  1. All passwords should be the same as you had them. If you can't remember it, you can reset it by using the email that is tied to your account. If for some reason you do not have access to that email (or can't remember it), please feel free to PM me or email (jonathan@greenplastic.com) and I can help. There is an issue with Yahoo email addresses at the moment in that they are not receiving emails from MT. Hopefully that will be resolved soon. I am entertaining selling the greenplastic.com domain but not the site or content (including MT). MT will for now on be at this URL (mortigitempo.com).
  2. Totally fair to ask these questions. There's no real reason as to why I brought MT back. I guess it's because it's been a part of my life for the past 20 years. It felt weird not having it around. I have no expectation that people will visit or stick around. I realize there's plenty of other places you can spend your time (reddit, discord, slack groups, etc...). There's a lot of history within the topics here and for some reason, I didn't like that I just erased it. So, at the very least, I wanted to bring MT back purely for the historical snapshot of what useless things people were talking about from 2004 on. The only things that have changed are the server and software. Both were ancient and prone to spamming and attacks. The whole server was taken over by hackers in January which is why I shut it down. After moving to a new server and updating the forum software to be from this decade, I'm optimistic that the spam problems won't be as bad. I'm "present" in the sense that i check the site daily. I don't post much, never have. And I realize that things got really bad here the last few years. Life is crazy with 2 children under 4 years old so I do have bigger priorities. Hope this makes sense...

  13. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? After “deleting their entire presence” off of the internet yesterday, Radiohead released two teaser video on their Instagram earlier today.

Without further delay, here is the video for “Burn the Witch”: Stanley Donwood posted some behind-the-scenes photos as well: View the full article
  14. Screen capture of Green Plastic from August, 2000. This is the actual size, designed for 640×480 screen resolutions. Crazy. Hi everyone. As you can see, this site has not been updated since July of 2012 and you may have been wondering if it was ever going to be updated again. At this point in time, after 16 years (!) of running this site, I haven’t had the time or resources to give it the love it deserves. The world has changed a lot since I first started this site. Back in 1997, there was no social networking, no Twitter or Facebook. The “fansite” was really the only way for fans to get the information they wanted about their favorite bands. Today, people can get push notifications and immediate aggregated updates on anything they want from all sorts of sources. This leaves a site like greenplastic.com a little less useful, especially when it’s not updated as frequently. Green Plastic is not going anywhere and the site will remain online for a long time to come and I do hope to be able to return to posting regularly. In the meantime, you can visit our still active message board to interact with other fans. I appreciate all the love and support over the years. We’ll talk soon, Jonathan PS. Check out Thom’s Dazed and Confused mix! View the full article
  15. Holy Shit. Took me forever to figure this out. I updated the forum software yesterday and the quote CSS stuff got all messed up. Looks like it's fixed but I'll want to pretty it up a bit. At least now you can tell what is a quote and what isn't. phew.
  16. hey all. there have been some crazy server issues the past few weeks. It all started with a hack from some turkish kid that defaced the entire server. Once that was resolved, there were lingering issues. Some of you (especially the mods) where getting "driver error" messages which prevented you to login in. I've implemented some fixes and continue to monitor. yesterday we had another hack which used the server to send out thousands of spam emails. that's just now been resolved (i think) and this is what caused the server slowness today and yesterday. good times! I'll continue to monitor everything and fingers crossed everything is all sorted out.
