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,

    Put things that you think fit here.

    Sort of, the "best part of living where I live," thread.

    For me, it's CALIFORNIA BURRITOS.

    In N' Out is a close second, but there's nothing specifically San Diegan about In N' Out. It's just a west-coast thing (and part of Nevada and Utah).

    We have Trader Joe's here on the East coast. Hell, dusty has one in Ohio.

    I can't wait to get out of here and go home, though.

    Some time in the last ten years. When I moved out here seven years ago, they had one or two stores, I think, in Connecticut. They've since opened up several more. Hell, I think they're opening one up in Union Square. The stores outside of California have a really different feel, though, or at least they did when I moved. I don't know what the California stores are like, but if they're anything like I remember, it's still different. Not quite as charming, not quite as friendly, etc.

    I like Japanese and Chinese girls that speak English with Australian accents. I don't know any, but I've seen a few on TV and in the movies. I can't believe I live without that.

    Trader Joes is not for shit compared to Central Market, which is only in Texas.

    Central Texas BBQ. The one true 'cue. North Carolina and Kansas City, please don't bother.

    That may be, but who the fuck wants to live in Texas?

    Clearly, you have no Carlo Franco order pending.

    I express no opinion on Texas, but only proffer this quote from the always grouchy Omar Sharif: "I don't want to be in Texas. It still smells of ketchup and Coke."
