For a hard-working guy like yourself, this Blue work boot from Kodiak fits the bill. The smooth nubuck upper is waterproof, and the leather padded collar, abrasion-resistant lining and an anatomical tongue provide first-class comfort. The rubber outsole is thickly treaded, while the full lace-up closure ensures a snug fit.
And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.
There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.
