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 wouldn't consider gingham CBD.

    +1. A solid pale blue or end-on-end would have been a nice choice. I also have a mental block when it comes to three patch jackets for CBD. Strikes me as too casual/rustic. That just might be me, though.

    That.


    And that.


    I would have gone with a solid tie or at least one with a pattern of a scale different from the check.

    Thank you!

    And if you try to other cells? For example, fine thin cell 0.2-0.7 millimeters could be relevant in the CBD? Or any cell is not appropriate?

    Victor, that is a damned fine suit. I don't like the shirt and the tie together, but I do like them individually.

    I believe the earring and the scraggly beard DQs you from competition, though it is theoretically possible I am wrong.

    If the point of CBD is simplicity and harmony with a conservative business environment, the earring and the beard undermine the effort. It has nothing to do with my opinion, just my understanding of Manton's objective.

    One can only speculate until the authority clarifies.

    I understand it perfectly. That's why I haven't posted any pictures of myself.

    One can understand hyperbole and also understand the underlying point. It's the latter that I was getting at.

    The silence is deafening. I have checked this thread 500x since my last post. Whatever the verdict, SB, my love for you abides.
