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.

    Most of us here invent worlds we did not belong to, which may have ended before we were born and which never may have existed... few of us are able to license our dreams for billions of dollars and offshore them to China.

    ^ There is much awesome in this...

    ...and this:

    New Aldens for $189, don;t forget your Bing.

    I don't see what's so controversial about an animal made out of leather.

    Unless it is life-size and/or anatomically correct...

    Careful with the shipping charge - $59.99!

    You can report people for that.

    Yesterday I asked the seller to confirm that the shoes are C (and not D) width. He/she promptly replied - they are C width so they are too narrow for me. But this morning I noticed the high shipping charge. So, wanting to stir the pot a little, I sent a message to the seller stating that the shipping charge seemed high and asking the seller to confirm that it is correct. I'll post the seller's response when I receive it.

    The funny part is that the shipping was only $5.99 when I posted about it. I wonder if he would have honored it! [​IMG]

    These would be sweet with a pair of tortiose shell Ray Bans. [​IMG]

    Lobb Paris - 7.5 William BIN $255. Have seen better days, but look to have lots of life... They are my size, but unfortunately, I already have this exact shoe...

    Those are from the days when they were made by C&J.

    Thanks for the edification - I noticed the label was different, but didn't know they were made by C&J. Assume the quality has gone up since Lobb took them in-house? How would you describe the quality differential?

    I've never actually handled a C&J-era Lobb. I just know the C&J writing. I assume they are good quality. I don't know how it compares to the current stuff.

    These Hanover saddles in 9.5D are listed as used, but if they've been worn, it hasn't been much. Seller says they're shell, and the opening bid is only $19.38. Might get a bargain on a nice pair of "used" shoes.
