Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

I'm still waiting for the DVD to be available on bol.com. It's strange that it's still not up, it's just the CD release...

Do they offer free shipping or are the price tags a bit salty over there?
I have a pre-order directly at Virgin's artist shop.
I hope the LP + CD/DVD will turn up before mid summer. :pwned:

I just ordered the CD/DVD on platomania.eu, which delivers to my local record store.

I'm listening to Return to Ommadawn right now and: WOW ! Very good stuff!

It's full of references to earlier work. If you like Tubular Bells, Amarok, Ommadawn, Hergest Ridge you won't be disappointed with this one.

Just buy this disc.
:q!

In the waiting for the RTO album to show up at my post office and
through a rather complicated way I found some lossless 24bit/96kHz FLACs of the album made in 2 parts (about 1 GB each).
After just 15 minutes I can tell immediately that this is a fantastic album which I'll love for a very long time. It has got that classic haunting Oldfield electro-acoustic sound that I've missed for so many years.
Listening through my new headphones I do hear some white noise popping in here and there. But overall I can enjoy a very neat sound quality in this. Thank you Mike for not quitting just yet.

So I haven't had the chance to order the DVD yet and looking into buying it right now and... I can't get it anywhere seemingly for a decent price. The official website had it for only €16 but sold out (why the hell is the 5.1 mix only available in the Limited Edition anyway!?) for the CD + DVD combo, but the DVD release pretty much everywhere else is at least €25 and not available anymore. What is this all about!? :|
