Very sadly, yes - I just haven't had the headspace to do much else other than work and family stuff. Only recently picked up my sticks for the first time in too many months. I was truly gutted to find out.

Oh man, I've been so busy with "real life" for the last 6 months I've only just found out about Jerry. Love goes out to his family.

Hey folks, me again. Happy New Year to all!

I've had to clear out yet another 200k registrations that were awaiting activation. I have tried to respond to everyone who has emailed to get them activated but I guess I may have deleted some genuine people - really sorry if you are included.

My wallet is a little lighter but hopefully the new anti-spam measures will last for a bit longer this time round. New registrations should work fine, as long as you aren't a bot.

Here's to 2021!

Thanks to over 200,000 recent spam account registrations, I've had to purge all accounts awaiting activation. Sadly, some innnocent people have probably been affected.

If you are one of them, please do have another go, we would love to hear from you.


Sorry folks, but we ain't orange for the time being.

You'll have to put up with boring blue for a bit while I try to find a theme that ain't gonna break the latest version of the forum.

No idea what happened to the avatars either - will try to get them back but it might be a case of finding new ones I'm afraid. I've found a whole bunch of random anime ones so if you edit your profile you should see a new list in the gallery.

Thanks and apologies to JMan for all the emails he got about the site being broke.

Does anyone want to buy an edrumming forum? :D

Welcome back Tim,
I've managed to reattribute your old posts to your new account. I could tell you how but then I'd have to disappear you for another 6 years.
Alas I've been out of the edrum loop too long to know much about the new brain but I bet one of the regulars will be able to help!

Ok, I think I've come up with a solution. If you registered in the last week or two I'm afraid you will probably have to re-register - I've had to delete thousands of fake accounts!

Hey yall, I'm trying to work out how to stem the flow of bot signups as it's actually causing database problems. So for now I'm stopping the registration function - I'm afraid you'll have to lurk for a while and check back to see when it's re-opened. Hopefully won't take too long.

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Bugger - missed our 10-year anniversary!

So yeah, the forum turned 10 years old in July 2019, how nuts is that?

As ever I've been far too busy to be very useful and as a result a lot of automated crap has appeared of late - thanks to JMan for all your hard work, man. This would be a rot-filled wasteland without you!

I've had a good rummage around and set up some new blockades against the spammers which will hopefully hold for a while. I've also deleted several thousand (!) rogue accounts which have been malingering with malodorous intent.

Onwards and upwards, with a little sideways from time to time no doubt  :rock:

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Sorry for the recent hiccups

Hey all, sorry for the recent hiccups - sadly a couple of weeks of server weirdness have zapped some posts and many people would have not been able to even view the forums.

I've done some kicking and punching, and thanks to a new-to-be member pointing out an issue, hopefully this will resolve some problems with logging in and registering.

If you're having trouble logging in, try clearing your browser cache and reloading the site (depending on your machine / browser you can do this while holding one of shift/CTRL/funny mac key and the clicking reload button, or through options or whatnot).

Hey all, really sorry about the down patch broke the forum because other stuff wasn't up to date. The site's been moved to another server so it should be nice and fast and stuff.

Then I had to fix a login issue, and seems we're back :)

I've finally got my 2box set up as well - cos of one thing and another I haven't been able to play it for months.

Rock on!  :rock:

General chit-chat / Re: Problems with my projector

Only thing I can think of is maybe the firestick is trying to output to the projector in 5.1 surround sound? Can you tell it to output in 2.1 / headphone mode maybe?

I think it's a poop-ton in imperial units.

Bloody anti-spam switched itself off when I upgraded the forum.
