I performed a rebuild of the images in the Gallery yesterday. So hopefully the thumbs are better now. Still looking into the sorting order. The setting in the AdminCP is set to "Most Recent" but it still shows as "By Album Title" and in reverse order (Z->A).
Maybe these help: http://www.colorado.edu/physics/phys3330/phys3330_fa09/pdfdocs/Diodes_3.pdf http://www.colorado.edu/physics/phys1020/phys1020_sp12/NagleLectures/nagle_phys1020_sp12_lectures12_given.pdf
To respond: The encoding problem is a conversion problem. As Thorsten said probably not fixable.I am afraid it's also a conversion e.g. timezone problem.Might be just the active old ones, hence new ones are correctly displayed. I checked my album from 2009 and it looks ok.Not sure, might be a conversion problem as well.I cant find any settings on this. Might be just a new feature of the new version of the board software.The emoticon problem was fixed. I added the old ones. But it looks like in old post its still not parsed.Not sure.This should be fixed.I can't find anything setting on this. Maybe this setting was removed in the new version of the board software..Oh come on there is only 9 challenges
I have no experience with either the Tempest nor MPC5000. But a quick google gave me this:https://www.gearslutz.com/board/electronic-music-instruments-electronic-music-production/570431-dave-smith-instruments-tempest-73.html Maybe its helpfull? esp. the last post on that page.
I am very sorry for the people who have lost their money. And if the sad stories from Doug are true, i feel sorry for him. But that does not make it in anyway OK. The money is not his to take and he should have either not accept it or immediately return it when he realized he could not keep his end of the bargain. However after all these years i do not think it's very realistic to think that the he will ever refund any money. The money is probably long gone for what ever reason. It's hard pill to swallow but this is the harsh reality.
