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,

    The person that did the shine works for a company called A shine & co. They have shops in San Francisco, DC and as far as I know one stand at JFK in New York.

    That is right. They are in the Jet Blue terminal at JFK (may be opening another there as well), but that isn't exactly local to us city dwellers.

    The shiners that work a BNelson's are actually quite good. I had a couple of hours on a Saturday when I was last in New York and the lady there spent almost half an hour mirror shining my zug grain Trickers to perfection. I was shocked by how amazing the shine was on the impossible-to-shine country leather.

    That's good to know. Maybe I will check them out.
