Quote from: MAtT on July 17, 2020, 06:34:31The reason this altered version ended up being called Forever is that in January 1981 they recorded a John Peel studio session on Radio One, and along with early versions of Faith tracks included a version to which they gave that name. Throughout the 1981 tours they played Forever, usually as the final song, again with improvised lyrics. As the tour went on the sound and effects on the song got darker But in 1982, after a few shows where they did the same, they changed the song quite a bit - the chord sequences are different - even darker than before. On many bootlegs from the time the song is either still referred to as Forever, or given a name made-up from some of the decipherable lyrics (e.g. "Face", "All I have to do is kill her"). But after the release of the Curiosity compilation on the cassette B-side of the Concert LP in 1984, the song was referred to as "All Mine"

Quote from: MAtT on August 08, 2020, 20:12:40I don't see those symbols but surmised from what you said that the tag is "[youtube]" which worked.
Quote from: MAtT on August 10, 2020, 13:07:34I'm an old skool IT geek with a tinfoil hat, who uses very tight browser security by default (in technical terms I filter page elements like CSS, scripts, media, XHR & frames). So sometimes web pages don't work in the usual way for me until I get around to tweaking the settings. Everything works here on my other PC so I just have to copy the settings really... it's pure laziness on my part. Like everything I'll get around to it at some point....
Quote from: SueC on August 11, 2020, 00:08:59I never have to see any sort of advertising on the Internet because it's all filtered - indeed, all scripts need permission when a page loads, and we can permit any necessary stuff item by item from the list of denied scripts that comes up. I get quite a shock when I use the Internet on other people's computers - it's so commercialised, a totally different experience to this tinfoil hat version.
