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.

    Sweet jacket, Romp! Wear in good health.

    Can anyone ID the HK tailor that has done these jackets? I grabbed these off the Merino Brothers facebook page, and my basic understanding is that they are a HK distributor for Harrisons, H Lesser, etc.

    Unrelated side note - watched Prisoners on the laptop today. That movie gave me the heebie jeebies. Great acting by JG. Okay from HJ.

    Will have to get your thoughts on how best to wear it, PS.

    As for Movember, the moustache is coming along well. Here's a progress update from sunny Sydney. It rained today, but got this picture.

    The hat, the glasses, the pink shirt. You, my friend, are the one who should be handing out the advice.

    After a little longer than anticipated in the (long awaited) Melbourne sun today I think I will spend this week known as Pink Face, not Pink Socks.

    I can't do hats or facial hair. The risk of this is too high:

    You have my admiration, and my money.

    I've also nominated you for this next year, you are a shoe-in.

    Know there are a few Scotch aficionados here tonight on LNL on RN ABC Johnnie Walker, the world's No. 1-selling Scotch whisky, is conquering the global middle class, which is expected to reach 4.9 billion by 2030. It’s no longer a product, but a life style in countries like China, where 20 million people come of drinking age every year.

    I disagree - that ad is basically taking a giant consumerist dump on the memory of an artist.
    Typical and questionable Chinese behaviour as well: reject him when he was alive, but accept him as one of your own when it became profitable.
    Don't like drinking JW either, which doesn't help...

    Can't say I'm a fan of that ad either... I wonder how much the execs at diageo really understand about Bruce Lee's philosophy... I really hold Bruce Lee in extremely high esteem, I think culturally he was a pioneer as much as he was in his art. I'm not sure Johnnie Walker reflects that, and I just cannot to this day separate diageo from thalidomide - the photos of that are about as severe as I have ever seen...

    Interesting I didn't know Diageo owned JW, there was an article in today's SMH about how they own Bundaberg Rum and how they want to upscale Bundy away from its 'bogan' image.

    As for that ad it just shows that ethical integrity and respect for the dead is no impediment when it comes to securing market dominance.
