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.

    No laughing matter, Bwana. You aver that I am hirsutely-challenged in the pectoral
    region. Next meet-up I'll wear an open-neck shirt to put the lie to your surmise.

    A great time as always , gentlemen. Gus, thanks for the excellent choice--
    we all benefit from your decades of bar-hopping in the City. The next time
    I go there, and I will, I'll take care not to park atop Russian Hill. Matt and I ascended
    together to what I believe was Base Camp #2 . He then turned for his home.
    I continued the climb, luckily assisted by a couple of Sherpas who happened
    by. I believe they were wearing Chan.

    Do you know how much new footage has been added since last April?
    The Castro is a parking nightmare.

    If I ever need to park in North Beach, the block of the library seems to have at least a couple spots open. Dunno why.

    I don't have any quantitative measure. Based on the list of new clips highlighted in Rick's email, and judging on the amount on new material in the previous LL shows....maybe 25-33% new stuff?

    We still get to yell shit at the screen though, right? That's my favourite part.

    I'll buy you a drink if you yell "I HATE SAN FRANCISCO, TORONTO FOREVER!"

    But just a drink. La Fin du Monde, perhaps.

    I thought I had posted a thank you, G, but I can't find it. Thanks for setting it up. Great place. And the conversations keep getting better.

    I agree that an SWD-crossover event would be great. Wonder if the Tailor Stitch guys stll would like to host us. I'll ask. They carry some made in SF jeans, I believe.

    Why don't you check into it and let me know. By the way, there is a very good story in the current 7X7 magazine on men's fashion in San Francisco. It covers Tailor Stitch, Tellason and two other local brands. Seems the "made in San Francisco" fashion scene is thriving but in a SW&D kind of way.

    It's actually Taylor Stitch, not Tailor. Great brand. Love their shirts. :)

    HI Aaron,

    Are any of of the SF crowd getting together in conjunction with the screening on 12/8?
    I haven't gotten my ticket yet. Nor may I be able to based on the Web ticketing page.
    Nevertheless I thought I'd check w/ you before I tried to get a ticket.

    Regards,

    Roger

    I'm attending with the leftette. I believe Parker said he may try to bring the Parkette.
