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.

    If you can't grow basil, you just can't grow anything.

    They both like sun but basil more so. No special soil needs, just a nice compost mix. Water a little everyday. Plant shit loads of it a few days apart and you'll have pesto for days. The plants can be harvested a few leaves at a time but they go to seed pretty quick.

    Parsley reseeds itself really well and a few plants should be able to keep you going most all year.
