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.

    Pet peeve of mine. It's like you hit a certain sq. footage and you're suddenly supposed to be Mormon.

    It's not necessarily all for kids. When your kids have kids of their own, it's nice to have rooms for grandkids. Plus, when you have a $30 million apartment, chances are you have live-in staff, want to be able to entertain house guests, etc. Having 8 bedrooms doesn't necessary mean you have 7 kids. It just means you are ready for any eventuality.

    Mike Tyson's old house in CT is for sale. It has a dance club, among other things. Probably needs a full STD fumigation before a new buyer moves in.

    3 + 3, +/- 1800 s.f. Downstairs bathroom is toilet and shower, the upstairs is toilet and tub/shower combo, and the master bath has a toilet room, walk-in shower, and separate soaking tub. I've had guests use the downstairs shower, but other than the inspector when I bought the place, no one's ever turned on the shower or tub in the second bathroom.

    I thought Curtis Jackson owned that house.

    That sounds pretty sweet imo.

    Ouch, $30 mill for that sq footage? Reminds me why I'm just a medium timer in a medium sized pond.

    Yeah what keeps the price low is that I'm in Mexican town. But it's awesome, taquerias and Mexican bakeries abound. Great place if you don't fear brown people. I love it. I really like the layout too, my complex was built in the 60s and renovated in the 90s I believe. It is nice. Full of cobblestone courtyards, old street lights, etc. Very well kept, and like stepping back in time when I walk around the complex. edit: I shouldn't really use the word "Mexican", I think the majority of Hispanics in the Gulfton area are El Salvadorian.
