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 live in the country, and names in my area are fairly standard. Irish names are commonplace, and then you have the the good old Mikes, Joes, Johns, etc.

    Then some people went and named their child Abcde. The first 5 letters of the alphabet.

    Abcde.

    Pronunciation: Ab-sid-dee.

    I went to Walmart today and the cashier's nametag said "Serra." I thought "Oh like the artist. Actually, probably not. Probably like Sarah, but....spelled wrong."

    met a baby boy named "General Lee" - that is, first name "general" last name "lee". not as in the heroic historical figure, as in the red car with a stripe.

    gotta wonder about people......


    Saw a guy in a wedding announcement the other day: Harold Dick, II. Seriously, Harry Dick.

    Saw a story in the Dallas Morning News that mentioned a little girl named Jazzman. I suspect that the parents were phonetically trying to name their girl "Jasmine". [​IMG]

    An old man who lived in the town I grew up in was named Richard Head. The guy insisted you call him Dick too.

    I'm not making this up.
