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,

    For the last three and a half years, I've owned and loved my 1998 BMW M3. Great to look at, great to drive. Very reliable. Makes my commute to work much more fun.

    As am I with the internet, and I understand, I was only interested to know, not particually bothered.

    I am still a skeptic, and will be until you let me take the Ferrari for a little spin. You do know that it's either that, or I'm going to put on my valet costume, and get to do so anyway [​IMG]

    Has anyone else played the Playstation game "The Getaway"? I know I've driven past your house in that game.

    Quite impressive indeed. My only query is how a man of such accomplishments and lifestyle has time for something as mundane as the Style Forum. Not a knock on the delightful forum, but, by age and status, it seems rather odd that you would choose to spend your precious free time here kalra. Anyway, beautiful automobile collection and thanks for sharing.

    Terrible.

    Why do I spend time here, because there is nothing else to do when I am staying late at work to sort out things with America.

    I liked it. Felt like I was shooting my way through a Guy Ritchie movie. Seemed a little linear for that type of game, though.

    Was there a fashion designer on board for that one? I remember Ozwald Boateng designed clothing for "Driver 2"...

    Fair enough. I know Nobel Prize winners who obsessively roam the WWW, so it's hardly a surprise that a captain of industry might be the same. People is people.

    My friends and I played it obsessively for about two weeks while listening to The Streets (which had just come out at the time). Most of the time was spent driving what I think is a Jensen (with the big back window) down a long slope and jumping it off a pedestrian walkway through an arch. It was a lot of fun but it got old quickly as well.

    I don't know about any designers on video games, in fact I had never even thought about it. I can tell you, though, that designing clothing in a 3D program is not easy. My avatar is a Poser figure I modified to look like Connery with a hat I had to modify in 3DS MAX from a big cowboy hat or something to look like a proper fedora. The hat alone took a few hours and I had something to start from. I can't imagine designing detailed clothing, let alone the cloth physics.. ugh.

    I have three cars.

    Two are boring: Chevy Suburban, Subaru station wagon.

    One is fun: 2004 Dodge Viper

    Life simply does not get much better than cruising around in the Viper on a sunny Spring day with the top down. (it's pretty sweet at the track too.)

    The STI is an amazing car. I've driven one. Handling and overall performance are superb. If my current Subaru wagon ever dies (still going strong with over 170,000 miles) the STI will replace it. All that "Go" in a car that I can use to drive the kids to school.

    You're right, the wing is super ugly, but I suppose I can get past that.
