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,

    I spent a few weeks living in Interlaken Switzerland...if you love skiing I highly recommend putting this on your bucket list.

    Chicago is listed on this thread way more than it deserves. This is likely due to there being an abundance of native Chicagoans on the forum--local pride and all that. I sort-of get it. My viewpoint is extremely jaded when it comes to Chicago. That said, I could live there and be happy. But in the fantasy of choosing to set up shop literally anywhere on the globe.... I don't at all understand why people are picking Chicago (other than local pride I guess?).

    I'm actually being headhunted right now for a Chicago job. It's pretty equal to my current job, but higher paying. My reluctance is mainly at moving from Miami to Chicago, I visited there twice and I loved visiting...but didn't feel the "I can move here" vibe. My friends who have moved there like it, but absolutely hate the weather

    Those rich oil sheik's sure made the coolest looking Sim City ever, but it's still in the Middle East. Visit? Sure. Live? Fuck no.

    I hate to say it, especially I'm a Thai citizen, but it is true.......

    However, there are some nice spots which you can go to and they are NOT too bad, cleanliness wise. I guess it really depends on where you go. This is true to all of the places in the world.

    I've been to places in the US and there were nasty!

    I'm changing my vote to Honolulu. Benefits are mostly obvious, and after doing a little research while on holiday there, much less expensive than I thought. Only drawback is that I would get bored at times so I'd need to have a sizeable airfare budget, learn Japanese and spend lots of time traveling to Asia and SoCal. Air travel is pretty reasonable by my standards in terms of both price and distance.

    The locals, to me, are insufferable hicks.

    Definitely. Couldn't live on an island I don't think.

    Now, the mountains? Could definitely live in the mountains. Not sure what my dream town would be though... I'd say Boulder except the crunchy types would drive me crazy pretty quickly.

    awww...the locals are pretty cool, if a bit unsophisticated. Sorry that your experience was different. They do move as slow as fuck though
