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.

    Ha! Tony, my black croc strap is still at Hughes' workshop - I need to be in Singapore at the same time as him to get the hole measured and pierced. I got the underside of the strap in navy croc to match the hands. I wonder if the strap can be reversible....

    I not so sure if the strap can be reversible just looking at the end of the strap part wrapping the pin. That's the same reason for me to order the navy strap because of the hands.

    I cannot stand the feel of wearing bracelets, nor do I like the look, but they do look good with certain outfits.

    Just left Oscar Hunt, black pants and cord sports jacket ordered.

    Had an appointment with Benjamin from Suit your style yesterday. Very nice guy, ordered a navy 3 roll 2 suit and two spread collar shirts. Fairly excited.

    Hence the public reaction to the Federal Budget.

    For those with nothing better to do tonight, eg no footy or pub the SOH is streaming Emanuel Ax with the SSO preform the Beethoven piano concertos 1 &2. Sadly Mrs GF is taking me to Henry V tonight. Not that I'm complaining.

    Ax is a genius. I rate him up there with Andras Schiff and Paul Badura-Skoda, perhaps even the mighty Alfred Brendel as an interpreter of early Romantic piano music.

    Wish I had tix. But we're invited to a dinner party at a friend's place. I assume the broadcast is on ABC Classic FM?

    Hey I thought Olli was the only one who could talk about Joe & Tony in that manner.

    Re Ax it's a live stream via the SOH website. Don't know if ABC FM is doing it.

    The Sales seem to have started. Sydney CBD is chaos. All the low-end shops have red window signs. I imagine the high-end boutiques are keeping their powder dry for a week or two down the track. I'll be overseas though, far away from temptation.

    Got a good classical music story for youse. I was attending a music festival in Lübeck, northern Germany. There were master classes all day at the conservatorium, and it was lunchtime. I sat down with a couple of people I had met earlier. The conversation turned to the Bach cello suites and how they should be played. I expounded loudly and at length on the subject, after which the elderly lady sitting next to me started plying me in a strong Russian accent with further questions, all of which I answered with a tone of great authority.

    "And what is your name, young man?" she asked. I told her, and asked for hers. "My name is Tatiana Nikolayeva, and I'm very pleased to meet you."

    My ever-so-polite listener was one of the greatest Bach interpreters of the 20th century. Boy, did I go red.
