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,

    I need shelves or a bookcase type solution. I'm running out of space and want something simple yet aesthetically inoffensive. My ideal shelving solution would be the Vitsoe 606, but I have a feeling this would be out of my price range so I haven't even thought to give Moss a call about it (if anyone does know the pricing scheme, feel free to tell me). I also need to make sure that the shelves have plenty of vertical space. I have a bunch of huge, oversize art and comic books that won't fit anywhere. As of now I have most of them set up as if I'm displaying them in a bookstore and that's definitely counter-productive to my space situation. Any suggestions are welcome with open arms.

    If you're somewhat handy, I totally recommend grabbing some MDF (or plywood if you're a bit of a masochist and cant get veneered MDF) and building them yourself.

    I just finished a 94"x36" bookcase with a total cost of around $75. Gave it a flat black paintjob, so it looks great and unobtrusive.

    I think that's about as minimalist as it gets.
