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.

    Got mine today.
    Will open it up and take pictures tonight!

    Thanks GraphicNovelty :D




    I'm wondering if my swap got his yet?
    Spacepope, should I sent you a copy of my shipping receipt? There wasn't a tracking number. I shipped it awhile back, but I can scan the receipt if needed.
    I'm assuming if he hasn't received it already, it's coming soon.

    Glad my package got sorted out. I had to send it out early because I have been traveling a lot.

    I came home to my package from Oboy. Here is what was in it:

    A folding bag from Nau. I assume this goes on a bike? I will probably keep it in my car because I don't ride a bike.

    Here was what was inside. A pencil and pad from Field Notes and a band aid. I like to use these to keep notes about where I eat and stay when I am traveling.

    This is what I am really excited about, some beans from Water Avenue Coffee. It was the first thing I smelled when I opened the package. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I will this weekend.

    Thanks. I will definitely be participating next year.

    Sweet. Glad you like it. The bag is from Nau, and it is defintely not for the bike! Just meant to carry your assorted small gear, like headphones, USB cords, passport, etc. If you travel a lot, it may end up being a handy "organizer" type thing.

    The pencils were a custom job from my work (a creative studio focused on copy writing). The embossing reads: WRITE NO PLANS FOR RETREAT. Solid advice for the year, I think.

    Water Ave Coffee is right across the street from my office. Come have a coffee any time you make it to Portland (this goes for all of you).


    And, umm, sorry about the band aid...I had put some things in it to see how it well it folded when it was a little full. I took them all out before I loaded it for you, but I guess the band-aid just slipped out of the random assortment of stuff :embar:

    It sucks when people receive gifts and not post pics.

    Cautiously optimistic that I will still receive something.

    I sent mine last Saturday, USPS. No idea why it still isn't there but I just checked the tracking info and it was in Vegas yesterday, says expected delivery by today though. I can PM you the number if you want, sorry.

    ^No worries dude. It's traveling quite a distance, so it's perfectly understandable. But now that I know where it's coming from, I'm more eager to receive it :satisfied:

    g trans went all out, I'm in awe.

    Nice paper on the box, even!

    [​IMG]

    Inside there is another, smaller box.

    [​IMG]

    and inside that box is a beer koozie,

    [​IMG]

    girl gender non-specific scout cookies,

    [​IMG]

    and chocolate!

    [​IMG]


    Next in the larger box, g trans feeds my ever worsening caffeine addiction with single-serving Vietnamese coffee. Excellent, excellent.

    [​IMG]

    Beneath that lies a Schneider lookbook

    [​IMG]

    and this hefty volume on Margiela.

    [​IMG]


    Everything was topped with this (fantastic) photo, taken by the man himself

    [​IMG]

    with a lovely note on the back.

    [​IMG]


    Thanks so much! This is all really fantastic, I couldn't be happier.

    Glad you like it! The coffee is awesome with a bit of condensed milk to give it a crazy nice sweet/bitter taste. The chocolate bar is one of the best I've had, so hope you enjoy eating/drinking/reading all that!!!
