary solution

    daveofbradford Monica I said sack my cook

    Built up over the past year. The amp is an Audio Space AS-2i at about 12w per channel I think. The DAC is an Abrahamsen with balanced and unbalance outputs, USB input A-Sync. Now the speakers I bought from Ebay, but the guy who made these crackers lives near in Huddersfield so I popped over listened to them with some of my music and took a chance that the sound would open right up after burn in, and it did in spades. They are a DIY design front ported with a very high quality crossover. I am not sure but I think he said that they are inspired by ProAc but hey imho they sound great for the dosh.
    If I get the opertunity to meet at a local bakeoff I will take the gear to see what the guys think. Anyway all this lot was obtained for approx £450.
    All the music is from my PC using foobar2000 and installed plugin WASAPI for output to DAC.
