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,

    Not the pink one but one that's just as much etched in SF's history and collective ethos... Have you ever heard these two words around these parts? (usually whispered, and followed by either sighs, giggles or mentions of Darren Beaman)

    I'm not sure that you can really steal a work in the public domain...

    No button down collars.
    No sport jackets with jeans/khakis/chinos.
    No French Cuffs.
    No dress shoes with jeans, though I suspect that might actually be a real rule.
    No feeding after midnight.

    Looks like almost all of my personal rules have been covered already. Here are a few that I didn't see mentioned


    • No solid color silk pocket squares
    • No dimples in ties - I work with an impecabbly dressed older gentleman that never has a dimple, I am not ashamed to admit that I started copying him
    • Rubber soles or topy only on dedicated rain shoes - I dont care what anyone says about sole material not affecting breath-ability, my feet get clammy with non leather soles
    • Metal taps on front of shoe sole, rubber on back - Too many close calls on marble floors for metal taps on the rear. Rubbers save lives :D
    • No jewlelry besides wedding ring and cufflinks
    • Baseball hats are for baseball players, fisherman hats are for fishermen. Unless its a blizzard or gale force winds you wear a real hat. Panama or linen in the spring/summer, Fedora or wool cap in the cold.
    • Grey ribbed singlets under all shirts - Hides the chest hair and nipples and can't be seen under a shirt and as an added benefit the ribbed fabric keeps you cool. Thankfully I don't need the armpit protection provided by a full undershirt
    • No solid white dress shirts - I'm the only guy in temple on Yom Kippur with a blue shirt (I wear a white Kittel on top for all you that are shaking your heads)
