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.

    These Fratelli Rossetti have been with me for a long time, and I have only recently started giving them the care they need:

    Can they be saved?
    Do they still look ok?

    I wonder if a new sole is possible; any advice?

    thx

    I guess by that you think they look ok :)

    The main problem is the sole.

    well ok. a cobbler can glue a thin rubber sole onto it. certainly, it will feel a bit different from the get go but you get used to it. talk to him and he should consult you on this issue.

    imo, it's not urgent but will come up in the future.

    Aside from the fact that those are the ugliest shoes I have ever seen in my life, I don't see anything beyond repair about them. That said, you may want to stop investing more money in those, and consider buying a proper pair of welted leather shoes that don't so much resemble an alien stingray's penis.

    Cheers,

    Generally that brand Fratelli Rossetti is Goodyear welted.

    Wish that were true, but it isn't.
