1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    According to my guy who has met these people, they have several storage lockers worth of stuff. The culprit posts on Craigslist in that area pretty frequently.

    I figured it was worth asking the thread since the regulars I don't trust were insistent they're fake and hovering around waiting for me to leave.

    The Sam Simon auction starts tomorrow at noon ET...lots of stuff from his shows (Taxi, Cheers, The Simpsons etc), plus he was apparently something of a pen collector - they've got Mont Blanc, Waterman, Parker...bunch of vintage animation stuff, sports / boxing stuff, a few Cartier watches, etc.

    Wish those extra STP codes worked on clearance items, that'd be an insane deal.

    I posted a pic of these boots a few weeks when I found them at an estate sale.

    Since then, I have done a little research and found out some really cool stuff.

    Spoilered for non history buffs:



    These are custom made boots made by Dehner boots. Dehner has been around for decades and the company is a premier maker of Riding Boots as well as Law Enforcement boots, motorcycle boots, etc.

    I contacted them and they must have some very complete records because they could tell me from the number in the boots when they were made and who ordered them.

    These boots were made in 1940. Seriously. As in PRE WWII and 75 freaking years ago. They were Ordered by the University of Oklahoma and made for the ROTC program. Now, in 1940, we still had calvary and we were also really developing the tank corps as well as using Motorcyles. So, these were ordered for ROTC use probably for any of these uses.

    They are very cool and the style and design is still made by Dehner today.

    Here are some more pics.
