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.

    Hmmm... I will try my hand here (although I do think it was a "bit" esoteric, and will be a little frightened at myself if I get it right, [​IMG] ) Ernest wants to know about the Burberry Macintoch (raincoat) why its so expensive and if it's (highway) Robbery. In the market for a raincoat myself I tend to think that 1K for a Burberry raincoat is VERY steep.

    I thought he was talking about going to a store and stealing the lining out of one.

    I wanted, no LUSTED after a Burberry for a decade. The closest I ever came to buying one was in a Burberry outlet store in Palm Springs a couple years ago. But it was still $600 or $700.

    This autumn I found one on eBay; seller said it was a gift from his mother, and was brand new.

    I bit. Paid $300. It came on the Burberry hanger, in a Burberry bag, and is perfect.

    It's really cold here in the winter (-25 some mornings) and the coat with wool liner and collar has been fine. It stops the wind and repels snow quite well. I wear it 2 or 3 times a week when I'm not wearing a black cashmere overcoat.

    To pay $1000 seems crazy; at $300, I'm very happy.

    Is Burberry robbery ? I think it is.

    In their products, only the macs worth their price
