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,

    Er, what? You're joking, right?

    Making blanket statements like, "women aren't very good at shopping for males" isn't sexist, but saying, "women find wealth and signs of wealth attractive", is?

    You can't see the forest from the trees :(.

    I don't think they do.

    In a magazine you might see some Gucci model surrounded by women, but that's not the sort of guys women spend time with and date in their day-to-day lives.

    I don't need Microsoft Word. I just read a lot.

    Anyway, I agree with you, but this is a totally different topic of conversation to what you were referring to originally.

    Really? You honestly think this?

    Anyway, this is definitely OT.

    Most women go for guys who aren't socially inept (that excludes me) and whose values are somewhat comparable to their own.

    Then there's the whole Freudian concept of women dating guys like their fathers, which has been my experience. However, I'll leave it to PoP/FXH/GF to explain that one.

    This is a good attitude toward watch purchasing. You do still need to pay attention to ensuring you get value for money. Both these companies have enormous advertising budgets and undoubtedly this will be factored into their pricing. Omegas can be found at good discounts, Rolexes less so. However Rolexes tend to hold their value better. (The two go hand in hand - Rolex keep iron control over their retailers and tend to cut off ADs who give too many discounts. This in turn helps to support resale value, along with other little stunts like running "Rolex-only" auctions where key pieces are inflated up to ludicrous prices and then miraculously appear a few months later in the "Rolex museum" or some such.)

    Whatever. When you're the Dark Star, you can get away with such shenanigans.

    I'm sure the feeling's mutual, although potentially not confined by an age bracket.
    It's certainly a totally different conversation to the one that you thought I was referring to. Maybe read a bit less, and slower?

    This Rolex building looks suspiciously like the new NSA complex.

    Of course, I always try to get the best deals possible. But I buy what I like and get the best deal possible with them (I take my time with any such purchase). I don't really care about any other factor.

    Maybe he's sexist? It doesn't take much in this day and age to be labelled as sexist/racist/homophobic.

    Now you're just being nasty and rude.

    Is that a backhand to someone else? If it's to me, it's unwarranted.

    I dunno man maybe he is, maybe he isn't. I don't him well enough to judge. Or, maybe it doesn't take much to be labelled as sexist, racist and/or homophobic in this day and age because a lot of people are.

    I think that was when Gianni's thirst was at an all time high. I miss him, and his compliments.
