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,

    Add another vote for Chicago. Try to fly into Midway instead of O'Hare if possible. Use the airfare savings for a hotel on the Magnificient Mile.

    For what its worth, I think Falling Water is a bit of a drive from Pittsburgh, and I've been to the Warhol Museum. Good museum, but you'll have access to much more in Chicago. If its Wright you want to see go to Oak Park and you can also go through Robie House. and if you go be sure to get a "Char - dog" great hotdogs!

    We would like to avoid hot weather but realize that even Chicago and Toronto will be warm and maybe humid.

    Turns out we can use miles to fly to Chicago or Toronto for free. Haven't checked Montreal. So that cuts the cost way down. I think we're leaning to Chicago. Well, I am anyway. It has a lot going on. And they have architectural tours that sound cool. And since it's in our pool of potential places to move, we should probably check it out. [Btw, Pittsburgh was in there for the Warhol Museum, FLW houses and other interesting architecture, and because we've never been but heard good things.]

    For Toronto I'm surprised no one mentioned the Bata Shoe Museum. A shoe museum people--come on! [​IMG]

    I'm biased, but Toronto is an awesome city. However, July/August is hot and very humid (last summer it was 40+ degrees). At times though it can be a bit blah. I haven't been to Montreal yet but I've literally never heard anything bad about it. Everyone always tells me it's like being in Europe without the 9 hour flight. PM if you would like some hotel/restaurant/attraction rec's for Toronto.

    I've always wanted to go to Detroit.

    The Detroit area is wonderful, both the city and surrounding area. It has its own gritty charm and, though it struggles against immense problems, it's the genuine article.
