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,

    I have been watching this thread for a while now trying to come up with something good, but I am having trouble. I have just a few in mind:

    1. Play Pebble/Spyglass
    2. Travel around Asia
    3. Live on the beach where I run a restaurant/bar

    Sorry, Spyglass Hill and Pebble Beach are two golf courses in California. Both in the top 10 in the world, both $300+ to play.

    No big deal, I am sure a lot didnt know what it meant.


    BTW-you should learn to golf. Hardest sport by far, but it is well worth it.

    Ii tried once, my last company sent all the guys in sales to golf school. I was living, at the time, in a country with a total of 27 holes of golf, and I spent a lot of time trying to get to my lessons and to get to practice sessions at a range and putting tee. I saw the potential. but I didn't have the time to develop at all. maybe in the future. I wish I was able to focus the time on a hobby that I really like, first.

    I am your father. Listen good. No one is climbing Mount Everest anything. Ok, now, everyone go back to what you were doing.

    Very sad - jealousy and trash talking are not a good way to start off the new year. Instead, why don't you go out, bust your butt training for a year and applying for permits and go accomplish something. Until you do, you can kiss my ass.

    I always frame my goals in the short term, so nothing too dramatic here:

    1. Get my thesis done and graduate.
    2. Get into a top 6 law school (ideally this admission cycle, since my apps were all sent in).
    3. Get laid (this is always on the list no matter what).
    4. Get an exciting summer job.
    5. Start relearning Latin and Spanish, and maybe trying to teach myself basic Italian.

    GQLawyer: any good Everest or other climbing stories to share?
