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.

    most government jobs have their own perks, such as early retirement and great health benefits that private companies can't match. for example, cops have the option to retire after 20 years in service while still getting paid 50% of peak salary. imagine all the options one has after the age of say, 40ish? 60k+ of passive income, pensioned as fu*k and an unmatched medical plan while private dudes gets laid off left and right due to market cycles etc...

    pros and cons to either sides of the coin, i would say.

    Meh, the benefits of government work aren't what they used to be.

    With all of Noodles' deletions, readers tomorrow are going to be greatly confused regarding what is going on.

    He deletes, edits, and recreates with a passion. My sympathies to any future historian who may sift through these dusty posts.

    We'll have to fill in the blanks for them: did you hear Noodles got caught sleeping with his boss' wife and the boss confronted him during his performance review? I heard Noodles got demoted to the receptionist job as a result.

    I fear my post might pale in comparison to Noodles' performance review, but scored the Eidos navy blazer from San Fran Bloomies thanks to @TweedyProf Thanks mate!

    To the people that I actually met in person (regardless of how many times), did you think I was a lunatic or something?

    In person, not at all.

    I don't think PR was being all too serious.

    That's enough of the harsh words though and you may want to think about editing that.

    Moderators can see, and restore if needed, any edits made after 10 minutes of the original post. So, the history is preserved, even if only in secret.

    Anyways, I dont know what the hell I missed, but no, Noodles is not a lunatic. A character, with impulsive OCD tendencies and a semi intentional online schtick, sure. But a lunatic, not at all. And in person, as a nice a guy as you could hope to meet.
