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,

    Striped ties and business suits isn't the greatest combination imo (neat printeds are just better), but this is by no means a poor ensemble.

    I understand. It seems so de rigueur in the U.S. to wear stripes with suits but no other country seems to approve.

    What? You mean in Britain where school, club and regimental ties originated, they don't approve wearing with suits?

    Britain doesn't count. You're basically the same as us except without the good sense to throw off hereditary monarchy. [​IMG]

    The stripes of the suit are too close together and too thin for my taste. I'd consider selling it and replacing it with wider spaced chalk stripes. The iteration you went with was better.

    I don't care for wide stripes, generally speaking. To be honest, this is the only kind of pinstripe suit I would own. I understand that it isn't liked by all, though.

    Btw, I agree that our system is messed up, but I wouldn't be holding the British as the model for effective government these days. [​IMG]
