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'm not sure if they still make it. People on the shaving forums who didn't like menthol liked the Proraso red from what I could tell. The only complaint anyone had was that the smell wasn't so hot, but the same can be said for the green tube as well. I think the red does have just the tiniest bit of eucalyptus or menthol.

    I was hoping that Target would sell that stuff so I'd get to try it [​IMG]

    update: i used the red yesterday and am very impressed with it. it takes a back seat to cremo cream, but not by much. excellent lubrication, pleasant subtle scent, and it gave me a good lather without a brush. it lathers up especially well after you've shaved the first time. just add another tiny touch of cream and you get a very thick, opaque layer for the second go around.
