    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.

    RFT: This is cool, but it looks like they never made XL in the white.

    If you're looking for a pen tablet, it's Wacom or GTFO.

    Their Intuos is the pro line, along with cheaper entry-level tablets like the Bamboo. The differences are in sensitivity, with the beginner tablets having less nuance than the pro models. I've only ever used the Intuos tablets (retoucher for 5+ yrs) so I can't tell you how noticeable the difference actually is. I would check Ebay and Craigslist for a used or last-gen one (they're durable and don't evolve much) before shelling out $$$ for a brand-new one. Hope this helps!

    That feeling when you order cheap stuff since it's cheap to go with the stuff you really want only to then find out days later you paid shipping to receive only the cheap stuff :(

    Is it just me or are small stores just terrible in service these days? Up until last fall I never had an issue and almost every purchase was pleasant. Recently it's endless for me. Sale stuff being oversold is common but not hearing about it until days after shipment / being charged is a bit off. If it wasn't in stock when it was packed, wouldn't it just be mentioned then or the next day? Just can't seem to get anything I order correct from various stores. Whether it is stuff being oversold, missing parts of items / missing items in shipment, express shipping paid (with stated 1-2 business day handling) only to have it ship a week later, security tag left on pants (with no action / response until I send multiple emails and I still don't have my SNS pants from weeks ago), emails stating refunds will be processed but then a week delay until they are (plus 2-3 days to show up on CC), "hacked" prices, and / or just no response to emails nor phones. I want to spend money but can't get a response asking for measurements? And then finally getting through on phone to ask and being told it will be sent to you but never get sent.

    Feel I'm pretty reasonable but how do you guys deal with this? I've had to go out of my way to work with half these stores and others I don't even bother as it's not worth my time or hassle. Maybe I'm just sad since my first trip to In-N-Out in months resulted in me getting a soggy ass burger and cold animal fries stuck together.

    Also in what day and age is UPS Ground expedited shipping?

    Any recommendations for a cologne that has similar smell to Aesop's deodorant?

    I don't know what Aesop's deodorant smells like, but online, they describe it as vetiver and I like Guerlain's vetiver. Not that all vetiver smells alike ...

    The guys in this thread might be able to help. HORNS and some of the other people in there are super friendly and knowledgable about scents.

    Anyone know why buttons are often sewn so loosely? Is it because they want to give the button some slack, but machines can't do shanks?

    It's to allow the buttons to fall off so they can land on fertile soil and germinate into new shirt trees
