  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, actually. Listening to Radio 4 this morning, everything I stated in my post has been confirmed, albeit grudgingly by the opposition.

    But not after he was given the responsibility for overseeing the takeover bid, Darryl. He appears to have played it by the book.

    he is lying through his teeth.

    his stuttering, blinking, lying is sickening.....

    he said he supported the bid but then got independent advise to ensure people wouldn't think he supported the bid.....he has been caught with his trousers down and he'll be gone by next wednesday.... to much evidence of him being in the pay of the media barons....he'll be hung out to dry.

    I'm all for a fair trial, even for Mr Hunt. But the unthinking, uncritical support from the Tory back-benchers following Hunt's statement represents all that is wrong with politics. My party, right or wrong is not in the best interests of the country.

    chris bryant has dropped a bomb.....raising a point of order at the end of the hunt session.

    cameron has lodged his meetings in the library but it only has one meeting with big murcock on the list.....he also verbally confirmed this.

    murcock has just made claims on the levenson enquirey that he met cameron on another load of dates.....lying in the house is a massive no no, cameron may have a shitstorm on his hands now if it proves he has lied.

    though Jezza himself appears to admit:
    "Jeremy Hunt admits links between adviser and News Corp 'clearly not appropriate'
    Jeremy Hunt has admitted that communications between his adviser and News Corporation executives were “clearly not appropriate”."

    Yes he did. ISTR yesterday on R4 PM mention of the fact that he was advised a face-to-face meeting with Murdoch Jr was not allowed so he declined to meet (ie by the book) but went with a 'phone call instead (ie by the book if not keeping to the spirit of it).

    Thankfully Steve Bell is far too excellent to be labelled a national treasure.

    I think your politics are clouding whatever consideration you might normally have for what is usually called "natural justice" - something evidently lacking from most on this forum in this case.

    You might hate Jeremy Hunt - why I don't really know other than he is a tory - but he has denied wrongdoing; he has not been proved to have done wrong; he has not resigned, but in the court of pfm he is found guilty.

    Surely that's enough. Anyone who reads PFM knows that all Tories are totally ignorant about everything from global warming to the price of milk. They also care only for feathering their own nests and those of their public school buddies. Not that it matters much because, as everyone who reads PFM knows, Cameron and co. will be out of power (and probably in prison) any day now.

    I share your experience-reading this thread is more and more akin to swimming upstream against a tide of corrupt filth. If I clean my goggles I can just about see Jeremy, he's about five yards in from James Murdoch's back entrance but heading for it. Should be out by morning.
