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,

    ok i have a vague understanding that thos pink is not held in the highest regard, but hear me out.

    i picked up a Pink shirt (blue with thin white vertical stripes) for a song at the thrift store...everything fits except the sleeves are way too short. a little wear around the collar, as well.

    i'm not a fan of short sleeved shirts. a little too 'barney miller' for my taste.

    - make some kind of avante garde/punk statement? (sleeveless? sew on new sleeves in contrasting color?)

    - cannibalize the fabric? (pillows? patches? jacket lining? xmas stockings?)

    - eBay?

    anyone have any favorite uses for shirts of such condition?

    Yep, roll the sleeves up and wear it untucked.

    sounds good, although i will need to get the tails shortened...it would look like a nightshirt as-is.
