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,

    This. I'm pretty good when my bank account has little more than is needed to make the rent... and not just for clothes... in this situation I'm pretty good about limiting eating out / groceries and all other spending as well. otherwise... I'm not so great....

    +1

    Also depends on what it is. I have a few items that would be definite purchases if I came across them but otherwise, I can generally let things slide.

    Depends on how much money is in my paypal account. Thankfully, I sell other stuff each month and don't dip into my paycheck. The trick is transferring $ from paypal to my checking before I spend it.

    Also, depends on what it is. I've gotten pretty good about saving up for grail items.

    Well, I just resisted the urge to pull the trigger on a pair of Tricker's at Sierra Trading Post, so...maybe better than I thought? They look fantastic, but I can't really justify them and they wouldn't fill a hole in my wardrobe.

    The problem is the smaller, dumber purchases, which are easier to justify, harder to resist, but generally aren't as satisfying overall as picking up a grail-level item, even if the latter is at a hard-to-swallow price point.
