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.

    It has to be about 95ยบ for me to wear shorts in a non-athletic, non-beach context.

    What the shit kind of question is that?

    And in answer to your second, I say yes. If you are wearing pants, wear loafers. Jeans? Something like Adidas sambas or a chukka.

    But it's casual, so it doesn't really matter

    Swimmers do it for the reduced drag.

    Sheeeeeit. If my legs were any sexier, I'd need a permit to expose them.

    Shaving ones legs could also increase the drag.

    I recall reading some twenty-plus years ago that the only real benefit of shaved legs for cyclists was less painful removal of bandages for the inevitable road rash and less pulling on the skin when getting post-ride massages.
