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.

    Dunno, coats can feel pretty unwieldy at times like when, say, you're standing around in a crowded bar

    Wonder why nobody ever talks about lampo zippers. Same level as riri. Guess they're just not as common.

    Anyone have any recommendations on credit cards? I saw someone mentioned it a few pages back. I'm looking into one that will serve basically as a debit card that I pay off after each purchase. Would love one with good reward points/travel points.

    You want a charge card. AmEx is pretty great.

    Priceline has a visa with 2% cashback (on anything) that is really good, I use it for basically everything but rent and bar tabs.

    The answer is the USPS.

    I used to have one, but eventually closed my account. Too many places still don't accept amex. Not very convenient imo

    Wait, how recently? That's zero fun.
     

  15. They changed it this Monday. Priority does automatically come with tracing now though. I didn't really notice a price hike, in fact I thin I saved money from shipping the same thing two wees ago irrc. I should look into my receipts and find out..



    RFT: Whenever people say that shoes come with box I always think the shoebox will be inside a shipping box but am always disappointed that the shoebox = the shipping box.

    it's over $5 to ship priority flat rate envelope in the US, and canada is like $19 now instead of $13 IIRC

    My wife just did the math a few months ago and the best deal all in is the Costco Amex, but you have to have a membership to Costco. If you don't want to go the Amex route, just get a Capital One Visa/MC. I don't believe there is an annual fee and there are very few restrictions on using the travel points.


    Why wouldn't you use it for bar tabs?


    Eh, USPS has a lot of fiscal problems. They have to do whatever they can to keep from going into default.

    so go pay fedex or ups

    or raise taxes to keep the for-loss business model afloat

    I bet if it didn't exist the other couriers wouldn't be forced to operate at higher costs either

    but I know you just wanted to complain about something anyway lol

    I do sometimes, but a) it's easier to pay with cash and makes it less likely to drop $100+ in one night and b) there's several bars around here where I'm friends with the bartender so I just give them a big cash tip and drink for free

    It's not a business, it's a service with split funding... by that logic we should do away with public transportation too
