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.

JL Luffield in museum brown 3. EG Oundle in dark oak (coulda gone Vale but i want one from each of my favorite shoemakers) i already have 2 and 3, so i guess i'm in good shape. as for #1, when's the next Budapest group buy?
