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,

    "Trip with the guys" sounds cool and manly. "Mancation" sounds like a gay orgy.

    The guys on Brokeback Mountain were taking "mancations".

    mancations...sounds so...unappealing. it sounds like 'medications for men' or 'incantations for men', or something.

    i can't see myself ever using that word in a normal conversation.

    i was thinking it, you said it.

    ...

    i've been on "road trips". never went on an airplane or cruise ship with a group of guys. that concept sounds a little "Entourage" to me, although if i were a jet setter i might have a different view.
