    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.

    You have no idea what you're talking about. Not only is that not Lil Wayne, that's not even Dwayne Wayne.

    What are you wankers always moaning about? Feels like paradise out here, just like it felt the last time I visited from Phillyhell

    I used to like Philly before I moved there. It takes a while to feel the city's affective core of resentment and anger over its own relative mediocrity. After a while that's mostly what you notice about the place. I do ham it up though--my day to day life is fine

    I've been in Philadelphia (99% Center City) for the past 3 months due to work. It hasn't been so bad.

    With the whole block west of it gone into thin air, Grand Central is quite majestic to look at now. From Madison, in the evening, it's really grand

    I can't remember the last time we had a rain all day type of day. October has been good.

    also, while this is really for the "things you just don't get" thread, I feel like it needs to be here in the NY thread since it should never be a NY problem, and yet here we are.

    it's a few days old at this point but still a mystery:

    I'm not mad.
    I don't care who.
    I just want to know why.

    Why did you feel the need to leave 10 MATURE PALM TREES in our yard one October night?!?!

    to be fair, the trees have grown on me. I call the yard Palm Court.

    I was in town last Friday-Monday. I had a surprisingly good time. City was not at all what I expected it to be like. Manhattan is bigger than I thought, but less crowded. Went to Katz's. Weather was nice. No complaints.

    They got them tall buildings and these car type things that travel UNDERGROUND. Boy Howdy!

    Also, I assume from the nice weather, you were not in the city for my stay. Many thanks.

    It's a pity about the dog. You could have posed him for a much better shot.

    Does your building happen to have a giant atrium? I can't believe someone means to plant them outside. They'd be dead by Thanksgiving.
