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,

    @Claghorn I had a feeling I'd be scolded. Trying to channel Ginsberg before he cuts off his own nipple.

    Don't take mirror selfies. There are billions of people on Earth. Just ask one of them to take your picture. This (nearly always) works for me, even if they don't speak the same language that I do. If they have a camera, you should also offer to take their picture.

    @Roycru Thanks, sound advice.

    @ Caustic Man Also, thanks. I tried a few indoor shots but they were always too dark. May have to wait for warmer weather and more sun!

    Cloudy days are the best. The light diffuses nicely and you can adjust the exposure if there really isn't enough light. Sunny days can make your photo look harsh and muddled. Of course, good photographers know how to get around that.

    @Forper a few semi-brief thoughts:

    1. Nobody ever said your clothes looked of a quality of an entry-level scrub. I did say that the way they fit you made you appear as such. In any event, $3300 for the final outcome is far, far too much, and would still be too much if the belt was actually $200. Quality will last a good long while (and that is a good mindset to have), but quality/high price tags along do not make something look good.

    2. You're 100% correct regarding the shirt you mentioned. Far too tight, and far too short. It was a poorly executed foray into MTM shirting, and, as such, was taken to the local Goodwill months ago. Thankfully not terribly expensive (done intentionally), as it was a sunken cost almost from the off. I suppose I must commend your efforts to get back at me for daring to question your unique style lol.

    3. I ask this in all sincerity: what is your hope/intention in posting in the thread? I myself utilize it for inspiration and advice for improvements. You've made quite clear that is not your intention.

    In any event, there's no way to assess your outfit without saying it looks frumpy at best, and terrible at worst. I dig that you like being comfortable, but wearing a bed sheet masquerading as a shirt is not the optimal path to comfort. If you choose to spend a decent chunk of change on your clothes, why not spend a nominal fee to achieve a decent fit?

    @gnatty8 not pretty tight...intensely tight. Like take shallow breaths to avoid popping buttons tight lol. It was the first (and last) time I'll be using body measurements for a shirt. To compound the foolishness of that plan, I listed measurements as smaller than they actually are in an attempt to achieve a slim fit. Poorly conceived all the way around lol.

    Yeah that's WAY better than yours.

    Cleav I always love it when that gunclub makes an appearance.

    Mmmm. I hope so too.

    Yesterday I wore pretty much what Murl wore today, only different. I also only have a shot of the top block but trust me, the rest of it was perfect in every way imaginable.

    Square is cotton with a cool green flower embroidered on it; you can't tell.

    @ericgereghty That's a bit more than brief for me and probably far beyond the time you should have spent… although I admire your willingness to provide straight forward advice (despite the fact I think he's fucking with us.)

    @Forper is the new @DP92 … now slightly less douchey.


    Mofo you looking too cool sometimes! That's nice.
