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,

    The uninterrupted window mullion on the inside should be a give-a-way. Since it is not, take a look at how the siding is made to cover the mechanism on the outside.

    Infact, they have a name for these fancy things, they're called shutters.

    That depends on whether the pudding is the proof or you are looking something on the pudding like the present In a kinder egg.
