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.

    VLSI, I had a steamer like that and it sucked. It steamed great, but the design seemed really poor to me. I'd fill the tank with water, steam what I needed to, and then try to let the steamer run until the water in the base was gone. But it would never be used up completely, so then I would have to collapse the rod you hang stuff from and try to flip it upside down over the bathtub to get the water out. Half the time there would be a little residual left. After a couple months, it started growing mold inside. Really all they needed to do was put in an opening in the bottom so you could drain the leftover water.

    TL;DNR - It may work great on your clothes, pay attention to how difficult it is to clean out.

    Amazon reviews were really good. Jiffy J2000. It wasn't cheap, so it better work well.

    I have this and use it all the time. Works great and I would recommend it to anyone. I have never had any mildew or mold issues with it.

    when you say "rinse out" you mean you fill it with water and then turn the whole contraption upside down to drain it? maybe it's just my tiny ass bathroom, but this was a huge pain for me. the rod on top was always getting caught in the shower curtain, hah. Still, if they just put a plug in the bottom it would improve the thing x1000. i didn't have this exact model either (don't remember what it was because I tossed it), so maybe it's improved. just my 2 cents

    It does appear that way and bothers me just a tiny bit. Not as much as how chunky chelseas look at the top of the foot/below your shin. Most of my pants have hems that sit at 7" or less, and the shoe looks kinda big.

    Frying pan, sauce pan, chef's knife, baking stone, peel. Why is this all so expensive? :(

    I have a friend that will forge you custom knives instead, if you want. as far as I know it's a lot cheaper than buying name brand, and he knows his shit. frying pan - find cast irons killets at antique shows, garage sales, thrift stores, ebay etc. Baking stone and peel...well, who knows. Find some rocks and make your own peel.

    original or super?

    I used to use Blue Magic. Lately I've been using Sumotech because it doesn't make my hair greasy.
