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 dumb of me. I thought that specifying "Ships to United States" would block international buyers. Obviously I'm not an experienced eBayer. It seems that anyone at PayPal should be able to tell I'm being scammed, though I'm pretty sure I'm out $100.

    Yea, I ride my bike an average of 16 miles a day so I think that's as big as they're going to get. :D By the way, what are your thoughts on MCM Lane stuff? I've been holding onto this walnut? desk by them and I'm debating what to do with it. It's got the tapered legs, dove tails etc.

    you know whats funny,i was discussing Lane with a store owner the other day.
    Lane stuff is huuuugely popular in denmark,i think its beacuse they have so much danish stuff (duh) that when they see something different they appreciate it.here in NA not so much,post a pic i will tell you how much i would sell it for.

    ps riding is a fast twitch exercise,try weights (slow twitch) and they will grow ,toe raises with a light weight on your shoulder

    Yeah Eazy you clearly did it for a reason, but the whole thing kind of looks a bit old man-ish. Get thee some chinos or cords.

    Here you go, the thing has been sitting in my basement for a couple months so it needs a good cleaning and possibly to be restored, but I didn't want to fuck with it before getting a second opinion. Thanks in advance.

    That's kind of what I was going for, that and it's almost 90 degrees and not yet noon. :D Good thing I left off the sock garters then.

    Sorry for the quad post, I would have worn loafers with no socks but I'm still on the hunt for those non slip pads.
