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,

    I was going to reply to FNB's reply to my post but then I saw him write "old boy" and I just gave up on taking him seriously.
    plus you have more-than-paid your sartorial dues with some awesome looking suits I recall from a tailor in Seoul...no need to defend yourself on that front man.

    Chuck Norris's real last name is Buff?

    In the theme song from "The Flintstones" the line after "Let's ride with the family down the street" is "Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet."

    I just noticed that Nick adjusts his tie. Now I have avatar envy.

    Made you a little something. If J ever lets us use 110k avatars, this can be yours.

    Sort of... I consider R supranational - operating only in the rarefied air of the Shoedom. [​IMG]

    "Old boy" is all that contributed to your disregard?

    Maybe I've become prematurely nitpicky at the tender age of 26.

    I'm 24, dude. Contributes to the irony.

    "old boy" is a phrase that, among other things, signifies a certain kinship. Not only was it apt, but I felt it was complimentary to you. I saw no irony in FNB trying to make friends with you...

    The internet is a bad place for making friends.

    I'm more partial to "˜old sport' myself, if only because of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

    Since it's obviously quite hip and incidentally boosting the post count, I'd like to join in with another pointless post to this utterly pointless thread. [​IMG] Cheers!

    The verb is not French. I always figured it was only "fetch" with a French accent. "FÃ[​IMG]chez la vache" -> "Fetch the cow".

    That's also my understanding. First time I saw the movie with friend we heard "pitchez la vache" which could be interpreted as some slangy quebecker term for "throw the cow!!"

    By the way is business appropriate for black suits? I wouldn't want to have to give up my job...
