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,

    I'm getting a copy for my birthday. Can't wait to degrade my palate!

    i know what a centrifuge does, I did take HS chem and biology. But seriously, those are not kitchen tools.

    Well, it doesn't have ugly granite, swirly wood and disgusting designs on the ceiling, I can tell you that.

    I didn't learn that in HS Chem or Bio. Must be nice going to those fancy ass Atlanta public schools!

    For the amount of equipment that kitchen houses, I think I could manage to look past the aesthetics.

    It does have a pug hanging around like he owns the place, though.

    His aesthetics mirror his palate.

    Are you purchasing one yourself or receiving it as a gift? Sticker still $625?

    Purchasing. I think it will be useful for me; I like learning new things on my own. Thankfully, it's no longer $625.

    Tell them that the plastic case was cracked. They will most likely offer you a partial refund.
