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.

    i remember when they were gonna cancel the wire and i read the following editorial:

    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...DG1FA8O1P1.DTL

    the middle aged white man who wrote the piece wore a du-rag with an orange prison jumpsuit--perhaps, in honor of avon barksdale? i thought that was pretty cool.

    I'm not sure if there's a joke in there I didn't get, but that's Jeffrey Tambor from AD.

    Er, at the risk of looking stupid, I clicked the link, read the story, saw the picture, still not sure why he referred to the writer as wearing the do-rag and orange jumpsuit. Again, unless that was a joke, which I obviously didn't find humor in.

    Ah, okay. Sorry, yeah, I believe it was an amusing, purposeful misrepresentation of the picture on the part of mizanation. [​IMG] If you didn't find it funny before, now you REALLY won't find it funny.

    I miss AD terribly, while we're at it.

    Oh. Insinuating that the writer looked like Tambor in the jumpsuit? Got it. Yeah, no big chuckle here.

    Dear God I was getting painfully nostalgic just reading the article. [​IMG] I may have no choice but to bust out my season 2 DVD when I get home.

    thanks, sauce. [​IMG] actually, i really did mistake the author for the guy in the jumpsuit. i think it's appropriate to defend myself by saying, "all middle-aged white people look the same to me!" but, that would probably go down pretty bad around here. i kid, i kid. now that i see it's the guy from AD, the pic offers a whole new level of deepness in respect to the article. i guess he had the guy pose as avon or omar just for the editorial?

    No, he dresses that way in prison in at least one episode. Hilarious.

    Another great scene/cute little quirk was when both Stringer Bell and Bunny Colvin are about to get offed, figuratively speaking. Stringer at the hands of Omar and Bunny being sent off by Deputy Commissioner Rawls. Right before their respective Guillotines are about to drop they both say, "Get on with it motherfucker". I just love little subtleties like this. [​IMG]

    ^^ I remember being impressed with that at the time. The writing is so consistently solid.

    I've never been as excited for anything like I am for Season 5.

    Watching this show right now is like seeing Citizen Kane on opening night or listening to the Velvet Underground in 1967.

    Hah. I found another one last night. Namond says to Michael, "I'll take any motherfucker's money if he givin it away", as does Clay Davis to Mayor Clarence Royce.

    The prequel where Bunk meets McNulty for the first time is funny.
