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 have a pair of silver Tiffany cufflinks that I love and wear often. Today while putting them on, one link snapped off wear the bar meets the solid back surface on the face of the link. Has anyone had this happen and had it fixed by a jeweler? Is it worth it?

    I've never done it but from what I understand it's a pretty simple fix using a soldering iron of some sort. Probably not too expensive. Just take it in somewhere and ask.

    If the link can be heated without destroying some part of the face, a particular danger if they are enameled, it's a simple repair. If there is heat sensitivity they have to be sent out to be laser welded and that's over $100.
