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.

    just checked with a friend that was a new grad and what you are saying doesn't sound right...

    Don't get me wrong here, I'm not being paid anywhere near there. I was just under the impression that's what the average SFer gets paid.

    Lots of sfers are in their early 20s and many are in college. I doubt the sw&d side is in the 100ks but the older CM crowd is probably.

    The average CM'er is paid $350,000 and receives annual bonuses of $150,000+.

    The average SWD'er receives a $40 allowance weekly, and an extra $10 if mom is feeling generous.

    Shrug, that's the package for top recruits. YMMV.

    Dude not new grads which is what we are discussing. I literally have a friend that finished at top of his class and was recruited. He was the advertisement for the school for a while and I was just on gchat with him. He confirmed to me that the 100k trifecta is not real.

    Top new grad recruits is what I'm talking about. Anyway, neither here nor there. They've been doing at least $100+k 50k $125k type packages for years.

    Why are you so hell bent on proving him wrong?

    He claims to work in recruiting in the field and is speaking from his experience. I'm sorry your friend didn't get that package, but what's the point...?

    Cyc wid it can you confirm you're talking about new grads ? Are you sure about the multiples of five you just mentioned ? How many significant digits...oh you are sure ? I think you're wrong though I just got off gchat with bill gates he mentioned that no way could it be multiples of five. You don't know me personally. Why did you have to attack me personally it was just a joke move on.

    I never provoke anyone or butt in to any conversation that has nothing to do with me for any reason, seriously. Let's just drink tea and wear bath robes.

    Every single time I order from Tres Bien or have EMS shipping from Japan it completely blows me away the distance my shit traveled while only taking <5 days to get to me. Meanwhile I have an order shipped from California via UPS and it takes 10 days. I've come to really dislike UPS and Fedex shipping.

    I have received a package from New Zealand in 3 days. UPS from the East Coast takes 7 days minimum. Shit is sad.

    I was at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore (great museum if you haven't been), and I noticed a Pez dispenser on the bottom shelf in their collection I hadn't noticed in my previous visits to the museum that really caught my eye... a Santa Claus wearing a leather double rider.

    I assume the thing is ridiculously expensive and rare, but I also very much appreciated that it even had a YKK zipper.

    That was actually my first size 48 ToJ that didn't work out. I'm glad to see it's getting some use.
