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 anybody who has a camo ferrari and is the grandson of the man who turned his family's company into the machine responsible for 5% of Italy's GDP, is basically on their own planet in terms of style. Green light to do whatever he wants, mainly cuz he can buy all the semafori in italy if he wants.

    Anyone who has ever questioned what people mean by the "golden years of SF" should read this thread in its entirety.

    When not sipping coke, I believe Lapo is busy idling. A man must have an occupation.

    You seem to be an expert on 'dressing gay'.

    Quote: charlie bond

    tom ford looks and dresses gay. lapo looks and dresses gay. that is fine if you are gay or want to appear gay. gay it up if that is your desire and the message you want to communicate to the public. so if you are gay, tom ford and lapo would be great role models. i think that is why these type of men get so much run in the media and get named to best dressed lists etc. but just realize most well dressed straight men do not admire the appearance of these so called style icons, errrr, fashion icons. what straight man would ever want to dress in such a gay manner? doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of being a well dressed straight man?

    Actually Tom Ford is gay? And about Lapo I think that style suits him just fine if someone would wear it it would be Lapo.
