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.

    Does buying cheap clothes for a Halloween costume count?

    I spent $73 on cologne. Does that count? I was running low.

    Total damage please? $$




    Leave it to Ace to find a loophole. :) How much did you have in mind?




    Dubious, as it can be argued that cologne could fall under personal hygiene....I'll give it a pass, but thank you for reporting it!




    Gentlemen...
    It is now Monday October 17, 2011
    I must apologize for not getting the list of official NPC Members up as yet.
    I have been suffering a very nasty chest infection these past days and have been bedridden.
    If my strength permits, I will attend asap.

    Please kindly continue to report in as the data will all be tabulated at months end.
    I am purchase-free thus far this month.
    Thank you all.

    Can't believe the month is more than halfway over! September was hard, but this month has been a breeze. For those who haven't joined but are thinking about it - give it a try. I'm amazed that I haven't spent a penny on clothes since the beginning of September. And guess what? I haven't had to go naked a single day. Turns out I have a lot of clothes already. You probably do, too.

    MOL - get well soon.

    MadAboutPlaid, thank you.
    Have been suffering chronic Bronchitis all my life and currently enduring another wave. I fear it is teetering on Pneumonia. Even to take a monet to type this is making me very dizszy,
    I must go back to my bed. Keep up the good fight everyone. and please report infidelities or even temptations, that others will help talk you out of it.
    Stay strong. I'll probably have my strength back in a few more days.

    I think I will make the shirt myself. Couldn't find anything suitable in stores.

    $22 on PRL undershirts at C21 last week. I just got back from performing in Taiwan and realized before I left that after losing 35 lbs I didn't have enough undershirts that fit to get through the week. Fun hang at the Taichung Jazz Festival though!

    Final tally for the HF-related damage mentioned on an earlier page: $107. About $20 for the two shirts, $87 in overall shipping costs to Australia. :fu: However, I shouldn't complain. If these shirts are really $200+ shirts in US terms, then it should make the typical shirt Australian shops charge $200 for look like something from Kmart in comparison.

    On a related note, I broke down and bought two Rhodes & Beckett ties on sale for $39.95 each. I could claim one of these as a necessity, as I bought a purple shirt just prior to the October NPC commencement date ... but I won't.

    So yeah, I suck at NPC this month. :p

    I failed. Took advantage of the 40% off AE and bought a pair of Bayfields for $210.... Hope they fit.

    You may have failed but you don't get to quit.
    That goes for all of you out there...10 more days to go.

    Been relatively good so far, work travel has made avoiding new purchases pretty easy but I did drop off 2 pairs of jeans for alterations before the October 7th date and picked up/payed for them after. $36 there.

    I failed also. Bought a blazer. Had to though. I have only one winter jacket that currently fits me. Can only leave the house once per week as a result! Might put the others on B&S.
