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,

    didn't it look like they were swimming in virulent diarrhea?? I don't think they were swimming in the Thames or anything like that, but couldn't they have found some cleaner water anywhere around...

    I still haven't wrapped my mind around this. That's 6.2 miles of swimming. Holy hell.

    Yeah when I checked in they had already been at it for close to 2 hours. I can't even imagine.

    They should turn that event into goal-oriented bonanza, by kidnapping family members of competitors, and giving them only a certain amount of time to live before they're enveloped by the tide. It would make it heaps dramatic, and NBC would be able to cover more inspiring stories.

    Hmmm -- when I was in university (admittedly very, very long ago) that sport was rife with dykes.

    And this is a problem how?

    My preference is the track body, but the hockey girls radiate athleticism without being overdone. And it seems to be a cute sport with those little sticks.

    Not sure how to characterize the problem other than that it meant I slept with the basketball players. :)

    Rhythmic gymnastics looks like something out of Cirque du Soleil

    Jesus christ. How heartbreaking would it be to lose a 10km swim by .4 of a second? Wow.

    Why isn't Ashton Eaton one of the megahyped athletes in this Olympics? He's dominant in his event (and considering that his event is decathalon, that's not a small deal), has a world record, he's handsome and charming. He should be a huge star.
