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.

    I have been getting the cheap eBay ones. They are cedar but sizing is funny. I ordered a UK10/43 (usually a uk9 everywhere else). They were too big, so I took the screw/Spring out, meaning the width could not stretch...not sure if this makes sense, but if you buy some you will see what I mean.

    Recently bought some in a uk9/41-42 and these were much better. EDIT My shoe size is normally a uk9 or EU 43.

    There are several sellers with prices from $26 - 30. $55 at double monk also seems ok given the lack of local options, their accessories aren't priced too bad, I won't comment on the shoe prices...other than to say it would be nice to be able to afford to be sized correctly locally instead of gambling online!

    Likewise I'm Canberra based. Seb, maybe there's an opportunity for a concurrent Canberra meetup?

    The US SuitSupply Outlet site has it's annual sale going on in case anyone's interested, and has a US proxy.

    Some good deals there.

    Thanks guys, no more bratz for me though I'm booked in to get the snip in March! We had a daughter, Rosie. 2 girls and 1 boy so I'm out numbered.

    I'm thinking O-Bar in the Australia Square tower for Tuesday's meat-up.

    Thoughts?

    I think the ambient vistas and the company will set the tone!
