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.

    It likely only works on certain types of fabric.

    It made my jeans sticky like someone had spilled coke all over it and didn't give it any sheen. It does smell but I don't mind it. Fortunately, it sort of does wash off.

    Aside from the one two post above me, any reviews for Otter Wax? I've been wanting to wax a jacket of mine for a while now and with 30% off and free shipping...

    *edit* Ehh, decided to give it a go.

    I've had a pretty stupid time with using Otter Wax on this bag I made, but I think it's my fault. Wax is just not an easy thing to work with when untrained and in unideal conditions.

    Otter says to apply the wax, and then use a blow dryer and to work the wax into the fabric while it's hot. I tried this once on this bag, but I hadn't put on enough wax. Also I think I didn't use enough heat. You can't just point a blow dryer at a spot for a few second and then rub and move on like I did; I think you need to do it a few times. My bag was a. not particularly waterproof, b. pretty streaky, and c. still a little sticky.

    So then, having left the house where there was a blow dryer I could use, I put more wax on the bag and then put the bag in the oven while it warmed up to get the wax to melt into the fabric a little better. Obviously, I couldn't rub it while it was in the oven, but when I pulled it out of the oven, the bag pretty much did not look waxed at all, which is weird, because I'd put a lot of wax on this time. I think I actually made the wax burn up or something. There's a spot or two on the bag that look legitimately waxed, and they don't feel waxy now. So the bag is now 5% waxed.

    But thecow is right, and I hadn't realized before--Otter Wax does smell like Play Doh. I don't mind though. Don't know how it's gonna make all your clothes smell like wax unless you wax everything you own.

    My short advice: Do it, but keep in mind DIY is always an experiment and often an adventure. If you apply wax and your garment isn't waterproof, apply more; if it's sticky, do more of the blowdryer+rubbing step. Don't use an oven.

    I have a waxed coat - Millerain material - and it's basically a lint magnet. It looks horrible. Is that how all waxed stuff acts?

    Cruvoir is the worst. Terrible interface, and they spam your email like crazy if you ever make the mistake of signing up with no option to unsubscribe. I had to block them in order to stop the spam.

    ^^ Been thinking this ever since they began their daily drops on this thread. Got sucked in by the cool iPhone5 cases and when I realized they weren't actually "80% off," I felt shame.

    This should be fixed now. The three standard domestic options of $10 First Class, $25 Priority, and $35 Express.

    There is no handling fee. The only charge is 4% upfront which is for credit cards or PayPal processing.

    I think most will see a major improvement in ease of navigating after some new developments which are in the workings. We tried to do something a little different, and are very receptive to feedback in ways to improve and make easier.

    Trying to improve the navigation and everything will be much clearer soon. Regarding the newsletter; YES this could be really annoying if you no longer wish to subscribe to the newsletter updates and so we will add to future newsletters is a clearly identifiable link to unsubscribe. Thanks for your feedback.

    Since the additional rebate of 25% is on the sale price, the total maximum rebate is approx. 80% with 70% since this is the biggest discount our store is currently offering). Not every sale items is 70%, thus not every item will be 80% off. Thus the sale is up to 80% off.
