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,

    OK, just a couple more of my favorites from my first trip to Switzerland and Italy... This was the view from my hotel in Zurich. Â It was a little hazy, but EXACTLY what I expected to see... [​IMG] and this one in Rome is one of my favorites from that trip. By chance, my mom and I happened upon the Trevi Fountain the day that Italy was bidding farewell to the Lira. Â So they made a big ceremony out of it by bringing in the military band to play a "Farewell to the Lira" tribute. Â Quite momentous, actually. Â But I especially like this photo because the silhouetted musicians in the foreground remind me of Mystery Science Theater 3000. [​IMG] I'll get around to Ireland later.

    [​IMG] Stamford, Lincolnshire - about 3 miles from where I live. [​IMG] Hadrian's Wall, just above Housesteads Fort, Northumberland. The photo was taken in March this year, and shows that the weather in northern England isn't always bad. [​IMG] Finally, where I've been for the last couple of months - Shaibah, Iraq.

    no offense, but that just looks like the ass end of nowhere. do they actually let you post pictures of where you are? i imagine there must be limitations.

    It is the ass end of nowhere. The photo was taken from a tower, and the view is much the same whichever direction you look.

    Thank you, but I am aware of OPSEC and PERSEC, and this post breaches neither. The Iraqis already know it's there.

    Is this where they shot the boat docks for Purple Noon? It looks like it.
