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.

    Xpost from gift exchange thread.
    _________________________________________

    This was my first time doing the gift exchange. I'm totally in from now on. Thanks to hans for taking charge.

    We were already PMing earlier today, but huge thanks to capnwes. Getting a box full of fully wearable/useable items was awesome.

    Some shirts (wearing the RRL now)

    Love these two so much. The sweater is Zegna Yachting and it's my new fave sweater by far.

    I posted about how I always wanted a Beavis & Butthead Tommy Pullmyfinger shirt when I was in middle school. I still randomly keep my eye out but haven't found one. Wes, bless his heart, also looked for one with no luck but found this instead. When I put it on last night, my wife smiled and rolled her eyes at me. That's means it's my new hangin around the house shirt, for a while.

    Broke these in today by cleaning about 3-4" of snow off my car.

    Last but not least, some made in Italy lowball glasses that showed up just in time. Cat broke one of my main whiskey glasses a week and a half ago and then I broke another a day or two later. Also, those coasters were made from that 1930s drive train belt (i think that's what the note said) that Nataku found when he was clearing out that barn this past summer. Wes did some magic and now they're my new coasters. My wife dug the shit out of these. Somehow, I was out of both whiskey and Scotch, so I had to test the glass out with some brandy. It worked.

    Again, thanks a ton wes. I truly appreciate every single item, including the handwritten notes. Merry Thriftmas, everyone.

    You have both done such an amazing job. There are close family members for whom I would struggle to buy something so perfectly thoughtful. That probably makes me a bad person. Anyway, I'm wishing I hadn't already posted my Thriftmas stuff, I can't compete with you guys!

    Ahh, that makes a lot more sense. Moth holes are expensive. $150 actually sounds reasonable for the work you describe!
    Glad you snagged those. I carried them around the store for a bit, but ended up leaving them because I've been terrible about listing things lately and am determined not to add to my backlog.
