1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    I like the view of the Palisades as you cross the GW into NJ

    The Taconic State Parkway is also quite a scenic drive.

    If they're expecting the storm to land on Monday, why are they closing the subway today?

    Big rain is supposed to start today. Some lines will surely flood but are they closing the whole system?

    9 hours in fact, according to the Times. 7 for the bus system, which is why buses are running 2 hours later than the subway today.

    I know. I leave SanFo today and the Giants win the series. I turn my car toward NYC and the heavens threaten to wash it from the earth.
