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.

    I am sure Manton would be shaking his head at all this. LOL! Incorrigible, that is what we are [​IMG]

    Going off-topic is the hallmark of a true SF member. [​IMG]

    Hear hear. I ended up becuase of that finding accidentally some woman's thesis on the forms of politeness in the Cypriot dialect of Greek and the dialect's history. Talk of being a scatterbrain, lol!

    Well, the second mark of an SF member is apparently the love of brown brogue shoes... I still don't fit that one. [​IMG]

    You should feel fortunate that I did not transcribe that whole Life of Brian scene instead of a singular quote [​IMG]

    I love bologna. The deli meat, I mean.
    Countdown to banning... 1... 2... Edit (Fok): Now raley, why would he be banned for such an innocent proclaimation?

    Not unless Peggy Noonan has had a sex change and starting writing about men's suits.

    Jovan, I think you need to adjust your board settings. Go to the main page and click the link for "personal identifiers" and then select "reveal sexual orientation" from the drop-down menu. Then the post from gay members will always end with a little pink smiley like this: [​IMG]

    Or maybe it's those funky shades you're wearing . . .

    Well...

    Hello, sailor! (and I'm Jewish too.)

    Tho' a fruit, I do not yet have my own 'nom de plum.' If I go to the party, do you think that Manton (who plays for the New York Hets, as far as I know) will tell me how to get one?

    Looks like I may not get to go! I just got a rush freelance project.

    I picked up a copy today at B&N (I was planning to purchase the copy tomorrow, but figured I may as well use my B&N discount since I may not make it to the signing). The book looks great from the little I saw so far.

    Three cheers to the publisher for using Mucca Design. They would have been better served using me, but Matteo and company at Mucca do some kick butt design work.

    With some luck I will get to stop by tomorrow.
