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 so absolutely perfect. It's going to go up on the wall in my office once we move into our new place. 1993 poster for the Tour DuPont, autographed by a bunch of riders. The only one I have identified yet is Raul Alcala, who won the race that year.

    That's awesome Fueco!

    Yeah, I think Suited is on to something here, impuntura. That Kiton is supppeeeerrrr defective, so I'll give you double what you paid for it, $30. And throw in a bag of Carmel Apple suckers. Deal?

    Can't compete with vicuña, but I had a good day volume-wise. Highlights:


    Skeety skeet skeet! And hat tip to @Fueco on the Paradise Found. Would have passed this up if not for the thread.

    Listen.I dont like you. more specifically the type of person you are. A Negative Nelly, a Debbie Downer...whatever. Im not the only one who pointed this out but you have a habit of finding the negative in shit. Not only that but you compound it by hiding behind parables that are not as clever as you think they are. I would have more respect if you would just be blunt and say thats shit or whatnot. Generally I wouldnt give a fuck if you actually contributed. If Spoo or Eazy or the Capn criticized sonething of mine thats cool because they post as many other do.you just sit from the sidelines and sling shit. And youre surprised some of it lands on you? Now youre gonna pontificate with a story about how you and buddy went on a fishing trip or mushroom picking in the woods ome other nonsense and how it relates. I could go on but I have more important things to do,like have a drink in my very expensive very nice sport coat.

    Guys I know we're all excited about vicuna, but I am even more excited thinking about how much sexy time this Mario Batali cookbook is going to lead to.

    Oh Garage Sale season is upon us!
    This is the first year I know what I'm doing and can spot the good stuff. Oh my gosh things are cheap cheap cheap, almost free. Only in America. I spent $11 and came back with about 6 lovely fodder pieces plus a Vornado, a solid 3 light floor lamp, and 2 books on women's fashion. Also included was this beauty, a first:

    Just look at that handmade tag. I've never seen that at a regular sale before. Everything at that sale was tagged that way. Super fun.

    Now to learn about lightly cleaning 90's caps.....

    Happy Weekend All!
