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,

    Sweet.
    It's a bit like B-more crack, I'll warn you. You'll end up ordering all sorts of s*** on the theory, "oh what the hell, it's free shipping".

    Amazon Prime is a genius idea. 2 day free shipping = so many impulse buys, and they get 80 bucks a year out of me on top of it.

    It's evil. And the ability to account share is pure genius.

    Eh. To each his own, but with many books -- particularly longer books -- I enjoy the physical heft, and also the sense of physically moving through it. I love the kindle for when I travel, but I'm set enough in my ways to prefer reading paper books when I'm home. Plus they're much better for killing bugs and stuff.

    i did it for my roku player, the free shipping on these "book" things was just a side benefit.

    also, i have no interest in reading off of a screen. would be like a never ending tl;dr.

    Eh, I used to think so...but owning a kindle made a huge difference.

    The screens are not true screens...they actually look like a piece of paper (especially the new paperwhite). Didn't take long before clicking the next button felt as natural as turning a page. I read every GoT on paper...but when the next one comes out, I will almost certainly be buying a digital version.

    Just don't go by the user name of "Rambo." I hear that would be frowned upon.
