Rob W- it would be an honour finally to meet you. And
Mr. St. Hibbins usually manages to struggle up from the wilds of Borneo, sorry, Bournemouth for a Malcolm gig - c'mon!

Olly, we so nearly met. You introduced yourself to Sir Allan of Heron. Well I was sat behind him. I didn't want to butt in.

incidentally, fabulous gig. Fabulous evening.

Is this DVD still available anywhere?

I tried ordering from Amazon Marketplace seller a month ago but it never arrived & Amazon tell me if it's not marked as 'Despatched' in the next couple of days the order will be cancelled
Manband Archive Central / Re: PHP upgrade - Late January 2020

Ok. Looks like we came out the other side cleanly enough.

I did find a couple of issues after the upgrade but, but on reflection, I suspect that they weren't related. In the Family and Friends section of the Evolution department, an error in my config table was preventing the discography tables loading at the bottom of each article. Sorted that.

Additional security has been placed on the file upload processes too, offering just a little more protection. This was pre-emptive rather than reactive.

I'm aware of a glitch in the scrolling gig-list, as it's presented in the Forum, which is causing certain accented characters to display incorrectly. This is a little weird, as the same code runs perfectly fine on the Archive homepage. I shall go away and scratch my head until a solution falls out.

If anyone spots any other 'anomalous behaviour' please do let me know.

Something very unexpected if not completely different, not just that MM is playing with a band but that the new material is very different from what he has done in the past. Looking forward to it; first gig of the year.

Jon, I usually purchase one cd a year! Well, slight exaggeration, but very slight.

This year, just 21 days in, I've already purchased this SoM cd, Malcolm's cd, and James Oliver's cd. That's nose bleed territory for me  :D

Excellent news, my first cd of the year.
No need for crowd funding?

Manband Archive Central / PHP upgrade - Late January 2020
« Last post by Jules on January 18, 2020, 03:00:40 AM »
A heads up that the hosting service supporting the Manband Archive (and the Forum of course) will be upgrading PHP to a more current version at the end of January.

As all the Archive code is developed on an even more current version of PHP, I'm optimistic that we won't see much disruption during the upgrade. That said, there's always a chance that something may slip through the cracks.

If you visit the site early in February and spot any unusual behaviour - from the site rather than the people who visit it - please do let me know, either here, or by email, or on one of the Man Facebook pages.

Yes, ascertained it wasn't the Effigy crew who filmed this. Though by the proverbial hook or crook, I'll unravel my personal mystery as it's bugging me no end. Favourite though is I'm confusing a Stevey rant for Gavin, but then again...

Agree with Allan about the separation of the songs. I dug out my DVD of the gig. I see I also have a sampler DVD of the gig, so when possible, I'm going to watch that, maybe it's in normal order, though not all the performance will be on I presume.

Cannot recall at all the walk back. Probably as well because I can't recall Tel calling me a b*st*rd. Tel, you won't have been the first...or the last  ;D
