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,

    ^Lovely tie. Would love something like that in dark brown. I am just absolutely certain that I will have to pay both tax, custom duties and a fee i fI buy anything from Thailand...

    Today's Hober is the much under-appreciated red tie. This is the dark red diamond weave (3-fold construction).

    Thanks - had not looked on the web site for a few weeks so had not noticed. Will need to add to my wish list.

    That's it. As you can see it's not as dark in real life as in pictures on Sam Hober website.

    If you take a shot, use the post office shipping, not DHL. The courier firms make a special effort to charge you tax and duty even when it's not required, because then they can charge you a $10 'brokerage fee' (I'm still mad at DHL for charging me $30 tax, duty and fees on a gift below the duty-required value some years back). With the post office, experiences vary and of course it'll depend on your country's postal carrier, but for me, I find they frequently don't charge tax/duty.

    Thanks - I would guess the "plum" coulour is also not as dark as well.
