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.

    It seems like I have a lot of great options here. Gotta dwell on it a while. Thanks for all of the help!

    Isnt Barbour (e.g. Beaufort) more versatile and breathable than a trench?

    Exactly as you would read it.

    (which is usually the rule for Latin words; each letter in Classical Latin retains the same phonetic pronounciation regardless of context. I was told that in my very first lesson, as part of a list of reasons why Latin was going to be such an easy-peasy language to learn. That part didn't turn out quite right though; I gave it up at about 13/14. [​IMG]).

    xa xa that makes me a pierced fat girl than)))

    as it is,it has its own drawbacks-my Beaufort is quite wide in the lower part so it gets cold in wind.

    At the risk of offending the rat, tongue/language is lingua not lengua. But who am I to lecture on arselicking?

    The thread has taken a strange turn, but it's still sort of related. I'm sure the WWI trenches were full of rats.

    And if I was feeling dark, I'd also say that a soldier's life in that war was worth about the same as its proverbial backside.

    See, isn't tangentiality wonderful? :)
