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,

    strange you should ask that - I am a big fan of german astetics, pre 1933 or so. I love herman hesse and thomas mann, and german expressionism, as well as a lot of small artifacts of the period.

    I am not familiar with boll, have to luck him up.

    Thomas Mann is wonderful; Hesse I loved as a high-schooler, but now I just find pretentious. Rilke and Remarque are VERY high on my list as well.

    I'm re-reading "Das Brot der Fruehen Jahre". Before that, I was reading "Das blaue Kleid", by Dorris Doerrie. I don't know the titles in English.
