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,

    Wear it. A lot. Although I've never resorted to it, some people sleep in their jackets for a week or two. I am not sure there are any shortcuts, and I am still breaking in a Vanson motorcycle jacket that I bought last summer..

    Thanks. Failed to consider the sleeping option but when I think about the suits I've rumpled by nodding off in them it makes sense:)
    Thanks for writing

    Shovel snow in it. Do yard chores. Essentially, anything that is manual labor but you are not actually going to get slashed.

    If it's a horsehid jacket, just throw it in the washer, and the wear it around a bit when it is still damp. Of course, the shoveling snow is a bit more honest.
