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,

    I'd probably volunteer at a soup kitchen sort of thing. Helping people out will keep you busy and cheery, and your loneliness won't be so much on your mind.

    As much as I admire EA's big heart. That is the last thing I'd do. Dude, get yourself a couple escorts and have yourself a lesbian show! What better xmas could a guy give himself? Then every xmas from now until forever, whenever your family is bickering around the table or there's chaos in the kitchen, you can just shut your eyes and that image will always be with you.

    Soup kitchen, or lesbian show? You know what your answer is! [​IMG]

    And before you say anything, I've never been a good influence.

    ^^ done it... leaves you feeling amused for a few minutes but if you're like me you'd feel like shit afterwards because you just spent "jacket/suit/shoe money" on bitches and hoes.

    Go ahead though, do it once at least. It's a great anecdote. Better if you don't spend alot of money on it because the more money you spent = the more pathetic it all seems.

    I would love to switch places with you. Christmas is a loud and very unpleasant affair in my household. I have to spend time with too many unwanted relatives and acquaintances...

    Yes. There's nothing wrong with a little shopping therapy, as long as you don't take it to extremes and get in to huge debt because of it.
