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,

    Yessir. Some really good stuff in there today. Lucky if I get 1 vote -- and that assumes I actually vote for myself.

    :spam: VOAT FOR ME! :spam:

    EDIT: Oh, and thanks, Deadboy all, for the complements and thumbs!

    Spoo should return the "sartorial steps" he withdrew following the multi-stripe debacle for that outfit. You'll get a vote from me.

    This had me immediately considering bailing on work this afternoon for a thrift adventure, except that all the stores around me have largely quit on sport coats and suits for the summer. It isnt the same hunting for shirts, pants, and shoes. So I guess I'll actually get some work done instead [​IMG]

    FTFY. And thanks!



    TJX (or Marshalls; can't recall), which counts. I do not buy pre-owned socks, tees or other unmentionables.

    :rotflmao:

    Thanks, bros. :fistbump: I can assure you the coat is way short (I won't even have to get the sleeves altered, super-rare), so no one's missing out. :D

    Now someone find me some cool stuff to send Nataku. I'm trying to bundle up some cool stuff, but it's all coming up short. (What do I know about 60's prog rock? Nothing!)


    ANDRO, what you find, homie?
