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.

    Cheers,

    RO detroits, overdyed indigo so they actually look a lot darker in person and almost black in most light which I wasn't expecting. They fit perfectly though and the construction is pretty substantial so I'm really happy with them.

    Agreed. I remember starting but never being able to finish The Eye of the World.

    Fritz Leiber's 'I'll Met In Lankhmar' was pretty good, IIRC. Mignola's 'Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser' comic book adaptation was nice too.

    It's been 25 years, but I remember enjoying Steven Brust's 'Jhereg'. The protagonist is a cool spell and dagger slinging assassin with a snarky miniature dragon companion. Had a very well thought out plot.


    For more Russian Sci Fi that's inspired video games (S.T.A.L.K.E.R) as well as a movie (Andrei Tarkovsky's 'Stalker'), check Boris Strugatsky's 'Roadside Picnic'. You can read it here.

    Couldn't wait any longer looking for peacoats, so decided to go all out on B. Rickson.

    I'd be lying to myself if I said I enjoyed reading books, no faster way to put me to zzzzz, obviously where it applies, id rather go touch, see it and experience it for myself rather than read about it

    I got this floral Maison Martin Margiela T, doesn't really go with the rest of my Margiela, mostly will be for vacations to wear with my white OB setters or something. I did not like it until I saw in person, the colors are great

    They run slim 1 size. I'm normally a size 30, 44/46 and the pair I got are 31s which fit spot on.

    Yup and you can save your work as word, excel, pdf etc. as well, so sending it to someone with a pc isn't a problem.
