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,

    You want to avoid paying tax but you're not asking the Greek?

    You've made your bed.

    Wearing a new purple micro-gingham shirt from Luxire today, my first with the fabled 'NOBD' collar (curved! genius!). The fabric is lovely and I have (even if I do say so myself) nailed the fit. Feeling very grateful to SF for freeing me from the fresh hell of poorly fitting shirts :D

    For the interested:

    Where did you get that from? There s no duty - only GST IIRC

    Depends what it is too - you can say - get some shoes Loakes, shipped from Pediwear/Herring etc to a friend in UK FREE then they can ship them as a gift to you in Oz - GST free. But in that case you will pay UK VAT - which is higher than oz GST

    I noticed after many years of not going OS that you can bring in over 2 litres of booze as well instead of the usual 1 lite of years ago.

    2.25 litres to be exact - which equates to three bottles of wine. Very kind of them not to set it at 2.24.

    Damned alcohol limits! I was going to buy one of these 4L bottles of well-aged whisky in Japan but then realised that I'd have to drink almost half of it before I could take it onto the plane!

    I recently (2 months ago) bought some stuff off them, and no prices have not really gone up.

    Selection has expanded though - markedly, and quality is IMO better now from their Italian factory as opposed to the old Dutch one.
