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,

    New present from the wife. Navitimer 01. It's my wedding present. Flying back from the USA at the moment. Spent some time in New York and made a few purchases. Happy to just browse. Unhappy that qantas has made me miss 2 connections and lost me bag with all my New York purchases.

    Nice score and hope qantas find your bag of swag.

    Thanks for digging that up, hrmm can't decide if I could pull off polka dots, looks good on you or whoever was rocking it though.

    I reckon it's worth a shot. Nice to have at least one knit tie with polka dots and this one looks pretty classy.

    I have two straights of differing grinds. Sometimes you want the exquisite "ping" of a hollow ground, but they can be a bit of work.

    I also have my grandfather's razor, a Rolls. It has a built in stone/strop, and the original blades still gives great shaves after 70 years (i have had them properly honed once). Very technically interesting device.

    That said, 90% of my shaves are done with a DE due to laziness. You still get an epic shave, the razors are as satisfying as a straight, and it's almost impossible to stuff up. 20 bucks for a 100 pack of Astra SP's is well over a year's worth of shaving, too.

    Modern cartridges are expensive junk.

    +1. I have an unhealthy fascination with knit ties, and those with polka dots as well.

    +2. I've got quite a few navy knit ties with polka dots - white dots, green dots, pink dots and sky blue dots. All I need to complete the collection is to find a nice navy knit tie with red dots, and then the ever-so-elusive "rainbow" knit tie, with dots of different colours.

    So, I'd say go for it - a polka-dot knit tie looks good with a range of outfits and can be dressed down or dressed up (within reason, of course, remembering that a knit tie is inherently more casual than its woven counterpart).

    JM, you might see both of the ones you are after in the S/S range if you're lucky!

    American Tailors has C&J handgrades for $600, if you push him on the price.
