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.

    Cheers,

    Okay, it looks like my last photo disappeared. Â For those who remember, it was a photo of a buddy and I at a pool hall looking either like 1) We were about to inflict damage or 2) serious damage had been inflicted on us. Â Here is a happier picture of my fiancee and I on a lazy Sunday morning, at her folks house. Â The angle is sort of wierd (damn digital cameras). Â She is wearing a vintage silk shirt, and I'm wearing a Jil Sander shirt jacket. Â The leather bracelet thing you see (I've broken in by mistake since) I picked up from some London based designer. Â I'd like to see a picture of ernest, face and all. Â C'mon buddy. Â Cowboy up and all that. [​IMG]

    Nah, I used to have that exact suit I think. The lapel shape and buttonholes are very distinctive. And the color of the buttons is another clue.

    Nice picture LA Guy, congrats.

    BTW, anyone (computer geeks more likely) notice anything interesting about this thread? A cookie to the first to spot it...

    My idea is that you don't need to wear a lab coat unless you're likely to get body fluids on your clothes. What sort of medicine do you practice?

    (Tom @ 25 Oct. 2004, 6:29) I may have good posture, but I need to lose one of my chins. [​IMG] Okay, I know I look dorky , but i need to figure out a better doc coat. These polyester things are horrible. Any ideas?

    He he - I see it. We have maxed out the views counter. It is only 16 bits long so the range of it is -32.768 to +32.768.

    What type of cookie is it ?

    An Internet cookie, of course... good job. Strange how I can have over a million posts but the thread view counter is only 16 bit.

    Yes - they were stingy with the memory but I suppose the programmers reasoned that we could have zillions of topics with their associated counters but much fewer users. So splurging on a 32 bit counter for every user is not so expensive if the forum admin does 'garbage collection' once in a while but giving every topic the extra two bytes can cost much more. Still, with a million topics it will cost two million bytes or 2Mbytes, give or take. Peanuts . What they didn't factor in, was the interest of the world in how we are dressed [​IMG] B

    No kidding; neither did I. It's lucky the database was able to be converted to SQL a while back (though not without some wrestling) because the original one was definitely not meant to scale to this level. It certainly would not have survived the NYT article. In fact, I may be upgrading the forum again soon, to the newest version of ikonboard. Perhaps a higher post read count is included in the new features...

    The man has an insatiable sweet tooth. There are legions of stories throughout Indiana about his days on the recruiting trail, when he would sit in a farmhouse and rave over recruit's mamma's apple pie/homemade icecream, etc.
