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,

    Me neither, hopefully were talking a matter of weeks at this point.

    Then I can start my countdown for my Malverns.

    What do you use if you want it to remain the same color--burgundy?

    I had a feeling they were as I vaguely remember your post, but that's why I figured I would ask just to make sure they were from odd stock. Great way to get a marvelous pair of shoes. Look forward to seeing your pictures of their maiden voyage, Congrats!!!

    I think I use mahogany (Saphir) for my cream and I use black wax polish. Works well for me.

    Can someone explain the difference between an adelaide and a reverse adelaide? Skoak has both incoming according to the website.

    Skaok/ other SF members: I'm looking to pick up the beautiful Carmina jodhpurs, and looking for sizing advice. I'm a wide 9.5-10 US - 9 inca fit quite well - should go with 9 in Forest, or with 9.5 for extra room?

    An Adelaide has the throat inset, whereas the reverse Adelaide has the throat sewn on the top. A very subtle difference.

    Adelaides usually have a cap toe, but previous reverse Adelaides have been plain toe.

    Leaves, would I be right in assuming this will be the case again?

    Thanks Roger, I figured it was something with the throat. So even though this has a plain toe, the inset throat makes it a reverse, right?

    It's only been a bit over a month since my MTO Galway order was placed but impatience is getting the better of me and I just wish they were here already.

    I'm doing better than normal. I have mostly put them out of my mind as I feel like the rush of MTO's is going to create to a bit of a logistical bottle neck. Tomorrow I might feel differently though ;)

    I just ordered more EGs to try and stem the impatience. It hasn't worked.

    My apologies if this was rather rude for a 1st post in a thread. This seems to be a wonderful service and I was just excited about a potential buy, hope I didn't cause any offense...
