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,

    Thanks Gerry.
    Complimenti to you too.

    Meanwhile Luke J asked me to post a recent pic of him in the Middle East - dressed up.

    Today's observations:

    (1) I bought my dad a pair of AO General Aviators for Christmas. Not a fan of them. They're chunkier, and the nose-bridge is narrower than the traditional Ray-Ban Aviators.

    (2) as I can't get a good fit from sneakers with a wider foot, I'm considering phasing them out of my wardrobe.

    Hats off to the blokes at Mensbiz in the Royal Arcade. I've always had a good online experience with them, so visiting Melbourne I went into the shop for a squiz and decided to get a neckshave. They didn't charge me.

    Also went to Double Monk, what an amazing shop.

    1) ??? Randolph / AO are the actually USAF ones (they trade the contract). This seems so backwards.

    2) My KRISVANASSCHE sneakers wear wide if that helps.

    I got a Christmas card from them with a complimentary shave. It's a shame it is for Melbourne only :(.

    I shave twice a week, and I am old enough to shave.

    So much sprezz. He looked like he just walked out of a fitting to have a smoke and was like, what the hell, I'll shoot some guys too.

    I got one of those shave vouchers last year. When I was last in Melb I walked in, handed the guy the voucher, and took my shirt off.

    As an aside, fxh can usually be relied on to post your bail, if required.

    I've seen that video on LiveLeak. It ended about as well as my last trip to Melbourne.

    Don't edit your posts Jimmy, it makes my jokes look even more out of context than normal.

    I initially thought you were alluding to something, but if there is one thing I've learned - don't make assumptions.

    What's your shaving routine? Badger brush with cut throat?

    I have no idea where that video is from by the way. Never seen it.
