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,

    Intentional renaming we owe to Iammatt (can't find his alias, did he change/leave?). Let's face it if you're too lame to pick your own sofa you might as well not have any.

    Just googled "taskrabbit", great way not to follow any employment laws and make every exploited person into some sort of entrepreneur of their own dissolving quality of life.

    RFT: the Styleforum instagram has been pretty CM heavy for a while now. What gives @LA Guy and @Synthese?

    Cold hard truth. It's just a huge instagram community, and pictures tend to be better, too. That said, we haven't forgotten about you (us?).

    Don't be Judas, @Synthese. Don't be swayed by false promises of silver cufflinks and sprezz!

    Can task rabbit be hired to find out where to kop cheap CPs or GATs? Now there's a business model.

    But then that negates the extra 5% savings. NO CAN DO.

    Need more fitpics - even if you're wearing a (very nice) solaro suit and eating an ice cream cone. Or you could shock your CM customers by wearing something full SW&D (and not that kind your store carries).

    It's hard to separate the different strands of IG fascination, from "visual info/keeping up with a particular topic" to fascination and going through taskrabitting your life to people dedicated to "cool living" or whatever. Amusingly enough, mine is apparently less "pretentious/flashy/look at my lifestyle" than my actual life, a feedback that I found quite flattering (or is it?).

    It's meta-cool that your actual life is more "look at my lifestyle" than an actual look at your lifestyle through your IG lens.

    Maybe it was a dig at my actual life though, or maybe the 30 friends my IG (that's how you're supposed to say it?) is directed to think it is boring. I haven't solved the conundrum yet...

    There's a lot of fire hydrants taken in art galleries, surely someone, somewhere cares about that?

    I misspoke, I meant fire extinguishers, quite banal really.

    Crap like this:
