    Sounds good. I was just in the middle of composing a message commenting on your proximity - which never got sent because Chris got my message and did his thing with updates at the precise moment I pressed "Submit Reply". I take no credit for the fixes but I have a hunch that ultimately the set of security changes that browsers are going through (and sites like this one) are driving the migration (there have been a lot of update notifications from Invision lately) of sites.

    TBH I'm always a little wary when someone unfamiliar happens along and tells me the world is round (when I know it's flat) - or vice-versa. Thanks for persisting with this, and I look forward to sharing stories.


    PS there is no sign that Eric Woudenberg has "given up" on the minidisc.org site - there just isn't that much more to add these days.


    We all owe Eric more gratitude than I can express here. If he ever wanted anyone to cover his costs for domain and keeping the site up for 20+ years, I'll be the first to volunteer. 

    But sadly a lot of the external links (reviews, 3rd party articles, etc) are dropping off the web, through no fault of Eric's. Things will only get worse as time goes on - not every webmaster is as reliable as Eric is. 

    What does make me want to update the compendium mostly is the new trend of professional releases (in the *wave genres) which are bringing lots of new interest and collectors.

    Sorry about that.

    All good; I'm glad you've got the site back to where it should be.

    Your profile says Vancouver - if that's BC rather than WA, I'm in North Burnaby so if you wanted to grab a beer or a burger on me, feel free to be in touch and we can discuss retro tech or just make sure water is under the bridge.

  3. I made it! There's no salt here, the site is broken when not logged in. Getting an account made required messing with some URLs and following a lot of error'd out links. If you're not already signed in, the site is entirely broken. I would advise that Admins dig in phpMyAdmin before slandering good-natured MiniDisc fans ;)

    It's getting error EX145 (database issue), same as this example: https://lavag.org/topic/19934-error-accessing-site-when-not-logged-in/
