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,

    Which SD, Brian? If San Diego, there is a modicum of thrifting to be had. I'm confident that I'm not blowing up someone's honey hole by saying that it can be worth the few minutes it takes to go through the GW of La Jolla. Great brands, but they do know it.

    Edit: And I just read your sentence again, and note the tense used, so nm.

    I saw those at the Saks Outlet on Monday at a steep discount. They ran too narrow for my feet. I was heartbroken.

    I still don't fully understand how to tell shell vs. other leathers. Are these shell?
