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.

    Spoke-hub distribution (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoke–hub_distribution_paradigm). As it enters progressively larger networks, it passes through their respective hubs.

    Some hubs can be in the same place but service different networks (a sort of "vertical" move). You might have a small city near an airport that picks up all the packages from regional hubs for international flights - one more name on the list.

    I've tried to remove an ink stain. Tried Sard and scrubbing, Vanish even tried Eucalyptus oil all to no avail. Any suguestions?

    What I just read was that it was the alcohol content in hairspray that removed the stain and that worked best on polyester. There are a number of gins in the cupboard so I'll try the Bombay Saphire.

    It's cotton below the elbow and its from a Uni-ball eye rollerball. The gin could be a good idea because if it doesn't work I'll just drink the gin.
