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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    you know when I used to hang out with co-workers? when I was an expat and had no life. when you have a life, you don't need to hang with co-workers.

    Dingdingdingdingding!

    I like my co-workers and I do stuff with them after work on occasion. But mostly I don't because I'd rather hang out with my friends and family.

    Not exactly "corporate," but I've been there. I'm not some reprehensible piece of shit off the clock, but my lack of interest in joining in on the culture noted in that thread gave some people false impressions about me.

    After last night's events (see pissing you off thread...) I am much more certain that I don't want to mix coworkers and friends.

    Its weird when a couple coworkers show up at a party with your friends...its also weird when you go out after work with your coworkers and a couple of your friends show up (especially when you didn't invite them). Monday's gonna be interesting...

    Edit: I should also say that I like being able to be open and frank about jobs with my friends. When my friend wants to talk about quitting the job they hate, or I want to vent about someone at work who is not pulling their weight, its really nice when there is no overlap for the gossip to travel back.

    Read Bowling Alone, an essay on social capital in America. It basically talks about the lack of interaction between people in modern society, and touches on how old mainstays of corporate America such as sports teams, bowling leagues, after work groups and the such have been slowly dying out. It's not the best paper I've read, but interesting and relevant.
