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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Gah. Really, a sadness in the U.S. is that reduction in price compensates for any loss of quality or humanity, and I don't think that loss is fair!

    My worst Manhattan experience was in State College, PA. I saw a bottle of M&R sweet vermouth in the bar fridge, pointed to it, and said, I guess that means you can make me a Manhattan? The barkeep said, Sure! I got a funny red looking thing. It was appalling. I asked what it was, and he said it was Makers and maraschino cherry juice.

    Yah, seriously. I don't know why. I don't really feel they are well-balanced or get the best from their ingredients. Dunno. But my signature cocktail is a Martini variant, so, dunno again.
