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

    I think on a touch-screen tablet it might be OK, but on a large screen desktop PC? Fortunately for the moment, Win 8 still offers classic desktop mode. But if MS starts forcing it on everyone, in future versions of Windows.

    Nevermind, I should read other replies before making my own.

    I'll just say this, I think Android is *now* the typical Linux distro heh.

    FWIW I've had the Surface Pro for a couple of months now and I'm certainly using it much more than Acer w700. It's good to have the touch screen, pen input and keyboard input all in one machine. The Type cover is pretty good, though sometimes the trackpad detects my palm or whatever and pings the cursor around, plus it's difficult to type with the machine on your lap - you need a good flat surface. The battery life has been fine, though not iOS/ android/RT standard. I've taken it on my travels, and it's been one of the best portables I've used. OneNote is great to jot things down and collate stuff together - though I wish the android versions could 'see' the handwritten/drawn stuff.
