  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.

    Looks like a GM vehicle? Chevy Caprice with a 350?

    Blimey. That's worrying!

    Yes, from memory a 1978 Caprice. A great engine and very smooth transmission as long as they're both looked after. Terrible boot/trunk, but enough space for two blokes and their scuba gear.

    Older yes, but the charm is still there.

    Me, Graflex Anniversary Speed Graphic 3¼ x 4¼

    Edit: not my camera. It belongs to one of our young apprentices who I've only just found out is a keen film photographer and camera collector. ISO3, anyone?

    Excellent stuff Tony, i've got a much simpler Crown Graphic (without a focal plane shutter) which is a wonderful camera.

    Nerd fact - the vertical handle for the flash is the original part which formed the basis for the lightsabre in Star Wars.

    Funnily enough, Arthur (yes, he even has an old fashioned name) mentioned that and says that so many were converted by Star Wars fans that they're a little scarce now.

    One of the rare moments when I found myself in front of the camera!

    Lefty is too young and good looking for pfm ;)

    Haha :D

    You guys got me when I was very young and still in University! I was hooked on Naim and was thrilled to discover a corner of the internet where I could geek out with like minded folk. The years have marched on and my HiFi days are behind me, but PFM remains and I now find myself living happily in the Photo Room :)

    Me, yesterday, after cycling home far too quickly in the heat. I overtook a scooter going downhill, and forgot to back off for the rest of the journey. Plonker.

    Huge respect for being out on your bike in yesterday's heat. It was roasting! :eek:

    Thanks. I was out on Sunday too, in Thetford forest. That was a hoot.

    Commute again today!

    Smelly, and well past its best


    And the Titan isn't so good neither.
