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 like my beard, but the grizzle/gray ages me quite a bit. Good thing I'm married, I guess.

    Would somebody please acknowledge our lad is on safari before he has a stroke due to frustration?

    I should probably take the hint.

    My wife and I were invited for drinks to a lesbian neighbour's apt last week. She asked us into the bedroom and said, "so let me tell you the real reason I invited you over tonight." I glanced at the bed and the straps mounted on the wall above it, and thought they could probably hold our weight. "I was hoping lefty had some ideas on how I can redecorate." lefty

    Speaking as someone who's had the privilege of meeting you in person:
    You should be thankful can finally grow a beard rather than complaining that it makes you look old ... :fu:



    Very much enjoying the travel photos, by the way. Keep up the good work.

    It just gets worse.

    I picked up a number of things at the grocer and the check out chick started dividing them between three bags. I told her to put them in one bag and she hesitated then said, "it will be pretty heavy, Sir."

    This is a blow. I have always pictured you as a sort of Canadian Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway was a lot of things, but he was not an interior decorator.

    Unless she wanted you to hook her up with a moose head and a stuffed tarpon?

    The really funny thing about this is that she put your stuff in three bags instead of two.
