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,

    hmm...I dig that man. A lot. any pics of it hanging?
    I gave it away when I moved. It's actually quite small, 5x7" or so. The plastic thing is a cover for a photo frame. I'd make a bigger one if I can find a bigger plastic thing.

    Masking tape and spraypaint. Post a pic when you're done. Perhaps you will like this: [​IMG] This was a display box for baseballs. I painted for about a year and then stopped right around the time when my store started taking off. The excuse I give myself is that menswear is now my creative outlet, but I'd still like to find some time to paint again in the future.

    I have a separate (from the rest of the bathroom) toilet room in the master bath. I've got a framed print of Picasso's Don Qixote on one wall and a framed print of a Matisse nude on the other wall (my tastes have changed to where I'm not going to put prints in common areas and I spent too much on the framing to toss them). There's a niche next to the linen cabinet where I have a standing 5 or 6 shelf rack of rolled bathtowels, handtowels, and washcoths arranged descendingly from lightest to darkest, top to bottom. The tub is open on one side, with a windowed wall opposite and the shower on the bow end. On the stern wall above the towel rack I have a framed abstract oil that I won at a charity auction.

    I've got framed posters of my favorite Broadway shows that I've attended in my second bedroom bathroom, and a framed piece of artwork in the downstairs/guest bathroom. However, in the 5 years I've lived there the showers in those bathrooms have been used never and twice, respectively.

    I'd suggest towels to deaden the echoes. Plants would work also. I haven't had any problems with my master bath artwork, but that's probably due in part to the fact that that the prints are in a fairly self-contained area and (moreso) because I take 98% of my showers at the gym.

    I've had the same problem, the sound of recharging my electric toothbrush while I was shaving really drove me nuts. You need to break the sound waves which are reflected by a plain wall. As you mentioned a steamy room, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monstera could be of use. Put some of these "wall tattoos" onto the tiles. The stickers and the leafs will already diffuse the sound enough to compensate the echo. Another good trick is a bathroom radio, just make sure the loudspeaker is not pointing at you.
