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,

    Don't count them out too soon. I sold a pair of AE Yorks in size 13 AAA at full BIN price to one of the editors of King of the Hill last year. You never know who is looking.

    I'd much rather have your snow problems. It was literally 72 here yesterday, and it was in the high 60s last week. I think the high today is 70. I hate it.

    Yes, and yes.



    Same here, this is the warmest winter as far as I can recall. Mid December, no snow yet save for a slight flurry that didn't amount to anything and temps in the 50's.

    I'm starting to despise south fl weather. I think it's gotta be the most overrated weather in the country. 8.5 months out of the year it's muggy, unbearably hot and raining. It limits what you can wear, that's for sure.

    Your dad is one lucky guy! I can only hope that someday my offspring will surprise me with an insane amount of recent, quality tailored clothing.

    From our deck last night when the storm ended. That's a ruler stuck in the snow there in the middle of the picture. There's about 1-1 1/2" of snow that blew around as well when the winds picked up.

    You're making me jealous. At least I can, hopefully, wear warm clothes when I go visit the family for Christmas.

    Got it. I didn't see a size tag, but putting it on it feels like a medium. I'll post measurements tonight. It is available.

    Just put in the time and be patient. The hauls you see are the rarity, most people here put in some serious time to be "lucky" when the right donation hits the rack at the perfect time. There are also a ton of flippers in South Florida. I am not sure if more than any other area of the country, but definitely a lot. Any "maybe" item is gone half a day later.
