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,

    No, toscano_adottato got it right. I ran it through a translator and it is Michael. Michelle translates as Michelle. Michael as Michele

    Sorry, I should have explained myself. Correct, Michele=Michael, however, that garment was made by MICHELLE due to the garment tag IIRC. She took over the business from her father in the 1990's. It is still Michele Charchedi tailoring, but MICHELLE now operates the business and I am not even sure they are still in business.

    EDIT: Actually, I just read she is setting up studio sessions at Boyd's.

    Oh, Ok. So the garment carries the original name....It is fairly old (dated Dec. '89) . I noticed in my searches that the company was changed to just "M. Carchedi", I assume due to the difference in names.

    Um, link to thread? I can't find one with "audiophile" as a thread title that seems to be the main thread.

    I hate reading...more of a math/engineering guy. That said, started "BRINGING HOME THE BIRKIN" tonight a few hours ago and 1/2 way done. Anyone who is part of this thread will probably really enjoy the book. Thanks Spoo!
