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,

    ^ I personally wouldn't rush patina, because then it isn't really patina. I know there is a member who was experimenting with a pair of AE shells by leaving them in direct sunlight. I can't remember the member, but browsing the past 2 or so weeks of the AE thread should find it as we were recently discussing it and he posted an update.

    Rest up, Mike. @mdubs
    There will be lots of time to shine up your backlog when you are better.

    That would be my Leeds. Really is more an experiment in changing the color rather than true patina. Nothing trumps actual time and wearing to create a beautiful shoe.

    Yes, this is true and I agree. I didn't feel like explaining all that, haha. I figured that would be clear if and when he found the discussion.

    Sometimes you need to start the week with a shot of whiskey. Specially if you have pneumonia MDubs it clears up congestion!

    Asking for thoughts on the Indy here is like asking the population of Italy how it feels about pasta. That said, cork is not the best -- see if LeatherSoul has any Ultimate Indys left or if Epaulet has any Innsbruck Indys left in your size. These are similar but have sturdy rubber commando soles which are more "al dente". (No offense meant.)
