  1. Bernie was also a 'star attraction' at the 2010 London Bass Bash. Would be great to see him again.
  2. Gig Gear bag = what do you use

    What he said!
  3. Gig Gear bag = what do you use

    I use one of these. It's on wheels and has a pull-up grab-handle so easy enough to move around. If necessary, I can just take out the top half only which, to be fair, with a bit of re-organizing, I can get by with well enough. But I've rarely been at a gig and thought, rats - I shoulda brought such 'n' such....!
  4. Dates / Time

    Just letting you know this does work ok for me. I'm taken to the first unread post since my last visit which also has a red separator line above it. Maybe something in your account settings?
  5. Excellent! See you there.
  6. Cassette to digital - best method?

    My son bought me one of these: honestech Audio Recorder™ 3.0 Plus with USB Cassette Player I've not had a chance to really put it through it's paces as yet, but I've tried converting a couple of old demo cassette tapes to mp3's and it seems to do the job. One of my tapes was a tad 'wobbly' (recorded c.1982) so that's how the audio was captured. I gave it a second try and it did a slightly better job. Details here: http://www.honestech.com/main/audioRecorder30plus.asp
  7. Site Bugs - List them here

    Cool! Just seen that 'Recently Browsing' is back.
  8. Site Bugs - List them here

    Fair enough. It was simply that I'm constantly on email and I could see topic replies and decide whether I needed to go to Basschat right away or not. (If that makes sense?!). PM's - the only PM's I found in my email were from a fair few years ago. There was only the link back to BC, not the message itself. Maybe an earlier configuration? No matter - it was so long ago, I can't remember what they were about anyway.
  9. Site Bugs - List them here

    Previously, I received email notifications when replies were posted to topics I follow. These emails would show the post text along with a link back to the topic on Basschat. I now see that these email notifications only include the link back to the topic but not the text from the post itself. Is this the only option with the new system or could the text from posts still be included in the notification emails?
  10. First topic on the new site!

    Phew! I'd hate to think I broke the new website with my very first post...!!!
  11. First topic on the new site!

    @charic Yes, I did wonder the same. The names list didn't actually pop up at all when I wrote the tags in my comment. Ah, just a thought - could it be because I wrote your name but forgot to include the @ symbol before it, so added it in afterwards...? That said, it's certainly working now.
  12. First topic on the new site!

    Much congrats and well done to @charic, @ped and all those involved in getting the new Basschat up 'n' running. Ok... time to play around!
