  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.

    Hey man - There is lambswool under Theos naked feet. The wool is soft and warm, - gives off some kind of heat.

    You need to be powerful when you want to pick the CDP up - haha! Wicked build quality & finish from Rega on their reference stuff though.

    I am a big believer in powerful amps into efficient speakers. It's the sense of ease and effortlessness that comes with that combination and which allows the system to render the music more realistically.

    Yes I am referring to the Art Pepper set out on Pure Pleasure which is not really THAT expensive on per disc basis (within the price range for your typical audiophile reissue). IIRC Laurie Pepper ('Widow's Choice') has reissued the same set recently on CD for a very low price. I'd be surprised if it's already out of print.

    Thanks Theo - yes, the piano's sounding really good. A lot more headroom and resonance too, a lot louder than in the living room and with a richer bass. :)
