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,

    Did you try AS colour? I wear heaps of their stuff. We have a reseller account with them at work so it's cheap as chips for me. Wearing one now actually.

    What's the ideal price range for getting flush metal toe caps on a new pair of shoes in Sydney CBD and what's everyone's recommendations? Just received my pair of Carmina's and was thinking about visiting Coombs or Brices, which seem to be the two cobblers.

    My understanding was that neither cobbler (nor indeed any other in town) will fit flush metal toe taps.

    Someone wrote here that Double Monk have found someone to do this for their own shoes, but they ain't sayin' who.

    I tend to buy all of the non day-to-day things in the household, we buy things along the way, but don't really wait for occasions. So for birthdays, anniversaries and Xmas, we just go out and spend the money on food.

    GF and Dante stood in the lowest circle of Hell where Cerberus was chewing male Christmas shoppers to the accompaniment of Bing Crosby. This way yelled Dante and they began climbing through the rigours of Purgatory. Then within site of Paradise GF spied some navy linen trousers in Mrs GF size which he knew would please her.

    After standing for an eternity at the checkout, the sales woman was busy doing penance via her iPhone, he soon found himself with Dante at the gates of Paradise. "thank God that's over with" said GF. Dante turned and sagely stated "your plastic still has to survive the post Christmas sales with Mrs GF."

    Ps and cash its the safest bet.
