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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    I used to be a huge fan of ska and reggae back in the day...

    Augustus Pablo
    Peter Tosh
    Desmond Dekker
    The Skatalites
    Steel Pulse
    Eek A Mouse
    The Ethiopians
    Alton Ellis
    Toots and The Maytals

    The list could go on.

    I actually saw Toots a few years ago. He was amazing... Dancing around and doing splits even at his old age. During a pause, my buddy yells out a request, "Pomps and Pride!" He tilts his head and thinks for a minute... "Ok," he says, and they blast into the song. It was an awesome night.

    ... Wait, how could I forget Laurel Aitken. Just too many artists to name.

    I really like the somewhat eccentric Brit Finley Quaye and especially his second album Vanguard. That one was a true masterpiece and definitely one of the best recent reggae albums I've listened to.

    Otherwise I second the recommendation for Horace Andy.

    Toots and the Maytals "Johnny Coolman" came on as I got on the bike at the gym this morning. Started the day out right!
