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 overheard someone on the NYC subway last weekend say to his friend something along the lines of "Why would you buy those when you can buy Converse for much less? They're the same thing", in reference to the Common Projects Achilles low's I was wearing. I didn't say anything, because I don't associate with poor people. And before anyone mentions the irony of me taking the subway, I put $5000 down on my metrocard.

    ^^^Snob! I love it!

    This thread = fail. This has been done already only better

    Are you vested in the 'dirty canvas' thread? Protecting an investment? What was their IPO, btw? In jest of course.

    Anyway...

    Thank you, that made me laugh out loud. You should give some respect though. After all, they recognised your CPs.

    For weight training yes... for running, not so much.

    I wear them while jogging too, wouldn't have it any other way. I'll understand people if they need running shoes though.

    Black leather mono hi tops, white leather mono lows. They'll serve me until i'm rich enough for CP. Even then, the leather on these is actually quite nice.

    I'm thinking of getting some red converse oxes. Or purple, if I can find them.
