It's a very good question - I think I saw more of him when he temporarily relocated to America than now where he lives <5 miles away....

Damnit, keep meaning to sort that out. They recently(ish!) changed the api so the links didn't properly work. Hold on ....

EDIT: Testing



Cool so all you go is paste the entire URL and bung it in tags eg.

Code: Select all

https://soundcloud.com/miasmah/kreng-works-for-abattoir-6/
You may have to make sure the '/' at the end of the URL is present. Might take a minute or two from when you post your message to when the player renders.

Gave it a polish (thanks Pande for the new piccy). Couldn't quite get the 'latest unread post' think to work with the topic title, but now there should be a 'latest unread post' link at the top right of the page if you've not read everything. Bizarrely I have managed to get it to work on the very first page, i.e. the one where you choose the subforum. Stoopid php.

Hey Pete - the board does look better,
but the picture needs a different cut.

Before I try something - a question - does it HAVE TO be that format (ultra-mega-wide-screen)
or you can give more vertical pixel space ?

I can, but I don't really want to, kind feel it's wasted space to have it any larger height wise.
Think it looks fine cropped like this.

Yeah, I wouldn't give the image any more "height". Looks cool, although it too me a few seconds to make Brain out :-P

The whole picture looks very cool... but yeah, more height would do more damage than good.
- Maybe merge a few images from the new book / make them sepia or grey / or maybe some Electronic Brain picture would be good for a change. It's up to the admins :)

Apologies for dusting off my wanky design hat - but in a way that kinda works perfectly. You've Gary on the right: Visible, though kinda enigmatic - akin to his front man persona of the band. And Brian on the left: Though some may say actually more influential in the FSOL sound, his visage is far more obscured - more comfortable hiding behind the tech (on in this case, text)

The old design of the site is probably still cached on you browser - Hit CTRL (or Command if on a Mac) and F5 and it should update the site banner and fonts.

Switching off adblock did the trick, before i saw i just needed to refresh. Bizarrely I see Brian's head as if his temple/side of his head is the ridge of his nose. this then makes my brain see the tip of his ear super pointy...aaaand he's a goblin. There. I cannot unsee it now :shock:

control > f5 did it

i'll be the sourpuss who says i liked the old pic better (though that one always gave brian a weird mole on his face when i looked at it lol)

good point about brian properly being "behind the scenes" but i feel like there is a whole bunch of wasted "white" space in this pic
