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 have an older cashmere sweater that is great quality--no pilling, soft--but has stretched out because of the loose weave. I would be much happier if it was a size smaller all around. If I put it in hot water will it felt up or just contract? What is the best way to shrink it and maintain its look?

    A very skilled dry cleaner or tailor who knows how to steam and hand press a sweater could probably do what you have in mind.
