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.

I think I hate San Francisco.

    Thanks for that.

    One of the things I love about LA is that you can get a really cool two bedroom house with just the right amount of space for a couple.

    I like LA. If I could get a guarantee that that my work would be near my home, I would even consider living there. But I can't get that guarantee, and the commute prospects there are terrifying.

    herb caen was the Grand Inquisitor when it came to "frisco." Once he died, it's possible the masses began to lose their fear.

    BTW, WRT the map of LA, if you ever want to see the trashiest white trash in the USA, pay a visit to Sunland.

    LA is a state of mind. It takes in everything from Disneyland to Malibu which, come to think of it, maybe aren't that far apart after all.

    And LA has much better songs.

    Sushi Sam in San Mateo? I ate a lot of sushi while I was in Southern California. Sushi Sam finally lived up to my expectations but note it is also pricey. The fatty tuna was delicious! Friend who lives in south SF brought me.

    Running the trap house.
    Cloth seats.
    No way to know what the stop is until it is verbally announced.
    No exterior visual of what the train was.

    Just really subpar.

    Perhaps the bus will be better, I've seen some good videos.

    Yeah, pretty much. You'll fit right in here. Well, except for your optimism about the bus. It makes BART seem like first-class transportation.

    BART could be a little more user friendly. Only way to tell which train you are boarding is to look at the screen. On departing, which station you are at is not clearly visible. After you ride a couple times it becomes second nature, but the first few rides could be improved. BART has already begun switching some seats over to plastic covers.

    MUNI sucks.

    I've learned to distinguish my BART station from the one prior by the color of the wall tiles, otherwise they are nearly indistinguishable, and the signage sucks donkey balls

    They finally added some lights above the signs in some stations so that they're at least visible through the gloom of the dirty, tinted windows.

    In other news, I took my 22-y.o. cousin around the city today while he was here on a 12-hour layover on his way to NZ. Beautiful and sunny on the Embarcadero, and he quite enjoyed himself.

    I really hope this turns out to be true so that I can lord it over all my fawningly tolerant Bay Area people.

    I don't think any of the fawningly tolerant Bay Area people would suggest there aren't racist fucks in the Bay Area. In fact, they'd probably argue that there are more than you'd say there are.

    If you're looking for Giants-oriented irony, you need to find some SF fans beating up a Dodger fan in the parking lot after a game. Unlikely to happen, though, since most Giants fans seem to leave before the game is over...

    giants and dodger fans have switched places almost perfectly since the 80s. In the Steve Garvey era, the dodgers won, the fans left early and they were all sissy yuppies. Whereas at candlestick the fans (all 2,000 of them) were all white trash with handlebar staches, stayed til the end of every game even though the giants always lost, in order to drink more beer and get in more fights.
