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 think chinos and polos can look really good when they fit PERFECTLY and are not worn together. But neither look good after sundown, IMO.

    I don't find it to be a chore dressing up, but there is a dressing up and really dressing up. A pair of khakis, navy sportcoat, oxford shirt and a necktie is really not that outrageous and it's certainly passable at most places.

    If I'm in the shop working on a project than I'm dressed down, but the moment I decide I need to leave for lunch/meeting/dealing with suppliers I dress up into that khaki/blazer look even if i avoid the tie. I just think that it shows respect to who I'm dealing with and in turn they treat me with more respect that if I look like I just stepped out of the shop.

    Obviously if the occassion calls for it than I'm more formally dressed, but I find khakis/sportcoat to be a nice bare minimum.
