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 have no explanation for this, but somehow Yanagimachi's lasts just seem...off to me. Maybe bengal-stripe can weigh in with a few chosen words as I've none to give. This is just something visceral, a feeling I get.

    Didn't know 余 translates to See...

    Is this Cantonese Alan is speaking? I can't really say I've been much to the Far East, but it doesn't sound like Mandarin to my ears. I like the sounds I hear.
