Re: Mark, where are you???

Yes, all the spam that was posted on this board (and other phpBB3 boards) was generated by computer programs, most of which originate in Russia. They work kind of like the spiders that Google and Yahoo use to crawl around the net and index content. In this case, the programs search out phpBB3 boards...

Re: Mark, where are you???

Thanks, Steveo. I need to install a spam prevention modification on the board, but I just haven't had the time to sit down and figure it out. It hasn't been a problem up until the last month or so, when somebody obviously designed a new spambot able to bypass the registration captcha. Since then I'v...

Burt on NPR's "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me"

Burt was the celebrity guest on Saturday's edition of "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me," the NPR news quiz. If you missed it, you can hear Burt's interview segment by clicking the link on this page: http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=35 It's a surprisingly good interview, with a few nug...

Re: Downloading Bacharach on mp3

Apple's iTunes Music Store remains the most comprehensive source for digital music. I'm regularly amazed at how much old, obscure music I'm able to find that I never would have been able to find at any one CD store. You do however have to download Apple's iTunes application for Mac or Windows to acc...

Re: Burt to perform, debut new CD on QVC tonight

It's not sold out! I'm not quite sure what the problem with, but I think some of the links were wrong. Either that or QVC had a database problem on its end. In any event, if you click on the links in this thread or on the main page, you should be taken to QVC where you should still be able to purcha...

Re: Burt to perform, debut new CD on QVC tonight

Thanks, Roberto. I just noticed that and put a mention of it on the main page. The QVC Bonus disc, which I'm assuming is available only through QVC, includes "For The Children," "Fallin' Out Of Love" and "Who'll Speak For Love." Those songs probably won't mean much to most QVC watchers, but I'm sure...

Burt to perform, debut new CD on QVC tonight

Burt's publicist asked me to pass this along... Burt Bacharach will debut his new CD—his first live CD in 30 years—on QVC tonight, Tuesday, Oct. 7, at 10 p.m. (ET). Burt Bacharach Live at the Sydney Opera House features 32 songs spanning Bacharach’s career and recorded at the world-famous venue with...

Re: Burt in London

It's almost certainly going to happen, Barry. I'm waiting on confirmation of those dates from Burt's publicist before I post the details. Hopefully, that confirmation will arrive shortly.

Re: Burt with Noel Gallagher of Oasis

I think I've got a tape of that concert somewhere. If my memory serves me right, it was broadcast by the BBC and includes a BBC announcer introducing the presentation. The quality of the recording is just so so as it was recorded off the radio and it's a cassette. I don't recall hearing anything abo...

Re: Always Something There - Ace compilation

That's just what I was thinking re "Move It On the Backbeat." It seems strange to me that a UK label could successfully license that track while Hip-O Select, which I believe is owned by Universal, couldn't. Something about those U.K. labels. There was (and maybe still is) a label called Charly that...

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by your question, Steve, but the change to WordPress isn't going to affect this board at all.
