• Welcome back to the re-opened tMP

    Welcome back!

    Well... after much trouble and strife, and what seems an age - at long last we're back.

    Sincere apologies to you all for the major outage, but you'll be pleased to know we are running on a new server, with new software and there will be no more security issues, or virus's for anyone - we're back, and we're clean.

    You will most likely notice that we are on a new version of the software that powers tMP, which is the very latest incarnation of vBulletin vB 4.1.5 - so you might have to take some time to familiarise yourselves with the controls and settings are etc... I am still working my way through it all and finding this out by the way!

    If you have any issues, or if you you spot something that is missing from before or is currently not working well, please post this in the How-to forum, and we will do our best to fix it - though given the items we already have listed to fix, this might take a little time.

    So, many thanks to you all for hanging in there, and my sincere apologies for the outage.

    Yamaha Xeno Soprano Cornet for Sale

    Noticed your Xeno sold. Not a bad price. I know you said it had hardly been used, but the depreciation is savage as soon as you walk out of the shop.
