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 agree that the host spoilt it - more about him than his subject. However, always interesting to see a factory tour of a shoemaking company!

    Looks like there still is a lot of human hands touching the shoe. I would have imagined a lot more automation but this is interesting. Buy Buy Buy..... the pound is under 1.45 dollars now.

    Wow, that woman has been perf-ing for 25 years!

    Cool video. Thanks for posting. Amazing that they've been in business pretty much doing the same thing for so long.

    lnteresting how welt uses a chain stitch instead of a lock stitch.

    The suit collar on founder was bad fit,
    me would think suit would be handmade in that day,
    but bad collar fit.

    it sounds so delicious when the English say the word "shoe".

    it almost sounds chewy and caramely when they pronounce it.
