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 love San Francisco, but I understand frustration with the "you gotta be fucking kidding me" aspect of it. There's a reason the penny farthing fell into disuse. This town is filled with what my friend used to call Urban Attention Seekers.

    I agree, it was a nice day. We walked over to the Goldworthy spire and I actually said to the leftette, "you know, this may be the nicest day I've spent in SanFo." Then the velocipedist rolled by.

    You just can't write this shit.

    Is it bad that I want to toss a stick between his spokes?

    So Ike's Place was cool sans all the hipster and naked men walking around.

    I ended up a bit lost on foot while looking for Delores Park and ended up taking a tour of the Castro district by myself. I literally walked from Ike's Place back to Market Street, down Market Street all the way to Castro District, then circled back all the way to 18th Street after asking a cop until I ran into the park across from Mission High School.

    That one place "Look Here" or w/e was kind of cool with the balcony and I can hear the wave of people shouting "LOOK AT THE NAKED GUY" who was standing right next to me while waiting for the stop light.

    And for some reason it was super hot today compared to the last time I visited and I ended up way overdressed. Bummer.

    My wife was reading this threak and said that Left gets a reprieve somewhat because Burning Man is going on right now. Not all the freaks, mind you, but a certain genre of ones whose absence might be of a small relief.

    My friend saw one of those guys and said "that guy is really annoying." Then my friend's brother looked really upset, and said "J..., stop giving him attention, that's what he wants!"

    Some dude from my group who lives in SF just accepted a job here at the mothership. I'm like, WTF? He's out there all alone, hardly any supervision, can do whatever he wants, living in paradise, and he comes back to this s-hole voluntarily to be bossed around amidst all that "new york magic"?

    Idiot.

    Infested BART: Inspection Reports Reveal Serious Pest Problems



    A A AComments (1)
    By Beth Winegarner Wednesday, Sep 12 2012

    Trying to keep BART stations clean is akin to bailing out the Titanic with a shot glass.

    For starters, you've got folks using elevators and escalators as their own personal toilets. Then there are the rats and the pigeons, skittering and swooping and excreting willy-nilly. It's enough to drive a station agent bonkers, as we discovered recently when we examined a stack of station inspection reports.

    Anybody know of any of the underground dinner parties SF has? Bourdain and Zimmern had shows on them.
