    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.

    Count me in. I've got a bunch of stuff due to be finished in the next couple of weeks, so if I buy anything else between now and the end of next month it's just gluttony.

    I'm also starting a sub-division of the "no purchase club" called "go to the gym" club. I'll be the sole member for now. I know most of you won't care, but to shame myself, I'll report skipped days here.

    An offer or confirmation of order, I'd think. I may need to join this club late after buying a lot more than I should have in January. But now there's an expensive fur-lined sweater on eBay that I absolutely have to own, plus someone just listed my single most wanted pair of jeans and they are not cheap by a longshot either. And I just found a shirt on Yoox that I saw at Holt Renfrew and loved but missed in my size on sale. And there's more .... you begin to see why I don't usually even bother attempting buying bans.

    niidawg3, methinks you were playing the home game version.
    You weren't signed up in the first place, unless I missed something earlier?

    Prince, If you will commit to March 20th, I'll add you on. Let me know.
    The challenge is 2 months. I'm sure you can do it?....standing by for your response.

    Possible I can be a late joiner? I plan on starting Feb 1st. And go at least all of Feb. It will be tough, but cleansing as well.

    MOL -- Still trucking. Second fitting for a suit (for cloth I received three months ago) is in the middle of next month, but no payment will be due until the end of March at the earliest. That is my only outstanding liability. My wife is thrilled.

    Bought 5 polo shirts from lands' end canvas for going to the gym, $6 each. I don't really consider this a clothing purchase, more like underwear.

    OK so my sunglasses are falling apart and in case you haven't heard there's no ozone layer down here... I'm seeking special dispensation for a replacement pair...

    ...Phuck it, I'll go blind for the cause and buy 'em in the autumn.

    I violated the oath yesterday when I bought a few items from Land's End Canvas and their awesomely cheap sale prices. I figured the prices were too good to pass up, especially for something that would look nice and that I wouldn't care if I dirtied it up working outside.

    Fortunately, my will power returned before the end of the evening and I realized that I don't need any more clothes for working outside - in fact, that's probably what I need the least of in my wardrobe! I was able to cancel the order before it was actually shipped.

    Well done M-P, I hope to be able to resist the urge for a new shirt or two whilst they are on sale, the will is there but it is weak!

    Okay, so I just bought an engagement ring. Not sure if it counts as a violation, but I have no regrets.

    I'll update the scorecard sheet later today. Sorry I've not tended to it in the last few days.
    My SO's computer died and guess who has to tend to it.

    I'm still going strong. My checking account has grown to $656. Just enough to pay March rent when March comes along. I'll keep adding to it with some more B and S sales.

    Optometry school is such a bummer like that.

    I bought a couple of dresses for my gf, since I couldn't buy anything for myself. [​IMG]

    Oh, and going to the gym every weekday so far. Feels great!
