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.

    I hardly dare post in this thread, but I'm actually quite pleased with how my new shoebox is turning out. It's not quite finished yet, but nearly.

    Living space (with just enough book space):

    Not exactly an "SF crib" unless Tokyo Slim wants to try to take over the lease, but I thought that this story from the NY Times was worth posting here. Essentially, there's a family living in a two-story, pyramid-shaped apartment at the top of the Smith Tower in Seattle: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/21/ga...me&ref=general The place looks pretty damned cool - views to die for, including a small "lighthouse" right at the top of the structure, reached by a vertical tunnel. Here are some photos to accompany the article: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/201...n/21WHOss.html
    I actually wrote about this two years ago. This is how far ahead of the curve I am. http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...8&postcount=89

    Furniture and lighting. There are probably dozens of homes in that area filled with Nakashima slowly being stripped and sold off at Solo/Rago once the children discover what their parents' furniture is worth. While the house needs some colour and life, you'd be crazy not to buy that furniture. My guess is an extra 200K.

    GDL, your new weekend getaway?

    Ob, nice place - very calming palette.

    Thanks for the kind words. Ironically, probably the two best aspects of the place are the ones not shown: The balcony and the location. The former because it's still in use as a dumping place for rubble, plaster and tiles, the latter... well, you never know who's hanging around this place... [​IMG]

    Loving it! I went from a 3000 square foot bungalow with finished walk-up basement and dormer attic to my 650 square-foot loft. I can't imagine going bigger now. My loft functions perfectly for me. I love living small...gives me time and money to devote to other things.

    Thank you.

    It's weird, I started out looking for something bigger with a guest bedroom... but all the apartments I looked at like that felt 'meh'. This one, even though it was looking a bit rough at the edges, immediately gave me the feeling of 'I could live here'. Plus, going small meant I could afford a riverside location in the centre of the city. [​IMG]

    Thanks. I've actually moved to the historic centre of beautiful Haarlem (just west of Amsterdam). The apartment has a terrific location. [​IMG]

    I used to spend a lot of time at DeLift and Studio on the Grote Markt.

    Ohh and Fidels...

    That would be considered spacious in Tokyo.

    It's a great town. My walk to the station in the morning now takes me across the river Spaarne at the prettiest part, alongside the St. Bavo cathedral (its spire bathed in the morning sun) and on to de Grote Markt.

    All things are relative of course...

    No, you get the honour of knowing you were right. Far more valued on sf. [​IMG]

    0b5cur1ty: Love the place! Makes my ~200 sq ft University-owned studio apartment look really crappy. Probably not anything of interest here either, I have yellow floors.
