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.

    Epaulet CXL PTBs today. Might be a little damp when I leave work so I grabbed the waterlocks.

    I have a collection of about 30 pair of Alden and realized I consistently only wear certain ones so I am slowly thinning the herd. Of the boots I am keeping, I've decided that I'm going to wear them into the ground, especially my whiskey Indy boots. I now wear them for working in the yard, trouncing threw the mud, climbing over logs and rocks, etc. (about the only situation I am planning to not wear them in is in deep snow or times when there is a lot of salt on the ground). However I still clean them off and buff them out each evening and put my shoe trees in them.

    I put them through the motions that they were built for but still want to maintain them.

    With the upcoming rain, government falling to pieces, and a little work today...
    I think the Commando sole Chamois Indy is in order today.

    RTP, Buy those boots, deal with the consequences later. Hide them for a while, use one of DocAlden's visa gift cards, whatever it takes.

    That is one school of thought, yet another is to ship those 8ds to Louisiana for some extra Christmas cash.
