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.

    I stopped by Wilkes and they said Franco would be coming on the 14th of April also to Palo Alto. More than likely will make it there.

    My lone pair. Agreed that they are some of the most comfortable shoes I own. They are indisputably my absolute favorite pair of shoes.

    ^^^I like that antique brown finish. I believe Marco was wearing a pair of double monks with that same finish last time I met him.

    On their round-toe models Bontoni seems to offer great Italian flair without gimmicks, which hamper the likes of Bettanin&Venturi. Malat's pair reminded me of G&G's offerings, but I'm sure Bontoni was making stitched caps before the English came along.

    Thought I'd chime in with my only pair (with more hopefully coming soon).

    P.S. I've worn mine to death and am now getting close to needing a resole. Has anyone had good luck finding someone to resole and keep it as close to original as possible? I was thinking B.Nelson as they've done some great work for me in the past.
