1. 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.

    Cheers,

    And for some strange reason, why are drawn implicitly to the $500 and above ones only?

    Damn, almost half way through. Time is flying too fast. No spending over here but I am weakening on several pair of boots....I really don't know how much longer I can hold out.

    Dammit man.. this club is having a reverse effect on me. Instead of bolstering my resolve, I'm starting to reason with myself "Well, all these OTHER guys have faltered..."

    Still in the clear. Getting my clothes fix by shopping for my kids. They are benefiting from this no purchase thing anyway!

    Man these 2 weeks went by really quick.

    managed to clear out some stuff from the closet on ebay, and have some more that haven't been listed. I have a window filled with tabs of stuff to purchase, but I think I can make it another 2 weeks. This is actually helping me from making a lot of mistake inpulse buys including some very questionable armani collezioni jackets from neiman(wtf was I thinking)

    Quoddy finally got back to me on some MTO navy Chromexcel chukkas with a deck sole for when I go visit my retired parents' canal boat in Amsterdam.

    It's possible that I won't order them in the next two weeks... maybe?...

    Yeah, just pulled the trigger. Dropping out of the October edition. I'll try again next month.

    More fail.

    HF suit on sale for: $300
    Tailoring costs for two odd jackets purchased before the 5th (so the jackets themselves shouldn't count against me): $200

    And the HY tie already reported: $80

    I bet I can finish the month without going over $700.

    :embar:
