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.

    For my first post I would like to express thanks to all those who have taken the time to post information on this forum. I spent a little bit of time on Ask Andy Forum, but got a little frustrated at the very slow load time. I'm especially interested in the topics that deal with shoes. Just curious about something. Has anyone visited the Cobbler's Website (Japan) at http://members.jcom.home.ne.jp/0376732901/? I have never seen someone with such a collection of high-end shoes. He posts new shoes periodically, many of which are bespoke. I contacted Jun regarding the website a number of months ago about his collection and although I don't recall the exact number, he indicated something in the range of over 200 bespoke shoes from the likes of Cleverly, Lobb, etc. Is anyone aware of other websites that have a sizable collection of shoes with photos? I'm attempting to live vicariously through others.

    I bet the guy is the life of the party. The scary thing are the framed portraits of the shoes. Really, at that point you have to start wondering.

    Japanese tend to uh, obsess over their obsessions. I know a guy who has over 300 recordings of the Liszt B minor sonata. Apparently too much is not enough. [​IMG]

    I like http://www.zappos.com They have a good assortment of ready-to-wear shoes, including Allen Edmonds. Too bad they don't ship to international addresses :-(. bern

    Great site. I wish I could read Japanese. I've learned a lot from it still.
