    Hi - new Logic Pro user and new LUG forum member :) here.

    (Keen as mustard. Maybe a little impatient.)

    Is this group still active: I've tried to contact the admins a couple of times - about the books page (offered to update) and whether/how subscriptions work.

    No reply :(.

    Is anybody there?

    Things seem to have gone off the rails for this group. There are others and quick google may help you there.

    Hi there, welcome to the LUG

    Most certainly yes, we are as active and enthusiastic as ever!

    Please contact me using the groups private mail function. Let's take it from there.

    kind regards

    HI Matt

    If you feel there is anything we need to look at or improve, please let us know, or start a thread in the Discuss The LUG Site section.

    thanks and kind regards

    BTW, as this is not directly related to Logic 9, I have moved this thread, with a link that will expire in 7 days, to the Discuss The LUG Site section of the forum.

    kind regards

    Hi Mark,

    I'm not sure what "keen as mustard" means, since I don't eat mustard, grow mustard, or have any experience with either keen or dull mustard. Is that an Australian saying? The wifey and I are really enjoying an Austrialian-American science fiction show called Farscape, however, so that has to count for something. :)

    You know how it is—if one person witnesses a crime, that person feels responsible and reports it. However, if a group of people witnesses a crime, everyone thinks the other guy will. :D

    I did get your emails, but you sent them not just to me, but to every admin, so I apologize for not answering, but I figured since it went out to everyone, someone else would get to it (and have better answers).

    And my answers that if you read my Sticky in this forum about new plans here: we're in the process of moving to vBulletin 4. And we're thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close. In fact, to be completely honest, I wasn't sure if it would have switched over before you got your reply! This is relevant because on the vBulletin 4 site we do have a books page, and you're perfectly welcome to add to it when it's up. I encourage you to! But for now, we're just waiting. Same with membership—it never got started on vBulletin 3, but now that the changeover is imminent, that also might be activated in the near term (although not at once; we don't want to bite off more than we can chew, better a tiered rollout).

    So I hate to apologize and then give you unsatisfying answers, but please accept my apology, enjoy the LUG, and for the questions you have the answer is basically RSN (Real Soon Now). I hate giving that answer, because it can mean so little and be dragged on forever, but it is pretty accurate here.

    Where? There? I'm here...are you there? ;)

    With nothing but respect for your art and your participation, I have no idea what you are talking about. This group has never been more active, we're getting hundreds and hundreds of new members, threads, conversations, and so on, every week. So I'm not sure what rail you're referring to. And if you posted something that wasn't answered, that sucks, and you have my sympathy—trust me, even as an admin I've posted things that go unanswered. Sometimes nobody has anything to say; it happens.

    I probably sound a bit snarky, please don't take offense. If that sounds a bit defensive, as I say above, we've put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into this (and time...we've told you repeatedly this is a labour of love, we don't see a single penny for all we do to maintain, build, and improve this community). We're so close to improving this forum technically, which will make it easier for members to participate with articles, to find what they're looking for, to communicate with each other, and so on, that to hear someone write something so flippantly dismissive as you did chaffs a bit. But anyway, keep on enjoying the site and you'll see what we've been up to, and hopefully we'll be back on whatever rail you feel we're skirting now. :hippy:

    Peace, love, and Logic Pro,

    Quite the opposite! Thanks. Great to have all that info.

    Shall wait and watch for the new developments, with which - the very best of luck!
    'Keen as mustard' must be a British-only expression: very keen, hopping hot, sting in the nose anticipation.

    Thanks again!

    It's origin, I believe, is that the major manufacturer of mustard in Britain was (still is?) Keen's.

    Coleman's is the brand I know.

    But who likes mustard?

    A good steak is only half complete without a smothering of really hot English mustard. :)

    I can't say I've ever had English mustard on a steak, although I've had some good steaks. :) However, I do love English chocolate (Cadbury) and shortbread!

    I've also watched a lot of English TV, and I've always been interested in trying a custard tart, which Lionel on As Time Goes By always fussed over. Although since I'm not the biggest custard fan, I might not like it much.

    Speaking of English sayings and English TV, here's one that I thought was pretty funny: on the recent season of Doctor Who (yup, the wifey and I are Whoveans, we watched the season before it hit the USA via internet versions from BBC One) Matt Smith held off the Daleks with what he claimed was a bomb, but was actually a "jammie dodger." However, months later when BBC America showed them, the line was dubbed so that The Doctor said "jammie cookie." Go figure.

    Take care,
