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.

    Hiya Fellas!

    I have to do a non-work related PowerPoint tomorrow on how to do something or how to train for something...

    and of course I'm doing my quick presentation on the Mac Method.

    I'm sure the room will be full of eye rollers, but maybe I'll break through with someone out there...ya never know.

    Congratulations! I am genuinely excited for you, as odd is that is, being that I don't know you IRL. I do recall giving you some piece of frivolous advice, that must have been it.

    Perhaps this is shoe karma at work. Since you were noble and did not go behind your wife's back to get that used pair of NST boots from eBay, you were rewarded with this other grail at an insanely unbeatable price.

    Todays frivolous piece of advice, inspired by your good fortune is: If you think that you will be denied permission, don't ask for it.

    Seriously though, I understand what you are saying about setting a good example. If the world had more parents like you, there would be less dishonest people among us.

    If your wife is unhappy about this purchase, just give her the background on the situation, about how you were encouraged to buy the eBay pair behind her back, and that you decided to do the right thing instead. She will surely agree at that point, that you do indeed deserve these.

    Thanks for the well wishes gents. I should clarify... I sagged the last Ravello NST in my size. I'm not sure what they have available in other sizes. Congrats to you too brp2; enjoy your whiskey PTBs!

    curious if any of the other ravello NST recipients this week noticed any tiger striping that previous ravello NST (in my experience, the boot atleast) have had? I just opened the pair I received today and they had the striping on one shoe on the outer side of the vamp. even if they fit me, I'd likely return (as I did with the ravello NST boot I bought from shoemart last year)

    atleast the cigar indys I also received look good. 1 out of 2 aint bad [​IMG]

    Much gratitude Bakes! Somehow I suspect $460 will seem like a bargain. Time to turn on some serious charm! [​IMG]

    Thank you my friend!
    Looks like it. Still wondering where in the hell these so-called irregulars were coming from?? Thanks DV!

    Fate works in strange ways. While I still want those NST, plaza-lasted color 8 boots, I'm certain I would have snagged these ravello NSTs first, especially at this price. Thank you very much my friend!
