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.

    Warehouse is a funny place. My father-in-law loves the "deals" but 1/2 the wine he gets is turned enough that even I can tell it's bad (his solution is to 'just drink it fast'). I have seen some good booze deals on stuff that you don't see everywhere...

    Cool weather when? :confused:

    indeed some of their wines are of sketchy provenance, but if you know a little about what you're looking for they do have a few deals. Still, I'd sooner just deal with the train and hop on over to BQE wines for some deals.

    I'm a vodka drinker. I buy the big bottle of Stoli for $35(plus tax) at Warehouse vs close to $60 at my local store 2.5 blocks from my casa. They also have some of the better prices for spirits in NYC.

    spirit markups tend to vary quite a bit from shop to shop. The stores with the actual lowest prices around are making like a buck over wholesale on it. Wine tends to be a different story.

    I just replaced my 2 rear wheels because they were dented due to the harsh winter. And it's almost winter again.

    some c sucker hit my front quarter panel, above the wheel well, with a home depot cart. Broke the small turn signal light and left me a small orange stained dent right below it. Its best that he/she was not there when I got to the car as I was with my very ghetto brother and he would have demanded a 2x4 across the person's head on principle alone, and I would rather not spend time in jail.

    If you would have been driving a pick-up truck, that wouldn't have happened. :lol:

    pickup trucks end up beat to shit in NYC because they're too fucking big for their own good.

    The bright side is that you can go directly from your interesting summer fabrics to your interesting winter fabrics.

    That's what happens when you take your Bentley to HD. You need to go to Lowes.

    It's real.

    Foo was right!

    saw a cyclist blow a red light and completely annihilate a pedestrian. A skull slamming pavement makes a heck of a noise.
