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.

    "the reason is for Verizon to keep its cables dry - anything to ensure Verizon's service isn't even worse is a good reason to me"

    i feel like some major sexing had to be done by Verizon employees in order to make the NYC powers cool with the random tanks.

    The Hudson Valley is pretty cool if you can get out of your head that 200 miles of the Hudson River - from the Battery to Fort Edward, NY - is a Superfund site.

    Tarrytown is one of my fav places in NY. Rhinebeck is great too. Lots of great villages and towns along the Hudson.

    My colleague, who grew up in a village in Africa, asked me to explain the definition of 'village' in New York. He is baffled by the fact that the are no unpopulated areas in between the villages, they all just run together.

    This is not a NY thing necessarily I guess but it makes me laugh how it's 65 out and all these sad sacks are all bundled up in huge coats and 21 foot school spirit scarves. Really?

    meh its not that weird... considering that it will eventually get frigid, snow, sleet, and ice rain soon enough.....

    I just hate it when it gets like that 20ºF and you have to get bundled up to walk around... but then go down into the subway where its >85ºF and humid and before you know it your sweating your balls off because of the wool sweater + Jacket + wool hat you have on... then you have to start peeling off your layers and end up having to carry around all your shit [which can be very heavy/cumbersome] until you reach your destination... by the time you get there you dropped a glove / hat/ ect :fu:
