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.

    I've gotten Paul Simon, on a number of occasions. I see no resemblance. When I had an abundant head of hair, I used to be compared to George Segal. Again, I see no resemblance.

    My sister used to look very much like Cher, before Cher destroyed herself, under the knife.

    I'd obviously prefer chain mail to very expensive limited edition japanese repro garments, but when I tried it out no one would sit next to me on the bus.

    It might have had something to do with the sword.

    check this out, you upload a picture of yourself (straight on head shot, like your license) and this face recognition software tells you the degree of resemblance between you and some celebrity:

    There's a Stevie Wonder impersonator around here that always posts flyers on telephone poles and such. If he's cheap, I'd consider renting him for a night out. I could be his wingman.

    A couple of people have told me I look like Tom Brady (the Patriots QB).

    My grandfather looks like George C. Scott. He was mistaken for Scott in the past on numerous occasions.

    Hmm. I tried that software. It said Chuck resembled Kofi Annan AND Maria Sharapova, so I don't pay it too much credence! It said I looked most like Charlize Theron (97%) and Adriana Karembeu (96%)!! Now wouldn't that have made life easier were it true!!!

    But in real life, I've most often been told Stockard Channing (when my cheeks are chubby) and Lynda Carter. I don't really see it. But I'll take it as a compliment anyway, depite the fact that they're 13 & 20 years my senior!

    I've gotten Tiki Barber quite a bit, but I don't think so.

    Someone told me once that I look like Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto.

    Thats when I cut off their head with my sword and made six dishes (including ice cream) with their innards.

    Jill, you look like Bird York in that new profile pic.

    Some of the more notable celebrities I've been compared to are Takeshi Kaneshiro, Lee Hom Wang, Sean Penn, Jet Li. Myheritage thought I looked like Bruce Willis, Aung San Suu Kyi, and Zhang Ziyi. Then a picture with a different facial expression got totally different results.

    Thank you!! Must be the angle, though, because I would never be that skinny in this lifetime.

    Okay, I bit on the MyHeritage thing...pretty neat. Here FWIW, is my list: Michael Keaton (53%) Sean Connery (53%) Patricia Velasques (?!?) (53%) Jimmy Carter (53%) Kyra Sedgwick (52%) Carl Sagan (billions and billions of %) [​IMG] Diane Keaton (wtf!?!) 50% Mikis Theodorakis (48%) (For your information, I am none of these people. Although I share a name with two cultural "icons", both of film fame.) Edit: I ran a 10-year-old photo through the thing and came up with a startlingly different set of results: Shahrukh Khan (70%) Keira Knightley (62%) Liv Tyler (61%) Grace Kelly (61%) Fernando Redondo (60%) Jim Henson (59%) Kristanna Loken (58%) Jon Stewart (54%) Carson Daly (54%) (Another fwiw: I am consistently mistaken for a former governor of a Great Plains state. He even called me "him" once when we met.)
