I'll have a look today for you & Crash. Can't promise to recover those messages, but I'll try [Smile]

Update: In the words of Scotty from Star Trek.. "I done what ah could Cap'n"... That file was corrupted and the advice from the makers of the board software was to delete it. There was no recovery option that was possible, according to them.. Sorry. [Frown]

Anyone else whose having problems, let us know [Smile]

Wicked.. Youre welcome [Smile]

Okay, so deleting the file doesn't delete the PMs (the software ppl were not clear on this, so I had naturally assumed it did) ... It just fixes the prob [Smile]

Anyone else whose having the same prob, just let me know the exact error MSG and I'll do the same [Smile]

I need their error message which contains the affected corrupted file I think, although I know what to look for in the directory listing - a zero length file.

Crash, just let me know if you're still having problems. Same for anyone else [Smile]

Thank you Kevin, I appreciate it. [Smile] Of course I ultimately decide, but I genuinely do want everyone (if poss) to be happy.

I don't spend enough time on the boards, and I'm sure it looks to all the world like nothing is happening behind the scenes but nothing could be further from the truth and this was a relatively easy way to "refresh" things and show ppl that things are indeed happening behind the scenes.

The whole Rewind will be getting an entirely new look and feel that works much better on mobile devices, but before that can happen, all the peripheral stuff must change first and that involves major rewrites of thousands of lines of code.

For those who are interested, here's where we are:

* iRewind (contact/site update agent) is ported and live. Only a bit more tidying/beautifying and that can wait. People can try it out by submitting site updates and see what they think...

* PFR (my weird retro buying guide! [Wink] ) is in progress but I know where I'm going.

* Site Title Browser is nearly done

* Site People Profiler (actor/director/composer etc) is pretty much done in a quick n dirty kinda way.

* These boards have been refreshed. I drew all the icons myself. They're not from some "forum icons" download site [Wink] If anyone else wants to have a bash at suggesting new/improved 80s board icons or colours then I'm all ears... [Smile]

* New site design is not even started. This is the one that I always run away from. I hate the graphic design jobs as its soo hard to get things "just right". You'd imagine that designing things that look 80s is just about splashing around bright colours & neon accents.. I wish it was that easy.. If you do that, you just seem to end up with something that looks like "my first website" [Wink] As above, if anyone is a great graphic designer or web designer and would like to help, you'd be very welcome and I'd be very grateful [Smile]

Anyways, I will keep you all informed and give you sneak peeks from time to time if you'd like [Smile]

I like the new look. The first time I logged in, a few days a go, with the new look, the colored tabs didn't show up for me. This time they popped up. I like the pink and green/teal- very 80's! Thanks for the hard work, and very nice job Nick!

I did wonder about the Graemlins... Should we hold a competition to design proper 80s ones? [Wink]
