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 have the opportunity to choose whether or not I shall have steel inlays in the toes in my new shoes, but I wonder what the pros and cons are with it.

    Pro - If your gait leads to the very front of the sole getting worn down before the rest of the shoe, a steel toe-cap may slow the process down.

    Cons - You scratch wooden floors, and anything you rest your feet on. Grip at the toe is even worse than with plain leather.

    All in all, they have little to recommend themselves.
