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,

    yeah pretty close. my 1960 Lesley & Roberts tailcoat tux was from 16 st george st. hanover sq so they were next door neighbors it would seem. L&R was definitely in the SR club even then and in fact would relocate to the row sometime later (they're still there today iirc).

    that piece was amazing. i've copped other more recent SR but i doubt i'll see anything like that pop up again. the 60s-70s pieces are the ones to find, imo.

    This is exactly what happened. Tried the oils. Looked awesome for a couple hours, but when I checked them out again tonight it was back.

    Tried the magic eraser and... MAGIC.

    I'm not sure what's in those things, but I am glad they make them.

    Don't bring your science knowledge around here. It's clearly magic. It says so on the box.

    Limited time to thrift over the weekend and the results were not impressive. Still... a few decent things:

    Beat me to it, but it's important to note that the "sponge" itself is an abrasive polish. So what you're doing to those glasses is polishing off a layer of oxidation, or grime. I've never damaged anything with one, but it's possible you could clean the writing off the glasses if you are too aggressive.

    Sweet squares, bro.



    Is it worth picking up Argus C3 cameras? Doesn't seem like it, but maybe I'm missing something. Shop near my work had a bunch and a sweet looking Canon ae1 program.
