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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Wait, so the "mouse-based" vs. "keyboard-based" argument was for real? Or am I just the only one not getting this elaborate trolling scheme?

    It was a nice way of me saying that if you are prefer to use a keyboard, Macs are inferior. If you are a point-and-click person, they are better. They also crash less. The end.

    Oh there is certainly demand. It is a retarded product. Kind of how Hanson was retarded as a musical artist, and the snuggie is retarded as a warming mechanism.

    Retarded and popular are not correlated.

    Want a large screen to work with video and multiple documents. As you can see I also have a laptop (Macbook pro) coming in two days.

    Since I do a lot of work at home, why would I want to be working on some tiny little laptop when I can work on a huge screen with very little clutter? I don't enjoy working on Laptops at all. I'm only buying another one so that I have something for when I travel. But I think that if you tend to use the computer in the same location most of the time, you get a better deal going with a good desktop.


    I quite agree. I am a developer and work on multiple applications at the same time, have a beast desktop with a monitors wall (3 x 21" lcd monitors).

    It's impossible to work as developer or graphic developer with a only a laptop.
    I use laptop for travels or when working on simple tasks.

    For us geeks power desktops ruled, rule and will ever rule.
