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.

    Many underestimate the dexterity and fingertip motor control needed to grasp an overhead strap in the subway.

    (On second thought, that's probably not it.)

    Yes: he would be diabolical as a Bond villain, although most of the movie might be Bond and he arguing.

    MFF: Who is your tailor?

    Bond: Villain that you are, you wouldn't know that a gentleman does not discuss his women, or his tailor.

    MFF: Your lapels are too narrow. Have you considered a lower gorge?

    Bond: Wut?

    MFF: Guards! Fetch my red felt pen! I apologize, where are my manners? Would you like a bagel while we wait? I have them submarined in to my undersea lair fresh from Zabar's.

    Bond: Are you wearing fingerless gloves?

    MFF: Of course! Full fingered gloves within the protected environment of an undersea lair would be preposterous! Ah...here is the pen...let us begin...

    I wear fingerless gloves at home in winter because I keep my thermostat so low. It's an eye-tie version of yankee thrift.

    I approve this. It also enables mixing cocktails with fewer ice cubes, important in cities in which they ration tap water for ideological reasons, like San Francisco.

    Since we're now on this tangent, it reminds me of one particular nursing home, which I visited quite a few years ago, and they used to keep all the residents' spirits safely under lock & key in the drug dispensing area to ensure no-one got completely plastered (the good old days...). Every time a resident got a drink, the new level would be marked on the bottle to keep track of consumption. Needless to say, one enterprising member of staff figured out how to ensure the level remained the same even as the content of alcohol in the bottle diminished over time. I believe they were eventually caught and disciplined, after someone noticed they were visibly under the influence.

    Seemed like it Spoo.... Got the e-mail notification yesterday and received today.. I did pick the express courier option though... an extra GBP8.00 which in my view was worth it due to the long transit times using normal mail and the longer it's in transit the higher the chance of a shipment going missing. The risks are probably remote, but nevertheless, it allows me to sleep a lil better :)

    I ordered on Monday and hadn't heard anything yet so I sent an inquiry this morning. They said it has already shipped but that they were behind in sending out the notifications.
