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,

    Hi,

    Just a question: How does one tell, if not told beforehand, that an article of clothing is made of silk? What can we see or feel in clothing made of silk?
    By the way, when they say 'smooth as silk', how true is it?

    Thanks.
    WJTW

    Silk is so versatile, I don't believe one can answer your question satisfactorily. I have many items made of silk in my wardrobe, and not one feels/looks like any of the others. I suggest you educate yourself by going to a place like Saks or Nordstrom and ask to see garments made of silk so you can better gauge for yourself.
