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,

    Thank you for pointing the reason out. You made some interesting and perhaps accurate observations.

    Whilst I have no truck with anyone here and I love a bargain as much as the next person. I'm happy to try and support a company who's trying to do something.

    Sometimes that may involve getting a bargain. Other times, eschewing that bargain in favour of providing real support to the industry. I'm sure that I'll be accused of all sorts of things. However, I'm just an ordinary guy with very little money to spend. However, I do appreciate nice things and realise that sometimes (just sometimes), I'll have to pay a premium for them.

    Thanks again

    Clint


    And we're eagerly awaiting the pics of your visit to the AS factory as well as your 2nd and 3rd AS MTOs!

    last deal TRL tried to work out with AS was to have them offer stock AS shoes at a certain discount.

    Yes it was. This is the problem as the shoes were from the premier line, which are also (as per my original post) supplied to other companies either rebadged or renamed. It would have put AS in a difficult situation with larger customers.

    Hi, I started to compose it yesterday, but I got too tired to finish it and I didn't want to bore people [​IMG] Hopefully, I should be able to get it up today.

    I would value you some advice, do you think that my visit is worthy of a new thread, or should I tact it onto the end of an existing thread (I'm thinking the one about Alfred Sargent...gone)?

    I would like to start a new thread, but I don't want to take up space with my indulgent ramblings.

    I do hope everyone likes the shoes as much as I do!!

    Thanks

    Clint

    ^ Good idea. Manton visited some Northampton makers a while back and did a piece that was quite appreciated. Can't see how yours would be less interesting to read![​IMG]
