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.

    This was my final act.I have a 13 week old son and we have just moved house so my shoe buying could be over for a while.Thats why I wanted to go out like a firework.
    If Aportnoy ever decides to do this I am sure he will go out like a nuke![​IMG]

    I'm not married, so I am curious - would those of you who are actually want your wife to call you about a $1,500+ shoe delivery? Or would you rather that they slowly crept in to your rotation?

    Thats the thing,I have the sale shoes but I also ordered a MTO pair around 12 weeks ago.So I was thinking have they shipped the sale shoes only or the MTO as well.I asked my girlfriend how many boxes there were and she said she couldnt tell as they were boxed together,I will open the big box and check if you like she said.NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I replied,if she caught sight of the receipt I would be packing my bags.[​IMG]

    Then you say "What, these? I've had these forever. I just got them resoled actually."

    Oh c'mon, they are much smarter than that. You think they wouldn't know a brand new pair from a resoled one?

    The best solution is to have them shipped to your office and smuggle them into your house one pair at a time in a Duane Reade shopping bag.

    this is a very very funny thread.

    [​IMG]

    because i can totally relate with the spouse/gf thing.

    my wife literally had choke my neck with her two hands and brought me down because of a couple of pairs of shoes she discovered.
    they will find out in the end. eventually. you cant hide forever.
    i had slight spousal abuse marks on my neck for the next few days. but who would believe a wife would abuse the poor husband?

    she has a way to blackmail me now to get me to do things for her.

    if she wants me to do something, or come back home right away, etc. she just says on the phone," i will take out your shoes" ..and bam, i do whatever heck she says.
