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,

    Yuuuuup. Hunt Club/Sean John and RLPL are the mix-up that hits me the most, but that's super common. Greg Norman/Paul & Shark pisses me off so much though (esp. since I tend to really like Paul & Shark stuff).

    I witnessed the craziest thing I've ever seen in a thrift store today. As I walk in the store, a man was yelling at the manager about a 19" tube TV (read: non flat screen) that he bought two days ago that isn't working now. She would not let him return it. He then raises the TV to about eye level and then slams it on the floor screen first and walks out still screaming! It was soooo loud and glass and pieces of plastic flew everywhere. It was nuts.

    Also, these are available again. I sold them on that site but the buyer flaked on the payment. a bunch of you contacted me about them. Let me know if you're still interested. They are tagged as a size 9 G (grenson sizing) but they fill like a size 10 US.

    Crazy question, what do people do with these? Wear them???? The shirt in that first listing, does anyone even know what that dirt is? Maybe its cow dung from 1940?!? Is that SF approved?

    I'm coming to the unfortunate realization that I'm more like a size 8 for shoes than an 8.5

    I have a feeling that most of my next shoe related purchases are going to be insoles :/

    The PRL bench made in italy suede blutchers that I grabbed are slightly more beat up than the auction led me to believe, but they should be workable with insoles.

    On that note, anyone have any good rec for insoles?
