  1. I forget where I saw a chalkboard sign outside a restaurant which said " take a picture of your food for instagram and receive a free concussion". I observed a table of six at the local pub; all with their eyes on their phones and absolutely no discussion for the duration of their meal. Sad.
  2. "Someone on melodeon.net has pointed out that the same concertina is apparently being offered on Gumtree by "Gillian". The seller's name on Gumtree comes up as "Henrietta" when I click on the link above. Very strange.
  3. I wouldn't exactly call it weird. I use status updates on my profile to inform those interested about new Soundcloud publications with occasional micro discussions arising. To me that's exactly the right blend between public and private.


    The only thing is that this is not so well documented; frequently people (like you) confuse the public feed and private messages and end up posting private matters on the public feed. It would help if there was a message box reminding one about the semi public nature before posting.


    To stay really private, use the "message" button on another person's profile.


    BTW, this geature's been around forever, eben before the forum overhaul.

      Thanks RAc. I rarely use the message service and didn't realise there were public as well as private messages. Thanks for clearing this up for me. Cheers.

  4. Like this?


    This is a public message posted to your feed and I think it appears as a status update.  Which is weird.


    Private messages are still private, just be careful not to post a public message by mistake.

      Thanks Don. I rarely use the message service and didn't realise there is public as well as private. My mistake. Thanks for clearing this up for me. Cheers.

  5. I have noticed on a few occasions that private messages appear under the 'Activity' tab. I find this strange as I presumed private messages were exactly that; private - and used where members didn't want the information shared. I wonder if other members have any thoughts on this? UPDATE: I have been enlightened by some members that there are public and private messages. My mistake.
  6. Thanks Dave. I'll keep my eye out. Cheers, Dave
  7. Thanks Stephen, most of the parts I need are pads, valves and mainly bellows. Cheers.
  8. I came across this Rock Chidley EC for sale several months ago. http://www.musicswopshop.com.au/stock?cat=Violins%2c+Cellos%2c+Mandolins%2c+Banjos+%26+Accordions&sub=Accordions&displayItemCount=20&moreItems=20&sort=SORTLATEST The price has been lowered quite a bit since I first saw it. Conversion rate: AUD$750 = US$527, GBP£419,Euro€467. I have no financial interest in this at all. Cheers, Dave
  9. Does anyone know when Concertina Spares will be operating again or, if indeed, they will ever be operating again? I am keen to buy some spares for a Maccann restoration but may have to buy spares elsewhere. Cheers
  10. Stephen, I have a copy of this book in unmarked, good condition which I no longer need. You can have the book for the cost of postage; which would be around AUD $22, HKD $120 or US $15.30, from Australia to Hong Kong. Send me a PM if you are interested. Cheers, Dave
  11. Unfortunately for me, this is not available in Australia.
  12. Hi Stephen. Something to consider would be Engravers Wax. Engravers use it to infill lines engraved on metal, mother of pearl, abalone and wood. You can buy it here: https://www.stewmac.com/Luthier_Tools/Tools_by_Job/Tools_for_Inlay_and_Pearl_Cutting/Laskins_Engraving_Filler.html or just google it. Cheers
  13. Oops! I stand corrected on the pronunciation of Aiobheann.
  14. I don't know where you are in Melbourne but there is a great accordion repairer in West Heidelberg. He goes under the name "Captain Accordion" http://members.optusnet.com.au/~capt.accordion/ He is a really easy bloke to deal with and very helpful. Cheers, David
