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 always enjoy a few snaps of Signor Elkann. The combination of exquisite tailoring on an infinite budget and ridiculous eccentricity panders to my English foppishness. Occasionally, he even manages a coup de maƮtre. Whether you like him or not, I find him to be a breath of much-needed fresh air to these fora, which are currently suffocated within an inch of expiration by groupthink. Anyway, I hope you enjoy.

    Rubinacci.

    thinking about why SF members marmite him. ("Marmite" is a legitimate verb.)

    This thread mostly sucks, so it is no different than other Styleforum threads.

    Plus, Reev and HermesMan are back. What a fine triumvirate we will have when Burnbulb is paroled.

    I agree with you, Loathing. I like this guy and also find him to be inspirational...in not a bit odd.

    He looks terrible for that age.
    Could it be the Euro crisis?

    There's no accounting for tastelessness.

    Stop it. Your endorsement of him is making me want to run to the Alden store.
