If he's using phpbb2 he might try going to www.phpbb.com and searching the mod database for "security question". I had the problem once upon a time and that solved it.

You could also upgrade to phpbb3 which is supposed to have better spam protection.

I actually think John moved to Sacramento which is NorCal. He's a great musician and we're really lucky to have him. If you get a chance to see him don't pass it up!

Instead of two mixers (1 DJ, 1 band) you might consider going with a Mackie 1402 board. It's light weight, will mix a band just fine, and you can DJ off it. It'll be a lot smaller than having a DJ board and band board.

[Answered] Cole Slaw, Jesse Stone

So I just kind of dig this version of the song linked below for reasons I can't really explain. I'm sure its something that's right under my nose but for the life of me I can't find it.

I have a set of Mackie 450s and their bigger brother the 1521s. The 450s are great. They're easy to carry and mount on tripods with a single person and they provide incredible sound for their size.
