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.

    Down 60 pounds since I quit my job Jan 2013. Just about to break 200 for the first time in a long time.

    We've always eaten pretty healthy foods at home, but there are a few changes that have helped.

    1. I don't sit at a desk all day like at my job, or in my original pre-gentlemancave setup. I made an effort to lay out my process so I spend at least 70% of my time not-seated.
    2. I don't have co-workers who want to go out to lunch after I already ate what I packed.
    3. There is not constantly another dozen donuts or danish tray by my coffee maker at home.
    4. I eat breakfast every day, never really made time for that before.
    5. Corrected a Vitamin D deficiency.
    6. I go to yoga with Mahatma once a week. It's not your typical class though. It's Yin, mostly seated deep stretching, rather than balance.

    Fucks sake, Spoo.

    Spoo has given me the motivation to get out there and work for what I want in life. I haven't had that drive for at least a year, so it's damn refreshing to get it back again. Im looking forward to the next year and see what comes of it, thanks to Spoo for being Spoo.

    Thank you [@]Cj52racers[/@ ]for the personal Grail! 1985 model Snap-T. This is from the first year of this style jacket.

    So yeah, that's two serious personal grails I've come into today. The Bose Sound System III is a nice bonus.

    I think if anything it would raise the value of the old stuff. I haven't seen anything new yet, but I'm sure it sucks compared to the Polo Sport you want.



    You're a gent. This makes me very happy. You can do anything if you put your mind to it.


    I was running late, having too much fun driving. I drove out east and hit up a shop I rarely go to, so boom.


    Suck it. lol



    I lol'ed :lol:

    Suns down, just had a spirited drive where I passed a cop at 90 and he gave me a thumbs up (WTF) and a good (unintentional) thrift run. Settling down with a glass of red, its still 55 degrees out, gonna have a friend over and fire up the queue.

    Feeling good Louis.

    But quick and dirty, 8 NWOT Trafalgar croc belts, all size 36, probably NA unless I owe you a favor ;)

    Haven't gone out in a week.

    These were the finds from 2 stops a couple weeks ago that I never got to taking pictures of. Love it when dry cleaners dump clothes that don't get picked up!

    Everything avail for now.

    I recently picked this up at a thrift store. I was wondering if I could get some information on it? Pattern, approximate date of manufacture, size. I see it is a 45/55. Bigger than a 44 smaller than 46? Any details or information on this jacket would be greatly appreciated.

    Auction tonight and there is a pair of realistic Mach two speakers with grilles. Should I be trying to get them? I don't know squat about them. I'm going to try to test them.

    EDIT. Just tested and works great!
