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.

    This is the model number out of a pair of sneakers I own, Gucci uses a pretty distinct number 3 on ther model numbers and serial numbers in yheir bags and accessories. I could be wrong and open to others input on this

    Not an expert at all as I've only had one pair of sneakers and one pair of boots, but when I took the insoles out of both they had Gucci print inside of the shoe. I've seen fakes that did not have that, so perhaps that is a way to identify.

    Grabbed these polo shirts from a consignment store for thrift prices Friday afternoon with some Groupon + sale + another cheap item:

    Left to travel across Wisconsin to have my dad help me do some car repairs at price cost instead of the high labor costs here and decided some thrifting on the way down might help pay for things.

    Do you think that stamp by the signature shows that it has political importance? Thanks IMP

    Not Swedish, it's called krona not krone, but the Austrian Hungarian currency at the time was called krone (according to wiki)

    Haha, I zoomed in on the photos and came up with an answer. Continued reading only to find out that it had already been answered! It is stamped Austro-Hungarian, but written in Polish. The first lines mention Rymanów in Poland. I would have guessed taxes as well.

    @Doomsticks: I had the same thought...I had coffee and thought "Ahh, this sounds far more interesting than the other work I have to do in front of me. Yes, this suddenly takes priority."
