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 occasionally buy new BB shirts for wearing to work, but the last two I've purchased have left me rather dismayed when it comes to buttonhole sewing quality. Frays, etc. See pics below: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    um, that is totally fine. just grab a pair of scissors. it is not like you paid 400 for someone to sew them by hand.

    I find a pair of fingernail clippers does wonders for these little strings. Once I bring a shirt home, I usually spend a couple minutes snipping little strings that I feel may be a problem in the washing machine.
