1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Notice the black stripe going across the side of the doors.

    I've been pulled over a couple of times by those u/c police cabs. Each time I was in a cab of my own. I think they may have a specific focus on patrolling yellow cabs behavior

    All current Ferraris are pretty ugly. The F12 is a fucking abomination. At least the FF's awkwardness is backed by some unique functionality.

    The F430 was the last Ferrari I loved looking at.

    I agree with everything you said except for the F430. Are you smoking crack? That thing is hideous. The 458 is the most beautiful Ferrari one can purchase today.

    I had a chance to drive a ferrari when I was a kid (literally, 16). My dad was looking at one and a dealer in LA gave him a loaner (or probably rented it to him, I don't know the details) for a week or so. It was the trickiest bitch to drive. Just super tempermental. I probably popped the clutch inadvertently a dozen times. He didn't buy one in the end.

    modern day Ferraris are super easy to drive. Unless you're not paying attention and you rear-end a delivery truck.

    I'm driving a Ferrari next weekend at some autocross class thing at Citifield. Hopefully I don't get a "super ugly F430" ::rolleyes:

    Something about not stopping for a pedestrian crossing the street. Obvious stake out.
