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,

    Sounds like this may not be possible right away, but adding a suit or two to the rotation would help.

    Have you thought about using cedar hangers? Since you don't have much ventilation, maybe you could have a small table fan directed at the suit?

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll also look into these.

    I have 3 suits on rotation and will soon be adding a couple more. I've found an absolute perfect place to hang my suits outside where it gets direct and full breeze (no direct sunlight though), however doing so for a couple of hours yesterday didn't seem to reduce the smell. Tomorrow I'll try somewhere else outside with direct sunlight, if that fails then the next step is lightly applying some rubbing alcohol and hanging outside again. Failing that then I guess dry cleaning is the only step left unless anyone has any other suggestions?

    I am afraid that I will stick with burning them and starting again.

    Are you a pyromaniac?

    No, merely practical. There is little p[purpose in keeping unwearable garments.
