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,

    My weekend has been pretty great so far. Burning rubber up and down the peninsula.

    Also, someone on here got an SS jacket in light grey a month or so ago. Can anyone remember who it was?

    For those who don't have access to Mei & Picchi, Aldi is selling wide shouldered beechwood suit hangers at the moment for 7$. They also have a trouser bar with a rubber texture to stop slippage. Pretty nice.

    Quote:I just went and had a look. They're not great - no wider than the wood ones they sell at Big W.

    I source my suit hangers from here. Works out to about $7-8 per hanger.

    Remember that Herringbone trench coat that got posted here? Went into Emporium, they have it down to $549, and they have another 25% off of that. Only navy and camel colours left at Emporium, sizes 40 and above. Wanted to see the chocolate brown but they don't have that anymore, so had to settle with the camel coloured one. Ended up paying $411.

    No longer on website.

    @lukejackson - I'm just back from a week in Japan and am keen to arrange some sort of catch-up.

    Evening could work but I may not be free in the evening until August.

    However, if you happen to be around the city, we could always catch up for lunch or coffee and I'm sure that I can rope some others into coming along, too.

    Thanks PS. That DB5 is really quite lovely, and possibly my dream car.

    It's my Old Man's, he let me take it out today, was a really great time. I have a Jensen Healy that I've spoken about a long while ago, dad's got the Cobra half apart and is rebuilding the diff at the moment, but as soon as that's out, and I've retiled the laundry I'm going to put the Jensen in there, strip it, get it repainted(going British Racing Green), and restore it.

    In other news, finished work at 11PM tonight, got home, pulled up my movie list to find something to watch and chucked on The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. I'm about half way through now, but I've paused it to come write this, partially to drag out the movie experience because I really do not want to reach the end.

    I've seen a lot of films and television shows. Very few move me or making me 'feel' anything. Off the top of my head I can really only say that Schindler's List and Senna have made me feel anything, but I know there's a couple more than that.

    I have never felt more motivated or more inspired by anything than I have by this. It's really fantastic, and I'm really inspired. Already sent some messages out to friends saying that I'll be grabbing a tent, throwing some clothes in my car and driving up somewhere and pitching a tent. I have a great selection of camping areas due to being a scout leader. It's time for me to start living a whole lot more. I spend far too much time worrying about things that really don't matter in the long run.

    I am also about a hundred pages into Zen and the Art of Motorcycle maintenance. A big thankyou to FXH, LM and anyone else who suggested it to me. I bought it back when you suggested I read it about six months ago, but coding books and Game of Thrones got in the way. It's really quite good. Even at 100 pages in, I recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it.

    HARDCORE ZEN is still the most readable book about Zen that I've found.

    Study day. Heading out to try a Filipino place for brunch. Hope you've all had a good weekend!

    *Nice wheels, Foxy.

    Sorry about the blurry 2nd pic. Samsung has its fickleness, sometimes producing nice shots like the first one and sometimes the exact opposite.
