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

    This seems insane.

    Then again, I used to do it too and for far less money.

    There were nights I didn't even bother going home. I just pushed through till 6-7pm the following night.

    I am happy that stage of my career is (mostly) done. Old men just can't do those hours and still manage to have a social life like you kids do.

    I think I'm mostly past it anyway.

    I dont understand how one can afford bespoke in NYC on an associate's salary. I mean I KNOW exactly how much you make.

    This thread makes me appreciate "fitness for duty" and "fatigued worker policy". Nothing like working with stuff that can kill.

    Did [​IMG] ever get to go home? [​IMG] You see these guys who keep a full rotation of shirts @ the office and a razor in the top drawer of their desk - this doesn't bode well for the AM washing/drying/ironing routine....

    There's nothing that can't be done between the hours of 9-5 that can't wait 'till tomorrow is how I roll.

    I work to live, not the other way 'round. I was a keener when I started working too. Didn't get me anywhere, because the a$$-kissers still got the promotions.

    I've done this on several occasions. I find it extremely exhilarating working under intense pressure.

    What is this so-called 'social life' of which you speak?
