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.

    Thanks for checking it out. Turns out I can buy online and pick up in a few days at my local Best Buy store - didn't know BB stocked anything other than the one Sony TT I see every time I'm there. That'll make returns a snap if need be. Cool. Thanks!

    I can second. @Jompso reached out to me on my love of ties and offered the same thing, he'll send me a box, I pick out what I want, and I send the rest back. I don't know of too many others that would do such a thing.

    It came with the stock Audio-Technica AT91B cartridge. It may not be super-awesome, but it sounds pretty damned good to my ears.

    I also ordered the cork mat. I'm not at all sure whether that matters, but it looks cool. The good thing with Uturn is that the basic turntable is upgradable to higher end components if you so desire.

    My listening pleasure this morning is "Carpenters" (1971).

    I have NOT seen one a thrift. I saw one at an estate sale, but it was missing parts and they still wanted $150 for it. But, now that I know how well they work and how the repairs are fairly simple DIY, I will definitely keep my eye out for them!

    You could do something like this:

    Either make it your favorite team if you are a sports fan, or put something about the Seam Store. And you could have it say Sell Like a Champion Today or something similar.

    I always recommend that people NOT start vinyl collections. Don't waste your time and money with vinyl- it's an extremely inconvenient format that is a hassle to store, listen to and move. It won't really sound better unless you're getting mint copies of older records ($$$$$) and have a good sound system. Start off with a good stereo soundsystem.

    I'd like to do some taxidermy, but that got veto'd quick. My wife is completely against that. She actually catches bugs in the house to release them outside, unless it is bitter cold and freezing, then she lets me kill them quickly so they don't have to suffer by freezing to death. I call her Mahatma Holly

    i'm pretty curious about those 501s.

    they look completely unworn but i don't see any storage wear either?

    i'd think levi's would cough up $100k to get those if they believed them to be legit.

    remember that guy who found an enormous nugget on his property in gold country cali, and then tried selling the place for some stupid amount? and then it turned out when they tested the gold it was Australian? lol if it seems to good to be true it often is.

    write it down, i'm calling shenanigans on this.
