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,

    THANKS!!!






    Thank you so much for the VFG link. They're great and I need to poke around there. The oldest I've seen before this one is the blue HT label (like the black one at the VFG) which I think is late 50s.

    As for the maker of the pants, no special knowledge needed:

    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Reminds me of dinner with friends a few years ago at a Thai restaurant in Genova. Still pissed because a knife fight broke out and a guy got stabbed before we ordered dessert. Polizia made us leave. Restaurant owner was outside making sure everybody paid.

    :happy: Which one? I've been a huge fan since about ninth grade, when I discovered Parliament of Whores.

    I feel I have mentioned this elsewhere... :paranoia:

    I find this to be far more offensive, and breaking with tradition, than listing the price you paid for an item.

    I agree HoC is great, but Dexter was pretty terrible IMO.

    We obviously do not see eye to eye as I would say that was one of the worst. Everybody's tastes are different, I spose.

    But I do agree, Yvonne Strahovski <3

    I was think about this last night as I was falling asleep (yes I'm a loser). :D

    Anyone know anything about this? Is there a contact point? I could imagine them getting inundated by request for how old grandpa's jacket is.
