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,

    Thanx for the link, Kai. Â I think I'll give 'em a try. BTW, what is that horrible avatar of yours? Â Quite scary, actually.

    Jill, I agree with your assessment of thread count. Â This is one area where bigger is better (and I'm not getting into the other areas). Â And you're absolutely correct; you can purchase 1000 TC nowadays at real good prices. Â Once you go 'high count' you can never go back. Try this place for down pillows; I'm a BIG fan and I've been using their products for quite a while now. Â For traveling, they even make a small down "carry pillow" with its own cotton carry case; I have one and don't travel without it. Good luck. http://www.scandiadown.com/

    I recently bought a memory foam mattress. It is to die for.

    You'll have a hard time finding sheets at Wal-Mart for less than $20. If it was a slip and you meant $200, you can get some decently nice sheets at Bed, Bath & (The Great) Beyond. I haven't looked recently, but you can also check out www.bluefly.com to see what they have.

    Doesn't apply for Brian SD, but if you're in New York, Century 21 is excellent for bedding.

    Where do you get Frette in Holland? I have never seen it here, not even in the nicest bedding stores.

    You don't mean those 'NASA-foam' matrasses by any chance? The ones they say that react to your body temperature and take shape accordingly?

    They might feel good, but in the long term will cause back aches because they will not give you the support you need.

    We buy our Frette and Pratesi in Italy. Porthault in France.
