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 don't think the over thirties on SF grew up with the use of taking the piss in in writing.

    AS 724 is nearly the same, with a slightly more square toe. With the 109 last, which most of AS shoes are on, they take a bit to get used to, since to the smart round toe may cause discomfort when new to your pinky toe.

    Probably not a good idea to bet against Elon Musk. The Internet has some reports that he is thinking of doing a demonstration prototype.

    I share your views on our infrastructure malaise.

    A new airport in Sydney is mooted to cost $3b and is estimated to take 7 years to build. I am just wondering whether it makes more sense to build the Hyperloop, ban commercial domestic flights between Syd and Melb, hence freeing up capacity at the current airports in both cities. Would that be as good, if not better, than spending money on a new airport?

    That's why you ply them with plenty of drinks first.

    It's a low blow to raid FxH's Facebook profile pictures and post them on here.

    Don't worry FxH, I'm looking out for you.

    Well, the Musk proposal has a maximum capacity of 840 passengers per hour in one direction. Sydney to Melbourne is in the top 5 highest patronage routes in the world. A single 747 can carry 660 passengers, so I can't see any way those domestic passengers could possibly be accomodated under such a scheme.

    I think 840 is only for one tube. The design allows for more than one tube, plus it operates 24/7.

    A brief google says that total passengers between Syd-Mel is about 7m per year, and of course, this will grow. This works out to about 800 per hour, assuming 24/7 operations. There are complications regarding peak hour travel and work days, and I am too dumb to work those out.

    You don't the boy has to wait till at least 2am when mum and dad are sound asleep. Bring her in and hope she is not a screamer. Then wait for mum and dad to go to gym next morning and sneak her out.

    Or else the parents who know she is in son's room and discreetly open door to his room and say we are going out and well be back at 1pm.

    This enables him to get her out so you don't have to meet her.

    Then mum and dad have discussion on how to deal with this new scenario.

    Osiris2012, if you like the feel of insoles, doesn't hurt to keep buying size 8.

    Anyone who lives under a flight path in Sydney knows that passenger flights don't run 24/7.

    Nah I only actually purchased them to mitigate a bit of the width in the first pair of loakes so im not married to them. Thanks to you and burnso for the fit advice sounds like the 7.5 will fit and the other members fit pics posted looked pretty good. $100+ off and free shipping, I would be losing money if I didnt jump on that :p (haha the excuses to justify some purchaes)
