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'd suggest losing the security /door pass.

    Bugger - just got home - forgot all about it - so I have no lollies - if any snot nosed neighbourhood kids knock on my door, in piss poor half arsed costumes, I'll tell them to "Feck Off" a la Fr. Jack, or offer them some healthy broccoli salad.

    No Uni tomorrow?

    I must have missed something when did Oz become a suburb of the USA?

    I was thinking the same thing.

    When did Halloween become a tradition here?

    When will Australia start to celebrate Thanksgiving?

    I don't think its anywhere near as pervasive in Australia as it is in the US. Still, I guess the internet means that traditions become global.

    Yes please you can book me a ticket


    Don't think so it's been a purely commercial push by certain retailers

    Oh undoubtedly - I am referring to the lack of pumpkins around, or people going to haunted house attractions

    Given that no one's turned up to my door, every kid at school was bored by Halloween and the near complete interest people have in it in Australia I'd say it's even a failed commercial venture.

    Certainly doesn't signal some US-led cultural takeover of wickle Australia.

    It's not really new, been around for ages. We used to carry it at Fletcher Jones. Just another name or tropical weight essentially. It's good stuff though.

    Actually there are more kids roaming the streets in costume here tonight than we used to get in San Diego. Over there, they all went to the one place and the local businesses put on a party for them. If you weren't interested you could just ignore it. US parents do not let their kids roam the streets even in the nicest neighbourhoods.

    All this brainwashing is down to lazy primary school teachers who find it easier to inculcate kids with American culture than our own. Bring back cracker night! It's never a bad idea to remind Parliment that we can blow them up.

    The Baldwin Henley in the California Wash were I jean I always wanted to get but could never find my size.

    Ended up getting the J Brand Tyler in Beatnik Wash a few months ago - http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/designer-j-brand-tyler-perfect-slim-jean-item-10350725.aspx

    If I am honest I sometimes feel they are a little too "skinny" for me.

    My other pair of washed jeans are a pair of Gant Dad Jeans (straight cut, almost too baggy for me) - I wear them most weekends with a rumpled button down and my Common Projects in a look I think of my "Andy Spade".



    I am surprised and confused by the anti Halloween stance here.

    As someone who spend many happy years in Scotland guising (UK version of treat or trick - basic you perform a little act, liked reciting a poem, for sweets) I do not see how there can be an issue with kids dressing up and having fun.
