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 prefer the Filenes Basement on the UWS, it gets fewer shoppers than the store on the Ladies Mile which means the selections aren't as picked over. I always say it's worth a stop because if you get there when they have a new shipment, you can really score (I once found a pair of Theory pants for $19.99). The problem with the store on the Ladies Mile is that it is in the midst of Discount Alley, so you get a lot of random shoppers, whereas the store on 79th st doesn't have such a high level of foot traffic, even though it is on Broadway. A new Filenes Basement is opening on Union Square by the end of the year.

    I have to agree about Century 21. Since they reopened after 9-11, I just don't find the selection there to be that great anymore. It certainily isn't the same, but again, worth a trip as our tastes vary and what may not appeal to me is another man's treasure. There's another discount store, Loftworks....in Chinatown which some people like.

    I find Daffys to be pretty much a dump, although the 34th st store does have a pretty good selection of Portalano winter accessories at deep discount.
