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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    I particularly enjoyed his second turn as Principal Vernon in "Not Another Teen Movie". I enjoy character actors who are capable of lampooning themselves.

    RIP.

    I did see that he died from meso. I wonder how he got it? Steve McQueen's cause was pretty easy to figure out - years of working on car and bike brakes, and heavy smoking on top of it. But this guy? I don't know.

    Wow.. In unintentional honor of this I probably inhaled some brake dust Saturday.

    I wouldn't worry unless they were old brakes. Most brakes by 1990 were asbestos-free, and a lot were by the mid-1980s.

    They may be as old as 1974, but I'm not going to worry too much. I don't feel any more cancerous today than Friday.

    I hope that Orange Crop Report I got from him is accurate. Jon.

    Not to speak ill of the dead, but am I correct in remembering that Paul Gleason was implicated in some sort of child-porn scandal several years ago - or was that another adult actor from one of the John Hughes films?

    You might be thinking of Jeffrey Jones, the principal in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
