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.

    Noodles, I would have taken that deposit and withdrew it in cash immediately, then wait it out. You suck at life.

    Stitchie you crazy.
    The accountant in me said, they HAVE TO reconcile all accounts and they WILL find the missing deposit.
    Anyways, the $65k belonged to the customer who came in after me. LOL

    What's wrong with them? Esp the second pair. That was kind of nice.

    Are you just using reverse psychology to make me want them now?

    Now you know whom to rob to get your formosa!

    I much prefer derbies because of their casualness. I don't wear suits often. (SCs + trousers instead)

    Do you wear suits every day? If not, you should be wearing derbies

    I rarely wear suits.

    I just don't like how derbys look, esp on my small feet (8E/8.5D).

    These would be perfect for you since you live in Boston and winters are harsh.

    Yeah, I don't mind them on boots, esp chukkas. I'm getting rid of my blutcher boots. Too chunky. Prefer chelseas and slightly less chunky boots.

    Hello Mrs. Noodles. Have you taken over your husband's account?

    Yes, they are all Bigi. The more I look at the striped ties the less crazy I am about them. I do like the the others though.

    Noodles: I haven't had a chance to get the suit to the tailor.

    FlyingMonkey: I thought you promised pictures with a real camera from here on out?

    Plumbing: We're adding a bed/bath to our house right now. The plumbing sub is trying to jack up his fee by calling out things as "extras" separate from what he bid on originally. All of this despite my drawing his attention to all of things specifically on his walk-through pre-bid. I will cut a bitch...

    If and when I re-start taking regular WAYRN pictures, yes I will do. That was just a quick one because of the Fair Isle discussion earlier... and it does its job adequately, doesn't it?

    Basically, this thread has become a hybrid of Ask a Quick Question (Advanced), MC General Chat, and Should I Buy This?

    Ain't no problem with it. The other day I almost came in here to ask for y'all to hunt me down a nice green tie for around $75 (and I refuse to pay more than 100 for a tie. Never have. Never will. Except maybe for a Vanda. Because damn it, those are probably worth it).

    I'm with Noodles on the stripes>dots. But I'm biased of course.

    I can feel your frustration, coming as you do from a small and unimportant country with a bizarre dialect.
