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.

Melb members, did you remove your tie and/or jacket in public during the heatwave?

    Why on earth should that be a question. If you are not comfortable then you cannot do your job, whatever it is, properly.

    REMIOVE your jacket when it is hot!

    I ditched the suit for pants and a shirt. No tie, sleeves rolled up above the elbow and I ditched the socks as well.

    Godamn it's been hot.

    I have to wear a suit for work and don't much like wearing a suit without a tie, so I kept the tie (madness I know). I also kept my jacket but only actually wore it for attending a tribunal hearing. Looks like next week won't be quite so scorching - fingers crossed!

    C'mon dudes, toughen up! 40C is a cool day for Perth...

    Nah just kidding, I'm not liking the extreme heat at all.

    Was actually hotter here in Adelaide, which really sucked.

    I envy your cold snap in Melbourne..

    I kept with my suit & tie despite it being absurd to do so in such shitty heat conditions. I actually use my jacket to hold alot of stuff for work so I don't have to carry a man bag. I didn't have an office to take shelter in either...

    My only advice - stay hydrated and network rooms (that don't have power failures) are great places to relax in!
