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.

    i used to believe that NJ drivers were the worst (in the tri-state area) but connecticut drivers are really making a run at the top spot.

    i realize that driving in NYC can suck, but its the quasi metro drivers who live near the city that usually end up combining the worst attributes of suburban "distracted and don't care" with hyper aggressive "i'm in NYC and this is how i think I should drive in NYC!" drivers.

    it was 91 two days ago. and 67 here is very sunny so it feels fine. anyway, stay in that hell hole for all I care, it's already too crowded here.

    I need to find somewhere where it is 78-80 during the day and in the low 60s at night. That's my dream summer weather.

    Maine is actually pretty close to this.

    well that was the TV forecast, accuweather says it will be up to 76 a few of those days.

    The lows are always consistent though, you need a jacket at night, always have.

    It's the NorCal coast, it's like this from Pt. Conception all the way to the Oregon border (and beyond).

    i'm not big on the beach either, have yet to visit a NY one this summer. But it sure was nice waking up in LA, walking to a beach, and spending an hour there to limber up.

    Seattle. Plus it's not humid, and there's no bugs.
