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.

    Much appreciate your compliments. Guess I will stick with the double loop 4IH knot. Thanks again.

    A word of advice, given that you work in a conservative office: despite the popularity of that variant of the double 4IH on SF, if I had seen it IRL before joining SF, I would have assumed the wearer didn't know how to tie a tie. I wouldn't have said anything, but that is what I would have thought.

    (Actually, I still don't like it, but accept that it's personal preference, and if the rest of a look is great, so what...)

    But for most non-SF people, seeing the second loop underneath the first is weird. If you want to tie a double 4IH, and work in a conservative place, pull the tie through between the loops (not below both of them) so it looks like a normal 4IH, albeit just a bit thicker.

    Noodles, don't you think it's about time you changed your actual user name to Noodles?

    Also, I agree with HF. I like the DFIH for a knit tie, but generally I think the half windsor is smarter for a thinner tie - or even a full windsor for that matter. There, I said it. As for that tie in particular, I note that our resident master tie maker Sr Gianni Cerutti said it's lovely. Ergo you should always listen to me.

    The colours look good and it looks like it will tie a good knot.

    I HATE INTERNS!!!!!!! So we have donuts for all 300 employees in the building when we give out paycheck STUBS but today when I arrived, I didn't find a SINGLE donut! The new batch of interns that started last week came and ate all the full time employees' donuts! How am I gonna keep up with John Goodman if I don't get my donuts!!![​IMG]

    Sorry for the morning rant. We now return to our usual program.

    And Uncle Mimo, changing my name to Noodles may be just wong...racially...being that I am Oriental. [​IMG]

    ¡Eso es, Noodels! [​IMG]You won't regret getting that tie. You can't complain about the knot it makes.

    Noodles, it is for that reason that you should "reclaim" this particular "N Word". It's better than calling you Smelly Cabbage anyway, which was my second choice. :)
