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,

    [Refuses to quote the far too many posts on the diversion]

    As your attorney, I advise against this line of argument.

    Besides, it detracts from the fact that, in a single week, I've found almost thirty Zegna shirts. EDIT: Oh yeah, and SEVEN RLPL ITEMS: 5 ties, 2 shirts!

    [Insert humblebrag gif here, and hopefully re-rail the thread]

    I'm thinking the double whammy of Halloween and Christmas traffic in my neck of the woods, plus I imagine a lot of people wait until after the holidays to do donation runs.

    All of the 50% off days don't help either, brings out the volume flippers (or just volume buyers) in droves and seems to drive in a lot of students around here as well who usually buy garbage but occasionally scoop some nice stuff by accident.

    Close, but not quite. It was started when a guy who made a fairly standard complaint about perceived unequal treatment in the workplace - something we have all been guilty of at one point or another, regardless of the field - was greeted with a lengthy screed about the uselessness of young journalists and the intricacies of the modern world of journalism. There was a 2 hour gap between ATLJon's initial post and your novella, with little fanfare.

    I actually prefer "outrightly sarcastic twit."

    OK, I'll just go ahead and say it straight: You're a straight-up prick. Seriously.

    After getting halfway through the unfinished novel and forgetting it in a rental car, that's on my to-do list. The stuff he never finished, never polished, was so far beyond brilliant--I found myself re-reading paragraphs as I went along just to re-savor them.

    Luckily the people in this thread are not complete nutcases.

    Imagine if there exists an overly sensitive but sadistic person on here who plans a long term vengeance when he feels that some fellow violated his honor. Months later, he manufactures a trade scenario just to obtain the residential address of that one person whom dared to offend him :devil:

    Little bit tipsy so best to ignore this drunkard ..........

    :rotflmao: I just wanted to say that I woke up this morning and had a bunch of posts to catch up on and it was fairly entertaining. Congrats to all of you that found some cool stuff. Also, FaceofBoh, love that look.
    Happy birthday, GMMcL! Awesome finds and congrats on the pile of RLPL you've recently found. If you decide to let go of any of those RLPL ties, get at me! :)
    Your entire post was awesome and had some really cool things in it. Well done. I rather like the color of that jacket, whenever you get measurements, let me know!
    Wow, that's an incredible score! Hopefully your day got a bit better after that!

    Thanks for posting it though. It makes for a good deterrent for others (ie: ME) trying it. :hide:

    Generally there is a quartermaster's stamp inside the sleeve at the armpit with the date and time. Usually it is in the left sleeve.


    It's even more to think about when you are drying your face when you realize another dude was drying his junk with that same towel.

    They are 44 or 45 and in very good condition, I will check for brand and post later. I think I might shorten them/cut off like 5 cm, they reach all the way to the knee now.

    I didn't know Dual was a brand to look for, cool, thx

    J/k welcome to the club [​IMG] As far as GOOD ones, can't really say yet. The ones I've been to occasionally have something decent, but usually a lot of junk to sift through. Persistence is the key.

    I'm not from that area but experiences tell me you can find gold anywhere. You just have to dig through all the dirt. Go search where all the rich areas are. Check the thrift stores in those areas. Chances of you finding something nice will be higher, in theory.

    Also, generally speaking, folks don't usually reveal their honey holes to just anyone, let along strangers...[​IMG]

    I think I read somewhere that thing you really want to watch out for is the remote control. Supposedly the most germ laden thing in a hotel room. I've heard of someone - not me ; ) - who brings their own ziplock bag to put it in.

    I think this is what we're all really worried about.
