Yes. A year later. The triple single lps were mail order only.


Started offering the three single LPs on the sleeve of Tinseltown Rebellion.

On an iPhone 5 in landscape, the banner gets cut in half. In profile, what I've seen so far seems to work really well.

In case it escaped your notice, the favicon appears to be MIA. Sorry if this was some obvious thing that I stupidly pointed out like an idiot.

It may be on zappa.com, but they've forgotten to put one under forum.zappa.com.

Your browser is doing something suss. The favicon is present for zappa.com but it's not present for the subdomain forum.zappa.com.

Safari Version 9.1.2 (11601.7.7)

Safari only shows the favicon when you click on the url, which pisses me off

zappa.com with favicon

Image

forum.zappa.com without favicon

Image

Firefox Version 48.0.2

Firefox shows the favicon in the tab, but doesn't show the subdomain correctly.

The first tab is zappa.com with the favicon, the second tab is forum.zappa.com without a favicon

I don't know, there's something suggestive going on with that hair style.

In my opinion, "not that it makes a heck of a lot of difference" to anyone...

...the front page of the new zappa.com is pretty rough, it's initial impact is that of a 2 x 4 of advertising in the face...it hurts.

If that's the impression the family trust is going for, then it's perfect, read no more...if not, then the current front page of the web site, could instead be the front page of the store.

Loving fans typed in "http://zappa.com" usually because they love Frank's music, they want a nice warm fuzzy on a site dedicated to Frank and his family, and that's what should be on the front page.

Yes, we are the folks who'll buy stuff, we sure are hungry for more, the family can count on us for buying everything, and that's what the store link is for.

I doubt anyone will come (who's of course hungry for more), will neglect to click on the store link, so no-one needs to worry that we won't see what's for sale.

So the front page should be about Frank and his family...who he was, what were his works...as well as who his family is now and what are they doing...wouldn't that be a far better front page?

Its become converted to a slap in the face of advertising, "Buy This Right Now," the only hard core thing about it now is it's just hard core advertising.

Minor advertising would be cool if it didn't overwhelm,...like an alluring element link to the store... The store link will be found at any rate, but if someone's upset about not enough advertizing, then give them a 10% eye-catching element on the front page.

Make the front page about Frank and his music and his family.

IMO

How would I go about archiving my messages, as suggested? I can't see any instructions anywhere.

In the inferior-left corner of your private messages panel you can choose out of a menu, "export as cvs" or txt and click "export this view"...
