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,

    Lol, yeah, the back pockets are a bit aggressive but I really really really like JDM workwear.

    I always see Tagliatore on Yoox. Gave this corduroy one a try for super cheap. Much tighter waist than it looks. Generally quite slim, but with a bit of stretch in the fabric. Nice buttons.

    I read spook country yesterday, which sucked, and now am on zero history, about which the jury is out.

    Wow what didn't you like about spook country? Other than the use of a macguffin... I liked it a whole lot.

    The cuban-chinese ninjas are awesome.

    I think Iiked Zero History the best, but overall the trilogy was my favorite of Gibsons. His speculative fiction stuff to me is way better than his cyberpunk.

    But eh I really wasn't a fan of the noirish, sparse, fill in the blanks yourself prose of the cyberpunk era. Moving slightly more towards Stephenson's info dump, overly detailed tangents style is only a plus in my mind.

    Spook country is practically the same book as pattern recognition, except without any interesting characters or the knife-edge prose that made the first book enjoyable. Pattern Recognition was interesting almost as an instantly obsolete reference to pop culture - hypertemporal to the point at which it became almost atemporal. Spook Country was the opposite: so bland it was unrecognizable as the era he was aiming for. And the "cool' in SC is too CSI: Miami for me; if the first one suffered from a kind of deus ex, or whatever it is you call the fact that there's never any real danger, the second one suffered from too much trying to remove the deus. My reactions, of course. And Cayce is cooler than Hollis, who is so yawn-inducing I want to scream. I continue to like Milgrim, whose name I appreciate.

    Fair enough, I think you are more discerning than me in this arena. Cayce definitely > Hollis. I love the idea of Hubertus Bigend though and why I keep trying to acquire an international klein blue suit.

    hit me up if that doesn't work out for you unless it fits a 48 and not a 46 :( was eyeing that but the measurements seemed a bit too big for me.

    I had one :( It got stolen. Next time I'm buying mine in japan and getting the non L version. I'm too short to justify the extra length.
