There's a very interesting and rare item on Ebay at present, an almost complete back file of the periodical Vole which regularly featured articles on Do-it-yourself by one Pete Atkin. All most entertaining and informative!
Last time a file appeared on the market it was priced at around £300, whether this is the same set I don't know. (The ad says that the numbering format is unconventional but it seems depressingly familiar to me.)

I note that Jan's post re Vole (supra), has been read over 1,500 times in a little over 12 hours.  This is astonishing!!

Aah, no, sorry, it doesn't work like that. The forum doesn't store a value for the number of hits to Jan's message itself, only to its thread as a whole. Jan posted to an (this) old thread, begun by Pete in 2005 -- the 'views' total refers to the entire thread since that time.
 
To count the number of thread views triggered by Jan's post you'd need to note the 'views' total at posting time and watch it increase.
 
This reply of mine will now, until someone else replies, show the thread's 'views' total. Yours will have changed to show its number in the sequence of replies.
 
But you spotted my modification! -- you'll find another small change (on the same theme of providing more access information) it you go to the Members page.

[PS -- of course, if you begin a new thread your message will start with a 'views' total of 1 (because you'll have viewed it) so until there's a reply it'll tell true.]

All becomes clear.  Thank you, Mr Ubermoderator!
 
Edit subequent to original posting I see that my total number of posts, displayed on the last message I posted above is 67 and that the total number of posts displayed with this message is also 67.  And I see that my post of 26th Jan was also post number 67!  Shome mishtake shurely?

Gerry: Another manifestation of the same principle of economy -- the forum doesn't store your score per message as an ordinal, so the 'Posts:' total, wherever and whenever displayed, is always your total at the moment it's assembled for viewing. Equally there's no history of stars count, display name change, photo or avatar change etc. -- looking back at old messages you'll only ever see the current situation.

I see that there's a copy of the relatively hard to get hold of Touch Has A Memory CD for sale on ebay, and I thought some of you might be interested. See here.
 
Hope this is of interest to someone here. It has a different version of the title track from the one on the BOTBS album (details in Steve's discography).
 
Cheers
