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 then maybe lcd panel manufacturers will go back to making various shapes/sizes/resolutions to optimally fit specific applications rather than trying to force a 1080p 16:9 display into every damn display

    Stop eating a copious amount of junk food if I get drunk. I am all about the gluttony if I get sauced then the next week I am regretting it.

    looks like we all have similar resolutions. i'm not big on new year's resolutions, but there are some reasons why i really need to set goals and a timeline for achieving them.

    had my physical late last year and did not like what i heard AT ALL. in 2011, for the first time in my life, i did not exercise at all and my eating habits deteriorated. therefore:

    • lose 20 lbs (already lost 8 since Jan 1)
    • work out at least 3-4 times a week. no exceptions
    • my body is my temple. cut out red meat and alcohol for at least the next 3 months, and only sparingly after that. i had a nutritionist draw me up a plan and i'm sticking with it


    financially

    • stop being so risk averse and passing on great investing opportunities. swing for the fences with amounts that it wouldn't kill me to completely lose.
    • turn my hobby money into investing money. i have enough suits, pants, shoes, outerwear, etc (blasphemy!)

    personally

    • just stop caring about the bullshit at work that stresses me out. i'm going to do my work and make the decisions i'm paid to make. i have a job where i tend to get second guessed a lot so i am going to just start telling people to fuck off
    • have sex at least 5 times a week :D

    I've done pretty well at hitting my goals for the past few years, so I am happy with that. for the past few years I have been trying to get our house organized, and I think that we were able to get that done by new years (this past). I've been trying, in parallel, to get a better handle on our budget, and I hope that this year I will be able to keep the house neat, while feeling that we are totally on top of our budget. that would thrill me.

    I am still trying to loose a little more weight, but that is on target, I've slowed down on my weight loss, but not gone backwards or stopped loosing altogether.

    50% to my weight target already. The savings target is a bloody mess though since I'm trying to get my expenses paid at work.

    Try to spend under 200 pounds on clothes this year because I just bought a new house...

    My clothing budget has been decimated
