  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.

    Very different. First listen tonight.

    Love it. I think it's a refreshing departure, but still with Mike Scott's songwriting genius. Very intimate portraits of love and memories...

    I'm liking it more.

    It's just getting better and better with each listen. Even though it's a departure in sound - a lot more soulful and funky - the songs are some of the best he's ever written, I think...

    I must say that Brother Paul's Hammond playing on this album is superb. Especially on The Memphis Fox

    Yes, I agree - he really grooves. And the Dublin Soul Choir are a great touch.

    Growing on me here too, can't help but hear Bono in some of the phrasing in a few tracks (not necessarily a bad thing in my book).

    A bit "Dream Harder" also (not necessarily a good thing).

    Will keep listening.
