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,

    I think that makes it better. Your enemies will know you mean business and they won't fuck with you.

    I just blasted through 300+ posts, and was shocked when no one jumped on this:

    @SpooPoker:

    Probably already decided on it, but I'd go for it. If I can't get killed by something and afford to tie up the investment, I love the thrill of a "risk." It's relatively low risk in this game, but it's like playing poker for a few bucks. Not a lot to win necessarily (thought could certainly treat you right on a larger volume), but it's nice to have something at stake.

    Note: Not exactly my attitude towards real investment necessarily, but this clothing thing that is done on this thread.

    Just a few quick finds, down and dirty... This one "feels" NWOT... [​IMG] [​IMG] One side of the Etro scarf is unrolled, but I couldn't leave it for .50. [​IMG] B&L Ray-Ban. Paid €1, but they're missing the pin that holds the frame together for that lens. They were previously glued. Any ideas on a cheap repair? Can a place that sells glasses do this? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I love listening to Pavarotti, Sinatra was also new. Hadn't heard Rusted Root for, what, 20 years? Why not. [​IMG]

    It is easy and normal for any optical shop to fix missing screws. Should be a quick and easy fix

    Any idea if this is legit? No tags and some water stains but for 3 bucks it's sweet if it's a bootleg.

    Great to know! I'll run them by and update the thread with the experience/price. Appreciate the advice, I didn't want to look like an idiot walking in and asking, though I would have still gone through with that. One of my unique talents is the ability to make someone else feel stupid, even if I'm the idiot in a given situation.


    I'm not SpooPoker, but I'm willing to say real, depending on tags available. When I say "real," I mean the silk at least has a solid chance. It looks like the selvedge edge from part of a panel of GV silk. I can't say that it's not a homemade job, however. Again, I'll let Spoo guide you, but those are my thoughts.
