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,

    Sitting in the airport waiting for a flight as I write and just discovered the P.J. O'Rourke book I bought at Goodwill yesterday for the trip is a signed first edition. Not worth a lot but still pretty cool for 50 cents.

    But alas. The thread has turned into a where do I get a good Mannequin and how much can I sell this jacket for, which I often find myself taking part in as well. Damn capitalism.

    Your jacket looks like it had a really drunk night where it's holding the metal stand crying "HOLD ME" while waving around a white iPhone charger furiously.

    I decided to stop by a spot out in the burbs on my way in this morning. I've never found much of anything at this spot but I figured it would be my last time out here, so what the hell.

    I thought you were going to tell us your thrifted that Jetta or Passat, can't tell the year or model by that angle. But I might actually prefer the bike. [​IMG]

    The details make all the difference!

    Brioni isn't the only fakes you have to watch out for in Bangkok. I would suggest using the pinch test on the ladies from there as well; if you feel an extra layer, it might not be canvas!

    I forgot to throw my last Bangkok in the freezer and got bedbugs. Remember to freeze your Bangkok for at least 48 hours to avoid this!

    I can't recall how many scenes I'm in and what episodes in which they appear but if you see any scene with Zoe Barnes in the newsroom of "The Washington Herald", I'm somewhere in the scene.

    Aha dig, you were in cards? Sweet as hell. Did they fill you in on what was going on, or just blindly make you walk around? Any other shows?
