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 think I only prefer Burgundy shoes to brown with Navy Suits/Trousers. But I'm a creature of habit. Black/Charcoal = Black Shoe. Brown/Light Grey = Brown Shoe. Mid Grey=whatever. Blue (not navy)= Chili or Brown. I probably should mix it up, gotta find a combo that works though.

    As for formality, well,"Formality" seems to be a tricky word around here. The two criteria that work best for me are "looks good?" and "appropriate for setting?" Generally though, in most "formal" settings, a darker shoe is more appropriate. So maybe if the burgundy is darker than the brown (or vice versa) you could say its more formal?

    Stick to the basics, black and brown, burgundy works too.
