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.

    WOW....that Gerstner box is pretty awesome!

    I just received a very cool birthday gift from one of my friends:

    He made me this!

    It's pretty genius in the fact you can get a good shine and some down force from the dowel rods that are used...like this:

    That's probably the most thoughtful gift I've received in a long time. He knows I'm a shoe nut and his wife said he's just enabling me. I opted for a pecan stain.

    What do you guys think?

    I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that I'm going to have to give up my Blackbird Creamery boots and find a new pair of black shell boots. I love the boots, but they are just too small.

    Any recommendations for something very similar? I like the commando sole for the Seattle weather, and would like Barrie or Grant for the last.

    Love the pop of color with the laces here! I am hopeful to be receiving a Whiskey PTB sometime around the 1st of the year and can only hope they look as good as yours.

    Thanks rydenfan. Mine have commando sole, I find these easy to wear considering whiskey can be less versatile than other colors.

    Don L, these are "go to" shoes, and you always make them look outstanding.
