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,

    Bonus points for guessing how many workers we singlehandedly keep employed.

    I have singlehandedly put $400+ into USPS' coffers in 2009 alone. I am but one man among many.

    This sounds like one of those hypothetical questions given in a job interview for a management consulting or software firm like "how many books would you have to stack to reach the moon?"

    If there is z SF users who on average purchase x amount of clothing per year. c% of them make their purchasing decisions based on what people say on SF and from a company using USPS. If the average shipping cost is v% of the sale then (z*x)*c%*v% = amount USPS makes this amount z = 47,750 x = $3,000 c = 4% v = 10% $573,000 ------------- www.jamesvii.com

    Uh, USPS operated at a net loss of $2.8 billion last year.

    But yes, we do send a lot of mail.
