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.

    Order placed today for a customized bag very similar to this (adding some interior details and a newspaper pocket in the back) as well as a 3-ring notebook (notebook will not be all hand stitched due to cost.)

    I will make sure to post detailed photos of everything when it gets here in about 6 weeks (but perhaps less).

    Right not we are working out some interior pocket details. Going to be something like this:

    In addition, I wanted a zip pocket for my passport and other valuables. The maker was loathe to mount a zipper (which will eventually fail) in his beautiful bag and suggested a removable pocket attached with a d-ring like so:
