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.

    10 minutes since this comment, and no photoshop of it. SF is a fantastic forum, but would benefit from more bored photoshop experts.

    There are no known images of Metro. If not, Mr. Sam Im sure would be on it.

    Unbelievable.

    That Cabinet is something you don't see made anymore. A true gem.

    Not to mention the SAB briefcase and extensive collection of alpha shoes.

    Sometimes I wonder "what do these guys do for a living?!"

    Those shoes are worth over $30k easily. What do you guys do? I work I'm finance and am learning how to dress properly so I'm still a newbie.

    Cheers.

    You may have OCD. Consult your physician. Also I would like to point out that there are children starving in the world.

    That is all.

    Not to snark, but I'm going to, the plastic magnetic catches at the top of the cabinet are really jarring for me. This is a painstakingly crafted cabinet nearly ruined by 2 dollar walmart catches (or at least it looks that way). Wasn't there a more elegant way of holding the doors shut? Lots of Tansu hardware available that would have fit in better, in my opinion.

    Of course not, but if you're going to do it then do it right. The simple solution would have been to hollow out a piece of teak and place the magnets in that. That way you would have had a nicely shaped block of matching wood rather than metal or plastic catches. Much more elegant.
