I kinda forgot the password, and I've changed Email addresses and forgot to update the site, so I can't reset it :razz:

Congrats :) What made you think of this place? ;)

It's kind of complicated really, and mostly to do with things that I really don't want to drag from one place to another :)

I've popped by from time to time and seen how things are going before now, but since I'm trying to drag myself out of a pretty dark place I got myself into when my Dad died, I thought maybe trying to get back into music might help that. This was always a nice site for showcasing my art stuff, so it was kind of the first place I thought of when I started going through my old music database.

I see :) Well welcome back anyhow. I'm not sure if anyone else is here, though. This forum has been inactive for a long time. :(

Thanks, apologies for being gone so long...

I'll be working on promoting my work on other sites as well, so I will point people in this direction whilst I'm at it, it might help in that respect.

I guess I'll need to get back to work on this forum then... I haven't been attending to it lately.

I also can't decide if to keep pressing buttons until I get the right 'feel' for this theme, or if to just bin it and start again on something else.
Originally I was going to go for a completely different look, but then imagined people complaining about it not looking Sectorgamey. :P

Hehe, just like me to make work for you :P

Seriously though, the Forum is what you want it to be, since there's no-one here at the moment, you could easily change it to what you want, and then that would be Sectorgame-y.

I'm a big fan of clean slates at the moment, so my opinion would be, if you feel you have a better look for it, do it :)

Well I'm quite content with this theme, but it's still in BETA and needs a lot of work :)

I'm glad you came back when you did, I was just about ready to give up on this place.

So did you get your account working? I noticed you posted once then went back to MrFlipside..

Edit: Just saw your PM. I've set your e-mail to the new one.

That seems to fix it. Thanks :)

I find now I've hit my 40's I need to get Firefox to remember a lot more of my passwords :(

What I'm planning to do is post my WIP stuff here to get opinions, so I might be able to get visitors that way, but obviously, it's not going to have a vast impact. I've noticed most music sites with threads like 'What do you think of this music I wrote?' are zero reply ones, but I'll do what I can to raise awareness.

Do you still do music at all?

Youtube and Soundcloud are great ways to raise awareness these days.
I used to use 'Acidplanet' back in the day, don't know if they are still around?

I stopped doing music before I moved to Korea (2007); Haven't really touched anything since then.
So much has changed though, you can do so much more with just a piece of software and a few plugins.

I keep telling myself I want to create an album one of these days. I keep thinking about it.
But then, I keep thinking about money problems and the idea of making music just goes out the window.

Yup, the initial outlay can be quite high. My copy of Sonar and my Midi Keyboard came to about £350. At least there are plenty of free VST's once the initial payment is done, which saves quite a bit, but since I'm into Orchestral and Choral stuff, it required buying some East-West plugins, which aren't cheap either :(

For a while, I used some plugins that weren't exactly.... as pure as the driven snow, but since they came with all the risks and problems inherent with that, I tend to stay away from those sort of things now.

I don't have that kind of money at the moment; I'd have to pirate it. :(
