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.

    Good thing about the Olympics being in Britain is that the minimum age for sex is 16 and its OK as long as you can realistically think they are overage :D

    I'm beginning to understanding women's foil.

    I'd prefer them to just scream through their mask, I don't like it when they whip it off after every touch.

    I guess the air square is the international sign for, "Check the replay".

    What's with the US women's volleyball team? They're winning, but at least two of our girls are chubby. That is not what women's volleyball is all about.

    I watched it inbetween rounds of boxing. I'm glad DiFrancisca or whatever her name is won. The cheering of her opponent was ridiculous.

    Just saw this woman get smoked in the face by a handball.

    I really need to start looking up the rules to some of these sports.

    Yar that's the one. Although it looks like it happens regularly, they have three rotating in.

    They finally explained that only the goalie is allowed in the dark area in front of the goal. =)

    Close match, I'm not sure if I'm watching it on delay or not.

    I whine about it every Olympics but I am already fearing the hype over China's gold medal tally when at least half of them will be in totally BS sports like air pistol and archery, not too mention all their athletes who are probably too young to be competing or are probably using PEDs.

    Just as an aside, the 16 year old Chinese girl who the won the 400IM swam her last 50M faster than Ryan Lochte did in his 400IM and raced him basically even over 100M.

    Yeah right, China.
