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.

    If you could live anywhere in the world and make a living there then where would you go,or are you perfectly happy where you are?

    I ask as I am planning on finding a way to escape the UK sometime soon with Budapest being my city of choice ( cheap property,stunning architecture,cool people,central to a lot of places in Europe,low crime - awful language however but you can't have it all ) but wondered where you guys would go given the choice...What are the important things to you in a place to live?

    Let's hear your opinions!

    I lack the money or connects for either, and also the language for the former.

    Why not deep under the Greenbrier?

    I think I would be safe up there. No one is going to nuke Santa Cruz. And if they did, I wouldn't want to go on living anyway.

    If it's safety you want, go for rural Montana or the forests of Michigan's UP.

    Maybe Santiago - except for the recurrent natural disasters... love the people and the city is growing crazy fast.

    I loved living in Fukuoka, but it definitely wouldn't be for everyone.

    Paris and if I could really swing it, maybe a country or village place (i.e. south of France or Burgundian village, like Beaune).

    All depends on my financial situation. I'd say Harlem or on a very large tract of land in South Carolina's Low Country around Beaufort.

    Montreal. The girls are amazing, the food is cheap (if you stay out of Old Montreal) and they all speak English or French.
