I’m sure many of you have noticed that Fourtheye has been down the last few days, and also down far too often in the last few months. Well, enough was enough, and the decision was made to shift the server to a more reliable location, and here we are! Fingers crossed we won’t see any more downtime in the near future, from either Fourtheye or Tool! While I’m talking about… Read More »Fourtheye server move

Blair has posted the Tool December 2015 Newsletter today, no doubt filling your hearts with much Xmas cheer, or humbugs depending on your life view. It doesn’t appear to contain much Tool news, but I’ll leave this part with you: Oh, I almost forgot the encrypted holiday message: aaAaavvllll(rrrrrgeeeeeeeeeennndddoooocctttwiihhh)uussd.dj5yybmb And don’t think it says: “All evergreen decorations (wreaths included) should be removed by January 5th.” Speaking of Xmas – don’t… Read More »Tool December 2015 Newsletter released

Second prize is a a signed copy… Read More »Fourtheye Xmas Subscriber Giveaway!
Well, that was a rather long outage! An unexpected hardware fault, as well as a few IT related mishaps meant a longer than usual downtime for Fourtheye, but fingers crossed we won’t experience that again any time soon! Thankfully there wasn’t much Tool news (despite the promise of a special announcement), and I will be posting about the VIP session in Phoenix shortly. While I have your attention (as limited… Read More »Fourtheye is back!
As I was poking around Fourtheye today, I noticed that we’ve actually passed the 10th Anniversary of this site, back on June 8th 2005. It’s been a long and fruitful journey, and hopefully one that will continue for some time yet. Over the years I’ve made 2,124 posts (2125 including this one) which have gathered over 31,000 comments. We’ve worn out a couple of forums, and even shifted servers over… Read More »Fourtheye 10th Anniversary Makeover!
It’s taken me a while (mostly since I’ve been away) but after much procrastination I’ve finally come up with my Top 10 Albums for 2014. This year, I found I had trouble making a top 10, not because I hadn’t listened to much, but because I felt while there were many good albums, there weren’t that many that moved into the great “automatic top 10” selection category. Still, in the… Read More »My Top 10 Albums of 2014
