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.

    Hope everyone had a good holiday. Wanted to vent a little after some "fun" on 12/24. So the shoebank thing pretty much sucks - everything is basically unchanged, the bourbon stuff is mostly more than it was before the holiday, and the black Friday stuff was reduced to the same as black Friday. Ok...

    But the sale on the 1sts is pretty damn good. There's a few real steals in there, along with some others that aren't bad. Last time I had such a bad experience at the retail store I haven't been back since September. I figured what the hell, I gave them a call asking for 2 to be ordered. I got an employee I knew, he knew me, not an AM, not the SM. Gave me the same bullshit lecture as last time - I don't know if I can get them, etc. you should be lucky to pay full retail with a size like 7D, it's hard to find. If I were you I wouldn't even look at closeouts, etc. I felt like Neo in that interrogation scene. How about if I give you the finger...I picked up the phone, called Ben, he got them, no fuss, done. Unbelievable. Ben's the man. They're no longer available by the way - good I didn't wait or fool around with the retail store any more.

    Maybe I missed it in your post, but what was it that you bought?

    I picked up the last Strand Duffle Bag last week, and it is a thing of beauty. It was difficult to justify the price (even at a pretty steep discount), but it should get some good use for many years and my wife seems to like it too.

    I had bought the Strand Double Flap Briefcase for my brother for Christmas, but before I shipped it to him I talked to him about it and it turns out he wouldn't have much use for it (commutes to a tech job in California on his bike). So now I'm sitting here with a gorgeous briefcase that matches my new duffle bag, but I already own a Saddleback brown messenger briefcase that should last forever. I just can't seem to bear the thought of parting with the Strand briefcase either!

    Decisions, decisions.

    My boots have seen heavy wear lately, despite the warm weather. Pulled a few out to brush, wipe, condition, dress the edges, polish, brush, and brush some more. The Shakers held up well after a long hike, lots of play in sand, rocks while on the playground and around a bunch of excited dogs...but certainly needed some tlc. I've had them for 1-2 years and this is the first time they have seen any polish at all. Went with "old" chili this time; next time they'll get hit with Bob's.
    (Please forgive the unmade bed. It's been a slow morning.)

    Depending how rough your winters are, once or twice a season. The salt and slush in NYC winters warrant a few applications before putting them away.

    I will be going to a retail store for the first time tomorrow (maybe if we have time). Do they have sales independent of the website?
