    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.

    @Claghorn , this is a very perceptive comment, which I hope @eviltimeban takes seriously. I've noticed this too (and mentioned it before). I think it backs up what you said (at least I think it was you) about it being easier in some ways to wear a suit well, because you can get away with not having to think about the coherence issue between top and bottom. But it seems clear to me that coherence is an issue in a lot of your fits, eviltimeban - it's quite often, nicely-fitting business suit with a seemingly randomly-chosen tie. It's not that this tie is a bad tie (unlike a few others!) - it's fine - but the tie does not work with the suit, the reason being the informal, almost summery, colour and the slubbiness, when the suit calls for something smoother, neater and less casual. Or alternatively, as Claghorn suggests, a more casual SC-based outfit to go with the tie.

    @ridethecliche , I was almost losing all hope of ever saying this to you but, looking good! That is so much better in terms of getting some basics right. Some people will object to blue trousers, but I'm not one of them. You might also have gone for a more casual tie, but again, that's not a deal-breaker here. This is something to build on.

    @mimo
    Have you ever tried or considered trimming your lower jaw beard closer to the jaw line? Believe it could nicely counter your fuller cheeks (no offense!) and look younger, iykwim.

    I don't like that, makes the neck look fat(ter!). Anyway, I'm 42 next month, and my beloved is 24 the following month. I guess I'm young enough. [​IMG]

    No offence taken. :)

    Mimo you know you are violating the well-established half your age + seven years rule, right? :sly:

    well, he's gonna hit that ratio in 8 years, give or take. ;D

    Lol:
    "Christine is 25, Donald is 43. Christine thinks she might be too young for Donald, so she reverses the half-your-age-plus-seven rule (36). This is an unacceptable relationship."

    Thanks for the comments and thumb-love.

    Pingson, I was kind of regretting saying that as soon as I hit it...too much sharing? Anyway, she's remarkable. :)

    DeSense, that made me chuckle: I was working out exactly that arithmetic when I read Professor P's reply, and with the same mental image of a school maths exam!

    Nah, I'm just ribbing you, I am in fact in a rather similar situation - I'm (soon) 45 and my wife is 31 (but note that I pass the rule with a whole year to spare ;) )

    You look like the spitting image of an ex-colleague of mine a few years back when he was ~42.
    As for neck look fat(ter), have you asked for second opinions? The beloved one? Because I wouldn't be so sure about that.
    (working on "a" developing double chin is of course another trinket altogether.)

    Yeah but Noodles is only 25 or something. Not that I'm judging you.

    I'm ashamed to admit I had to do that manually. Still working on the solution, somewhat 24+x = (42+x):2 +7 ... [​IMG]

    PS: Got it: above [-24: x = (42+x):2 -17 = x/2 +4 [x2, -x : x = 8)

    That's great. SF quiz: "How many years before mimo's relationship becomes respectable?"

    People are getting to work in the morning and finding even more "WTF?!" than usual....sorry for starting this!

    Here's another one: if she was exactly half my age when we met, how much of a danger am I to children long have we been together?

    Soon I will go to speak to her father. He has more than one firearm and his own law firm. Keep the pictures for posterity, chaps...
