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,

    I'm guessing it's what he was issued in the army.

    Yeah me too - last I went for something it was all stripped back, protestant feeling, plus tres embarrassment, happy times Hillsong simplistic songs without melody, tune or meaning. And instead of Dominus Vobiscum and et cum spiritu tuo, its turning around and hugging and kissing strangers or something and telling them you, or jesus, love them. eeeow ugh.

    Sadly the right wingers and nutters have snaffled the latin mass so now its a symbol of defiance and repression.

    So even if you can find a sung latin mass its full of priestly peadophiles on parole or not yet caught, Hansonites, DLP voters, League of Rights members and Opus Dei acolytes. Its a sad old world isn't it.

    Dang, wish I knew! I copped some APCs a few weeks back, in search of the 'slim, not skinny' look. Oh well...

    Fewer and fewer of these in particular as the years pass. Thankfully.

    Ernesto, LoR , or CEC, or LaRouch dopes control a lot of rural councils and DLP has a fed senator in Ballarat, mainly due to preferences not votes

    Order from MJ Bale arrived last week. Tobias Jacket and chino. Fuck me the chino's were skinny. Just thought I'd post in case someone else was thinking of getting a pair and didn't want to look like a 16 year old.

    The tobias jacket was a lot more casual than expected as others have noted so it's all going back for a pair of the harley trousers which I tried on today (and an additional $200 for the jacket).

    Yeah, fair point. The Larouchite scum seem to have filled the void left by any decrepitude in the LoR ranks.There's also a DLP d#ckhed in the Vic upper house.

    Rocked a Madras shirt last night, along with my Black Acne Jeans(which are not skinny). I boiled, never wearing flannel to Survivor again.

    Taken by the official function photographer using my camera (a point and shoot). I always thought that being able to focus a shot was an important skill for a photographer - obviously not!

    im on a hunt for a new briefcase/tote and would appreciate suggestions

    Can be either leather or canvas (or combo) but mustnt be overly heavy

    currently use a filson 256 which i find is a tad cheapo and also has become too small for my new role.

    Daily carrying requirements:
    13inch macbook air + charger + mouse
    Mini ipad
    pens
    cards
    notebook
    lunch container

    Id be guessing that the filson 257 would be an ideal size but I dont want another filson. Ettinger was on the list but a bit too "blogger" for me

    not overly concerned about price - just want to find the "ideal" bag for me price aside i.e. I value quality and practicality - whether it be $50 or $500

    Gerry's suggestion is nice, although I'm biased as it looks a lot like mine. Still, it's nice and will age well. Bags of this calibre almost all look better 3+ years down the line than when you just buy them, but you already know that :)
