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,

    Foxx, I quite like them. They are elegant, versatile and timeless. For new links, especially from PS, the price isn't bad, either.

    Solfnod, the t-bar links are very common these days, but why only have one side of the cufflink when you have two sides of a cuff? Like many others in these parts, I think the t-bar link simply seems inelegant. The price seems the same as the others that Foxx links, too.

    Send me your address in a PM, and I will give you a pair of c. 1920 ones, gratis. Why buy new (for $79.50) when there are gorgeous antique pairs out there for $30? For $79.50, you can buy a vintage 10k pair, $100 or so for 14k.

    (The_Foxx @ June 09 2005,22:34) not only are these double sided, as flusser recommends, they are very well priced (and engravable, if you choose). Â I have a pair like this from Asprey in silver (can't seem to pull off gold, myself). Â http://www.paulstuart.com/item_template.cfm?ItemId=1251

    Or an 18k pair that is 100+ years old for $49, like I did [​IMG]

    If you're giving them away I know this guy named gorgekko who loves cufflinks :) It was his birthday on Wednesday and I didn't get him anything.
