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,

    Lol, we are more than happy to host SF members. Our lives have been enriched with all the wonderful folks we've meet on this thread, not to mention I've gained 3 wardrobe full of men's wear! Seriously, we don't mind being hosts to thread members given we think/feel we could trust you ie. we have to get to know you through PM, Skype, and etc. (Wow, that last sentence sounded kinda awkward...)[​IMG]

    But for reals though, if any members are thinking about coming to SF for vacation or whatever, PM me! Thread regulars only...Juss say'n...I'm still waiting for Wes and his wife...
    You should have seen me! I've been refreshing my browsers literally like ever 10 minutes hoping to find someone who will post that elusive WTaps Chester jacket!!! I will pay $$$ for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BIG BIG MISTAKE! Everyone does this, and everyone winds up with a big pile of shit they need to re-donate. It is a much better idea to learn before you start buying lots of stuff. At the minimum get the eBay app and use that to get an idea of somethings value (even if not for flipping, it will give you an idea of desireable brands). 20 pages deep? There are 2766 pages, at the rate you are reading, President Clinton will be swearing in by the time you catch up!

    Good to know, might be a little pre-emptive but I'm going to SF sometiime in March and was hoping to meet up with any locals/do several thrift runs. I'll be in touch as the time comes.

    Also while we are the subject, if anyone finds themselves in Boston, hit me up. Always down to grab a beer!

    No. They are very common and kind of a joke.

    ^^I have yet to find a NON-custom VV tie. Every one I've found is either for an event or a school.
