1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Thanks Bengal, I had perused the info on that link prior to posting but they doesn't seem to have pictures of real shoes.

    As "Shoes explained part II", an explanation on how to recognize quality in shoes would be nice.

    Andrew, do you have a picture of a shoe cut perpendicularly to the feather? I'd like to see exactly how the feather is created out of the insole.

    a. harris:just a quick complement on your excellent "shoe review". Concise, informative and very well written. Bravo! I, myself, have written 8 books so I know from whence I speak. Not so easy to produce a piece on what could have been a bit of a dry topic, yet you have managed to bring this subject to life. thank you, dpw

    It must have taken loads of time to prepare this article. It's great to be made aware of it. Thank you.

    Glad someone dug this up. Shouldn't it be pinned?
