    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.

    ok, long story short, a guy here in lubbock was CFO of a publicly traded company and stole $78M thru some bogus invoicing scheme. he got caught and they are auctioning off EVERYTHING they could seize, down to worn dress socks. i rooted thru the clothing lot and found several euro 58L blazers from isaia that are on STP (one of the checks and the red bamboo), several purple label cashmere blazers with tags still on, a TON of pants, some with tags still on and 3 big boxes of shoes, i only rooted thru one box but found a size 11.5 EG cocoa suede wingtip and a pair of mantellassi. neither worn. there were a ton of purple label dress shirts in 16.5 that probably werent worn but had to be cleaned for the purposes of the auction. i highly doubt anyone will bid on this stuff so i could get it cheap (HOPE) so i'll give you guys first crack at it. also might pick up a 2003 BMW z8 alpina [​IMG]

    Sounds pretty interesting. Unfortunately not my size, but for any 58L out there, perhaps a great score.

    Enough about the clothes, how about the Z8? From the same auction of the crooked CFO? Post pictures or I'll never buy anything from you again!

    Why can't there be more skinny crooked CFOs? Or maybe the skinny ones are too smart to be caught!

    This guy probably didn't know that you can never be too rich or too thin

    true story:
    the golf cart is the one thing i absolutely want to get b/c it's so outrageous. my wife thinks i'm joking, but i'll be i nthere bidding on it. i got interviewed on tv on monday while out there. on camera, i mentioned that i wanted to get the 76 eldorado and put leopard interior inside like al pacino in scarface. i was really proud of myself, but my wife said i looked like an idiot. what does she know?

    That auction sounds awe. some. I am so jealous right now. I would definitely bid on the Z8. You're lucky I'm not there.
