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,

    The boastfulness vacilates between amusing and tiresome. When you become nasty, all the amusement drains away and the ugly side of the boastfulness, which is never entirely absent, crowds out the redeeming aspects of your personality. Someone who is genuinely as superior to the rest of us as he thinks he is would not act this way. Read Aristotle on magnanimity.

    Is that clear enough? It is in any case the best I can do.

    Check out the Jazz Standard (w/ the exception of the more run down vanguard, it is a favorite), and Pearl's Oyster Bar for great seafood in the village.

    I may be in the minority, but thank god CdA closed. The food was beyond sub par.

    What? Nasty?

    Please don't be nuts.

    And no one is superior. Read Hobbes.

    Read Hobbes.

    I have, and am reading him again just now, as it happens. He is not only wrong, his thought is not relevant to the issue at hand.

    I'm done. He understands me. I am not interested in the coming snark, though I will read it and may laugh at some of it.

    I would insult you, but you are not yet important.

    I might just insult you for the hell of it.

    Before I do, though, I want to know that you are okay with that.

    You are right.

    But then again Mark, those elitest east coast egos are not like yours and mine in our flyover state.

    If you do a walk by of my historic birthplace at 40 Clinton St. on the LES I'll up the ante and buy you drinks too.[​IMG]

    In any event enjoy the trip.

    If you do the LES trip ( an admitted long shot for this NYC trip ), another idea came up too.

    If the weather is nice do a walking tour of Delancey St., certainly a historic place. And then walk directly across the Williamsburg Br. and have a steak at Peter Lugers. I used to do it with my Dad in the 1950s.

    No piano. I play the guitar really badly, but that helps me not at all in my appreciation of Chopin. Although my cousin is a professional musician in Branson (banjo and guitar mostly). On his last studio album he recorded Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring done entirely on banjo. There's some weird shit out there.
