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.

    Cheers,

    Plunkett wouldn't join the Raiders until 1978. Love that he went ahead and signed right on the Lombardi Trophy anyways lol

    By my count, this poster is signed by 6 NFL Hall of Famers and 2 future Hall of Famers. Plunkett also won the Heisman at Stanford.

    Will post the rest of yesterdays haul later. This was probably the best piece. Available before it goes to ebay if you really want it.

    Wool, angora, cashgora blend. Tagged 52L but more like a 42R. Working cuffs, dual vents.

    Passed on a cashmere brooks brothers. Shame it was black [​IMG] Forgot to grab a picture but I did find a Grafton cashmere jacket that's fairly nice and a couple pairs of the xxx Zegna pants. I suspect they're suit pants so I'll check back in for the jackets but at 7$ I thought why not.

    Also a funny comic I saw today lol

    While I'm not sure if you're serious or not, I do sometimes wonder if the English professors who frequent this thread silently judge all of my misplaced commas and poor sentence structure. :happy:

    Anyone who is upset by inappropriate comma placement and poor sentence structure probably doesn't spend much time browsing internet forums. You regularly post incredible finds and describe them with insight and attention to detail. I'm sure even the most hardened copy editor would appreciate your posts.

    Someone replied to an e-mail I sent the other day at work. When I re-read my original message I noticed that it had about 6 unnecessary commas. I saw that I had sent it at 7:45am and hadn't had coffee yet. Stuff like: "Thanks, for getting in touch. Could you stop by, tomorrow?" Super embarrassing.

    I'm no English professor, but my bachelor's degree is in English. A pet peeve of mine is when people write "your" instead of "you're". I understand this is a casual forum and I shouldn't be a grammar nazi, but one cannot simply overlook that. [​IMG]
