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.

    Bohemia is not a place - it's a state of mind. A commitment to live with your own sense of values, your own freedom and independence. This video gives an insight into the values of the Bloomsbury Group (Vanessa Bell, Virginia Woolf, Maynard Keynes, EM Forster, Duncan Grant to name but a few) some of whom lived at Charleston.

    They lived and breathed art - whether that be through the medium of painting, sculpting, writing - and they challenged societal norms and the philosophy of materialism. Charleston a simple rented farmhouse near Firle, East Sussex, UK, provided a place to create these various forms of art and live with a freedom not possible in the City. It is impossible to capture the old world creative atmosphere of being at Charleston but this video gives some of the feeling of the raw creativity that engulfs you as you enter and walk around.
