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.

    Aww MAN! I need to try some of that whale bacon ASAP. How was it?

    It was quite good, actually! A little bit tough and chewy, but very flavorful!

    Is whale bacon belly meat, or is it just called that because of some purported resemblance to pork bacon in taste or appearance?

    That's a very good question. As far as I could tell, it was simply prepared differently than the non-bacon whale sushi... perhaps it was "baconized" to give it more flavor? Excellent question that has inspired me to conduct further research on the subject...

    The best sushi I've had, for my palate, was at a little place in Hawaii that was full of Japanese people. I LOVED those little red-tipped clam pieces. Don't remember the name of the restaurant, though...

    Wednesday I took my wife back to the little place that just opened right up the road from us. I know it may be sacrilege to the stuck up purists, but I got their version of a "mexican roll" - crab, shrimp, spicy sauce, and a half dozen other flavorings. I don't know if I'd really consider it sushi, but it was darn tasty.

    Shit you know I knew someone would ask about that...
    Well, I just thought it tasted bitter and waxy and the color is somewhat like earwax (that and I was making a partial refference to Futurama)
