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.

    Manny's, Berghoff, Miller's Pub... but of course I doubt you'd ever even think of setting foot in any place similar to those .

    It went exceptionally well. Got a tour and met with the president, who's really an awesome guy. He seemed to like me, and after about an hour, I was officially offered the position. It's a little bit less than what I was looking for, salary wise, but it's just entry level and comes with pretty good benefits and potential for growth. I just have to take some time to consider everything before I make a final decision.

    So if you take it, will you be moving to Chicago? Place is great! If you take it, book at Charlie Trotter's before they close.

    Yeah. I'd have to.

    Ate a whitefish sandwich at Blackbird's today. Good call.

    I love Blackbird- if there's value to be had eating out, it's there. You should get on Craig's List and buy a ticket to Next, and let us know how that works out.

    Ya. The president at Polyscience had just been to Next elBulli last week. He said it was his last favorite of all of the ones he's been to, and he's gone to them all. Apparently, Achatz is working on opening a development kitchen. Must be nice for him to have Polyscience right in his back yard.

    From what I've heard, Achatz has done as much for PS as they've done for him. He really put their name out there in a strong way

    Congrats on the job offer, Mgm. Time to become a working stiff like (most) of the rest of us.

    I'm pretty impressed mgm is willing to go out to Chicago alone and work at his age. Partly because he's spent most of his time in his mom's kitchen for a year straight, and then partly because I was faced with the same thing (moving to Chicago alone, to work and find life itself) and I ended up chickening out and just moved to Asia instead, where you can do whatever fuck you want to and feel less bad about it.

    Totally agree, I almost signed up to train to be a weapons system officer in FA18s but came to my senses in time to escape to Asia :D

    So do all you pussies just move to Asia when you get scared? Does the fact that ive moved to brand new cities without any support net twice make me an uber-badass?
