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.

    E Thrift came in - can't believe I snagged this for $9.99 plus shipping :slayer:

    Really wish it fit me - alas, it's a "L" (or 44/46 prob)

    To 9.99 and I guess you were the bidder.

    Yeah, I did the same thing. I dropped the ball when it was $19.99.. would have been more than happy to pick it up for that.

    It's awesome in person, and totally deserves more than the cell phone pictures that the seller and I have both taken

    I highly recommend a night at the opera to anyone who hasn't been. These days operas have subtitles, so you don't miss out on anything by not speaking the language.

    i'd also heartily recommend ANYTHING Mozart. i've never heard Seraglio but i've seen The Magic Flute (and listened to it about 1000 times) and Don Giovanni and with the titles and stage action it's great. somebody near ATL should hop on those tix and take a date.

    Thursday, Friday, Saturday.

    Not to be a downer in the thread but 15 years ago today I watched some really fucked up shit happen with my own eyes. Its hard to believe that it was that long ago but it still feels like yesterday. That first plane flew right over my head as I stood on the corner of 5th Avenue that morning and I'll never forget saying to my friend just before it crashed "thats weird, whens the last time you saw a plane in the city?" After that, I walked over to my fathers office on Lexington Avenue and went up to see him in his office - where he was on the phone with his best friend who worked for Cantor Fitzgeraldā€¦.as the second plane hit and the line went dead (as did his friend). We left the office and scrambled to find an ATM and took out as much money as we could. Then we couldnt make any phone calls because the cell towers were down, so we waited 45 minutes amidst multiple fist fights trying to get to a pay phone to call my mother to tell her we were alright. We walked 5 miles across the 59th street bridge from midtown Manhattan into Queens and got a ride from someone from there. I got as far as Forest Hills, to my ex-girlfriends house, where I collapsed and cried for the next 4 or 5 hours, then finally made by way back to Long Island.

    Make sure you take a second today to appreciate how lucky we are to be on this side of the ground and to have the freedom to be able to do and talk about things like this that we love.

    Locals will recognize these. They had been at this store for 6 months or so and were priced ridiculously. They had dropped them several time but no one bit. The manager was at the showcase when I was there and I asked when they were going to drop them again. He said to make him an offer. I ended up with all three for where they had the cheapest one priced. All gator. The RLPLs have sterling buckles.

    The vibskov cardigan is insane, as every other vibskov piece...the gitman is nice and I wish it fit me, but its too big.. The pants are just a pair of whyred (swedish brand) that I was hoping to use this winter.. But too big also.
