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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    The euro has been falling this week. Partially due to the hedge funds getting back into dollars to pay back there loans.

    The pity of it all was I remember how strong the dollar was a year or two before the Euro shift. I think a lot of those people who the media said were paranoid, were actually correct. There seemed to be all these shifts (subtle and less subtle) in pricing when the French went from the Franc to the Euro. Almost brings tears to my eyes to think of that small window before the shift, when the dollar was still strong, and Paris was affordable. (at least for me -- and I spent a good chuck of time there over a years period -- not shopping but eating and drinking and reading and talking).

    I too remeber the good days, the August of the first year of the Euro I was in Paris, and we were trading out at .87 to the Euro, it was good times, but the funny thing was the prices went up and the Franc was still the better trade way when they did both for a short period of time.
