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 a sweater (acrylic fabric) that has a bunch of lint embedded in it from something in a recent wash load. I've tried lint brushes (make it worse) and those sticky roller things (worthless). Any ideas short of picking each bit out by hand?

    Get a lint shaver. I have one by "Windmere" that works extremely well for this exact problem. I have seen some by Conair and Salton, and other low-priced home appliance brands. Mine was at a thrift store for $2, and I have seen them there consistently. I don't know where you would get a brand new one, though. Edit: now that I reread it, you have embedded lint, not self-lint "pills". The shaver doesn't work as well for that, as I recently found out after washing socks with brand new towels, but it does work.
