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.

    You can like them as much as you want, they still look just like ping pong tables.

    I don't even like them. I'm just reacting to your comment.

    if you add red pastic cups, it'll probably look like a beer pong table.

    if you add chairs, it'll probably look like a dining table.

    if you add foam swords, it'll probably look like a larping table.

    Whatever sort of table it looks like, it's an ugly one.

    Table looks like something Patrick Bateman would own, and use to dismember prostitutes on.

    Plant recommendations; any of these will grow to 6' in a large enough pot, can survive indoors with crappy light, and are easy to buy just about anywhere:

    Dracena Marginata (dragon tree)

    Ficus Benjamina (weeping fig)

    Chamaedorea elegans (parlor palm)

    Beaucarnea recurvata (ponytail palm)

    Cyathea australis (Australian tree fern) while beautiful unfortunately requires high humidity. My bathroom is a bit too small for one unfortunately :(

    There are varieties of citrus, olives, bananas and dates that can be grown indoors. It can be tough to get them to fruit, though!

    Finally, a voice of reason. Scarpa's work is awesome.

    That was my understanding for fruit trees, they really should be put outside in the late spring and kept there until fall in order to keep them healthy.

    Well most can't set fruit without pollinators, so even if you can keep them healthy it's unlikely you'll get any fruit. Unless you want to take on the role using a q-tip!

    I think some citruses can self-fertilize, those are a good choice if you want fruit.

    Sure, FG, but it's unseemly to discuss the technical details.

    It's good to see signs of life in here....I think.

    Kaplan, can your potential trees go outdoors in the spring-late fall or is that defeating the purpose?
