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.

    Really old people always get a pass when it comes to the huge glasses and me wanting to slap them off. I'm weird that way, I know. [​IMG]

    You would have liked mixing with Les sapeurs...

    They're great characters showing sartorial flair...

    I'm sure of it. Brazzaville is purportedly this continent's finest shopping destination outside of South Africa. I could use a more nuanced summer counterpart to my autumn wardrobe

    During our talk on Francafrique recently, I omitted to mention that I recently inherited a Peugeot 607 - standard issue for your government at one time, I think? - to supersede the slightly more entertaining Nissan pickup I previously drove

    They used to have the old DS in the sixties...

    That was an iconic car...

    When De Gaulle nearly got killed at the hands of the OAS , he always stipulated he only owed his life to the Citroen's hydraulic system allowing the car to continue with all tyres burst..

    Why do you respond to almost everything in this thread? 14 posts in the last few pages. And you never contribute an image.

    "I think what she has done with her hair is great, but she took it a step further with her dramatic razor thin eyebrows. One of those elements, without the other, would have made the whole look less effective.

    I also love how she plays with the contrast of tough but femme sexiness. Yes, she has an obvious punk sensibility, but she still shows a little bare shoulder, has some sparkle in her top and just the slightest touch of color on her lip.

    Well played young lady."

    Seriously, WTF?


    Maybe for a cyberpunk video game character?

    I would have imagined Cairo--with its rather Francophile aristocracy during the Farouk years--would have sophisticated shopping options. But then I suspect the Egyptians may also see themselves as more Arabic.

    Does he delete anything seriously critical or does everybody there really lap up everything that much? The only comments I read are on the most ridiculous pictures because it entertains me to watch people try to come up with compliments for some of the ridiculous things he posts.

    I've repeatedly tried to put critical comments on his blog, and not one has gone through. Even something reasoned and thoughtful--like saying the girl with the partially shaved head was not a look most would care for, and as for the thin eyebrows that is an unfortunate preference of many eastern European women--a vestige of earlier times for western European women that has no (thankfully) lost favor. In fact the over-tweezing these EE women do results in many of them eventually losing their eyebrows completely and having to pencil them in, which looks awful. I've seen many an older EE woman with the clownish over-makeup... To encourage this over-tweezing is criminal, in my mind. I feel badly for the poor teenage suburbanites in the U.S. who drink his kool aid... Scott has no idea what he is talking about sometimes.

    Of course, when I say "Great look! Love the (fill in the blank)!"--that gets posted immediately!

    Didn't know comments had to be approved before they are put in.

    I thought blog owner could delete comments once they are posted but never thought each comment would go to him for approval before getting posted

    Scott is still in marketing mode, IMHO. He only wants positive comments. He knows his stuff wouldn't stand up on its own without careful editing. He can have some good shots, but has frequent misses in my view...

    +1, every critical comment I have posted has been stopped at the gate and deleted, even if it was only mildly so, but every single "That looks great, thanks Scott!" has made it through quickly. The odd thing is that they're not even consistent. On that pink suit image, my comment saying in kind terms that it was horrible didn't make it through yet 2 other comments saying the exact same thing did. My guess is that he tries to weed out all clearly critical comments but isn't particularly good at it. Either that, or he must get hundreds of people hating them [​IMG]
    Agreed on the EE tweezing thing too, it's tragic.
