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,

    Ernest, by the way, do you know where I could find the Weston 180 loafer on sale ? Is there a Weston outlet, in Troyes maybe ?

    Yes I think there is a W outlet in Troyes but I have never been in Troyes so I can not say if you have chance to find something.

    Which size/color do you need? I could phone them for you if you want to.

    Sorry ernest, I agree with Carlo here. Not a classy move. At very least you should be splitting your "winnings" with her.

    Tell her she has managed to land a real catch. ...Ok, I was about to say I could see you keeping the discount on the jacket... then you turned around and said you were going to charge her 250 for the thing. Â LOL. Let's hope she doesn't read the forum ...she may go shopping for a new boyfriend

    I lend her 1 000 euros without any intrest for shopping, this is already enough classy

    tis a rare gentleman indeed who chooses not to charge interest to that one special girl....

    BTW - how much were your travel costs to go all the way back there to return your suit...erodes your "winnings" I would suspect

    .....Ernest, though I personally do not care for the suit, it is a very nice suit, just alter something so it fits just a little better...it looks nice on you.

    Something tells me he has a carte orange that would work for the first few zones. If he risks it again for the last zone, he will have paid nothing. If he gets caught, being a gentleman, he'll certainly die of shame and that will be the end of Ernest on the SF.

    See, because of them you can have the freedom to make such off the cuff statements. Though war is not something wonderful, it serves it's own precarious reasoning in history and at times definitely serves itself as a triumph to the betterment of mankind, and therefore quite often represents pride for the down trodden. Take the Jews in WW II, do you think pride did not serve up to the men who freed the enslaved prisoners of the Nazi regime, if you do not think there was a time to be proud of war, then my friend you do not get it at all. However, I do not want to debate war and it's intricacies, I prefer to just make a conscience view about a mans suit.

    While seizing on the obvious, you fail to understand my more subtle point: the good outcomes of war are surely something for which one may feel pride, but the killing should not be.

    Ernest, ernest, ernest. You are supposed to *give* her gifts, especially if you coerced her into going shopping with you in the first place. Lending her the money is reasonable enough if you can't afford/prefer-to-not get her all the stuff she wants; but I don't see any self-respecting guy making interest off his girlfriend. That would take a real piece of work.

    Word. Every self-respecting guy I know charges two points on loans to their GFs.

    The nicer ones accept repayment in kind.
