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.

    When I'm watching a game at home, I'm wearing about 7 fewer pieces of clothing.

    NEVER! That place is infested with germs. Gosh, I hope my father inlaw doesn't force me to go to the bathhaus with him.

    I came early to watch the game. The game started just as I stepped through the door. :D

    Long time no post chaps, I haven't had much occasion to wear a jacket and tie recently. Forgive the shoddy photography and somewhat awkward expression, I was in a hurry and dealing with a reluctant photographer. The tie is a bit thinner than I'm used to wearing these days but I really love the plaid, and the trousers are an old charcoal pair in need of a press.

    Are you in Norway perchance? I swear that looks like an entry way of a Telanor Norway office I was in a few years ago.

    Sad indeed. Of course, Alzheimer's is a terrible diagnosis for anyone and everyone, but it seems, to me, all the more cruel for authors. I loved the Discworld books as a teen.

    His tireless work to raise awareness for Alzheimer's disease was well known

    Big loss on a number of levels :(

    I also really liked Good Omens. Discworld followed an interesting path. From the 80s to the mid-90s, it was just sort of silly fantasy with a bit of satire. I felt it became really good when Pratchett shifted his focus more to satire and some metaphysics and less on the fantastic elements of the world. And then in the last couple of novels, the quality of characters and the complexity of the commentary really dropped as a result of Alzheimer's.

    If you've not kept up, the rest of the City Watch novels are worth reading, particularly Jingo, Nightwatch, and the Fifth Element. Perhaps Thud as well. But the disease takes a toll on his writing after that (I believe he was diagnosed while writing Thud)

    I didn't keep up, but he was always an author I looked forward to introducing my kids to when the time comes. I have fleeting recollection of the books now, but I recall always enjoying his characterization of Death. I wonder want I will think of it when I read it again. I have found that my own perspectives on death changed radically after having children.

    Death is great. If you have a Kindle, send me your email and I'll gift you a Pratchett book. Otherwise, send me your address and I'll send you an actual book. The stuff from 1997 on is really excellent (though I don't know when you stopped reading)

    From a picture I took of my briefcase. You can see how well read some of those are.
