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.

    Our own, dear youngScholar has graduated from grad school and is moving on to up, to Seattle.

    So to give him a proper goodbye, Master of Meetups and Other Delights Binge has suggested that we together next Monday, July 18, at 6:30 pm for some Memphis Minnies BBQ and beers at Toronado.

    As always, new or old, all are welcome.

    Pls. reply here if you can attend.

    I'll try, but flying the next morning. Given how these tend to end up, though, I wonder about the wisdom... :D

    Motorcycle + Haight = :)
    You can too!

    A couple regulars have pm'd that they'll be here too. Hints: One just moved here and hates SF. And the other is a local, who hates SF, in part.

    Binge and YoungScholar: Dinner then drinks, no?

    "Motorcycle+ Haight": I'm too chicken to ride a motorcycle. It did it once in Italy wearing shorts. Burnt my leg on the exhaust.

    As much as I hate to constantly miss these great meet-ups with my conflicting work schedule, working graveyard shift; I can happily say that after mid August, i get to return to a normal life on day shift. So, I look forward to joining up again in the future.

    Can I assume this is not a coat and tie event with beer and bbq (sudden death for any tie or shirt?)

    Yeah. Look for us first in Memphis Minnies and if you don't see us, pop across the street and check Toronado.

    Great to see everyone tonight, and welcome to NAMOR.

    YoungScholar, best of luck on you move to the Emerald City, I'll be sure to send you a note when I'm in town next. I hope the move goes well and that you get settled-in quickly.

    Missed this one but SF in SF meetups happen pretty frequently and I'm due.
    Good luck in Seattle YS. It was a pleasure meeting you at past events.
    I am curious as to what everyone was wearing in the lower Haight while eating BBQ and drinking at the Toronado. Sounds like it could have been a WAYWRN MC Casual challenge IRL.

    Thanks for coming everyone. You were mentioned and missed, Salad, as were many others.

    Don't forget to let us know when you're back in town, YS.
