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 got my first pair much younger but IIRC Stride Rite and Buster Brown were offering some muuuch better looking stuff 30 years ago.

    I think zipped boots are a good compromise for the younger kids, if trying to avoid another pair of velcro strapped shoes

    In fact, I dislike zippers altogether. Me and my best buddy had a bad experience with a zipper once. Button fly for me now.

    On the long list of awful public authorities, the MTA ranks near or at the top.

    OT1H, the system is quiet good. OTOH, as a governing body they are awful.
