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,

    Mine is Ermenegildo Zegna; They got me started into Italian clothing. And, I love their patterns on ties.

    A few years back he had an amazing exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum - everything was beautiful. They now have a really nice Chihuly piece in their perminant collection.

    I was there, V Man . . . went with my Museum Mates. The Calatrava Museum is a must, see. Set directly on Lake Michigan . . . with a convertible roof that parts, to set birds free to flap in the breeze. Stunning.

    Mine is now Brioni.

    Don't have to explain why; the name speaks for itself.

    Let's all have cat avatars. I wish I could have a cat at my new place. That's one of the only things that slightly bugs me about it. Cats are so maligned by apartment managers, it's really unfair. [​IMG]

    I had one before the crash. Looking for one currently.

    What does yours mean or why did you pick it?

    Did you change it since starting over?

    RenÃ[​IMG] Magritte: The Pleasure Principle (Portrait of Edward James) [​IMG] I really like Magritte, and the picture fits the forum... PS: the downscaled image looks strange, can anyone help me resizing it without losing details?

    My avatar is, of course, a picture of myself. I chose it because I am narcissistic.

    Koji, could you please explain the name Thracozaag? If it's somehow obvious, it's been flying right over my head.

    No problem (it's been explained before here, I think)--friend of mine needed a cool name for a jewel thief from Amsterdam.
    Imagine my surprise to see it show up as an intergalactic villain in the Tick (although I believe they spell it "thrakorzog" or something).

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, as they say. Cool story. Thanks for the explanation.
