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.

    Depending on the number of people and the restaurants POS system, this can be a real pain in the ass.



    I think the real lesson here is always dine alone.

    I don't go out to eat with big groups super often but I do go to bars. With certain friends, I'll get the first round of drinks and then they just won't reciprocate. It's bad enough with a $10-$12 drink, but no way am I picking up a $150 restaurant tab. Obviously not everyone is like this.

    I used to smoke, too, though, and there was definitely sort of a brotherhood among other friends that smoked.

    lol @shah, trying to break the tipping streak. You shall have my 2 cents (see what I did there ? See it?)


    Unless the designed object develops some objectively comprehensible different meaning, I would say: yes, the maker has that right. Dumb example: some 19th century drawing of a politician with his slaves could have been originally meant to display some qualities of said politician, but would be interpreted in a much broader context today.

    Thats one way to define consumer, I would say.

    I agree. Critics also take the narrative and run with it, because its easy. In-depth criticism of almost anything requires a lot of time and work and if you want to write something fast a narrative provides you a guidance to structure your criticism. Are people really surprised about pop-up labels?

    that last part of your post is the most interesting in my opinion. I believe that most designers do not have a clear cut vision of the way consumers should use their products. I think the whole notion of "This is not meant to be worn that way" may apply to traditional clothing (CM) and provides the consumer with the security of doing things right, but goes inherently against the idea of a dynamic design process. The consumer is not just following an instruction manual, but takes that process a step further.

    Runway shows kind of force a designer to project an image of how they want their clothing to be worn, but historically that is a reaction to shows from huge department stores, which basically denied designers their own identity. I don't think any designer envisions its show/lookbook as a way to dictate how their clothing needs to be worn.


    Also, I think everyone who likes thinking about these questions would thoroughly enjoy reading Sontags Against Interpretation!

    Started my new job yesterday, put it on LinkedIn and I've already got sales people messaging me about switching platforms to their product.

    Fuck sales people.

    They're a beast - they've got a new campus being built up so fast. And legions of interns only doing CRM.

    I have sent out an uninsured package (worth $430) from Australia back to an US online store. It's now been 3 weeks and they still have not received it. Would it be safe to say that they have loss it now? What can I do about this? I still have the receipt and article.

    What annoys me is I have sent out many packages worldwide and of course they had to lose the package worth the most money. FML!
