Started reply, made a cup of tea, finished reply, and everyone is talking about accents...spooky!
No time for cups of tea with the Accent Police around! Lucky for you your homme wasn't armed. I will be (re)posting my Hyperion experience shortly.
It's happened again! This time at a full stop. Luckily, I've kept my text this time so I'll change that character and try once more.
(We are most grateful, ff, but the posting software does seem pretty flaky at present!)
As I was saying-
My most recent CD is Hyperion
And again. It was a single apostrophe that time. Perhaps we must post in capitals with no punctuation, like talking to a three year-old?
Here is another attempt:
As I was saying-
My most recent CD is (Hyperion)
I think I'll give up for tonight. It will all seem better in the morning, won't it?

Delighted to find I still had my old registration details from a few years ago for the FoR3 forum. Good to have it back in operation, ff.
After yesterday's WNO performance of Ariadne auf Naxos, I bought the new Chandos recording in English - Christine Brewer as Ariadne, Gillian Keith as Zerbinetta and... Stephen Fry as the Major-Domo!
Well, it's a bright, frosty morning and I'm relatively bushy tailed, so let's have another go at posting my offering to this thread (perhaps the software gremlins are still asleep):
My most recent CD is (Hyperion) [I]The Romantic Piano Concerto
Well - that was too much to hope, wasn't it? Everythings looks fine in preview, as ever, but the text balked at a hyphen that time.
So, I have now been blocked by an acute accented E, a single quotation character, a full stop (!), and a hyphen. Yet sometimes these characters give no trouble (assuming you can read this). And when I try italics for the first time, that doesn't work (see The Romantic ... above).
All very strange. I've never had anything like this before , as they always say. (Mumbles " The BBC boards were never like this").
I hate threads that start off "Does no-one else ..." but in this case I feel I mst do so. Teething troubles, I am sure. I'll sit back and wait for developments.
