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,

    Why do you believe this to be the case?

    Michael, you probably think suede fits you better due to the fact it's a lot more supple than calf leather.

    And you would need to wear your shoes a few more times over longer distances to confirm the fit.

    Speaking of drugs, I just learnt recently that original, wild, uncultured lettuce can be used as legal marijuana replacements. Which was probably why Hippocrates said "Food is medicine", except that modern plants are cultivated to be full of water and sugars that all herbal/drug benefits are lost. No more crop rotation also means no more nutrients left in the plant. There goes my hopes of ever getting high on rocket...

    You might be confusing this with the old "devil's lettuce" nickname...

    Also, rocket would be a great name for a drug.

    Thanks Gerry, Richard and Fxh.

    Looks like I'm getting it all wrong today.

    Breaking in my Bestetti today....one of the sexiest waist on the shoes I've handled. This is inspired by the 7000 last so in my eyes this is 7000 last Mk II :)

    Ernesto, I don't know if it's still the case but you used to see a few light-coloured linen or cotton suits from places like Anthony Squires and Herringbone in the summer. I've got a beige-coloured Japanese cotton suit from Herringbone that's lasted me for some years and which is very nice in summer. I've also got a "sand"-coloured suit (for want of a better descriptor) from Deer Style that gets quite a lot of wear in summer, both as a suit and as separates.

    As for "how far can you go?", I suppose that I go pretty far at times, as I sometimes wear a cotton or light-coloured wool suit with a knit tie and a pair of calf-and-canvas spectator shoes.

    I'm planting lettuce.

    I'd assume you'd have to chomp a container full of lettuce at a time to get as much high as half a panadeine.

    So no one smokes dried banana skin any more?

    Would rather listen to watch and camera discussions than listen to the Halloween debate again.
