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.

    MYSTERY Exotic Longwing Gunboats.

    I've gone a bit "vintage exotics" crazy lately. Talk about "niche collecting"... THANKS, Meister.

    Anyway, when I bought these, the owner told me he thought they were shark, but they obviously are not. I've tried to ID the skin against quite a few exotic leathers, but can't seem to do so. I KNOW they're some kind of exotic animal leather (because the patterns are just way too irregular in shape and size to be regular calf's leather with a pressed pattern), please HELP ME ID!!!

    I'd say mountain ram. There should be a picture of a Cleverley pair on ASW's site.
