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,

    Looks tasty.

    Finally got the flavor right on our favorite last night. Sure helps when you have all the ingredients.
    Seemed like it took hella long to prepare though. Would have been easier to drive 30 mins to the Thai place and just order some, lol.

    And note to self: Keep the fish sauce in the bottle, with the lid on, until it's time to use it. Damn that shit stinks.

    1,528 new posts?

    How many of those posts are gun-related, dead-horse-beating thrift-ethics-related, or can otherwise be categorized as unnecessary reading?

    We've been good little boys and girls recently if I remember correctly. Good finds in those posts as always.

    We had a girl once. She said something homophobic at one point so DM7 fought her and she never came back. Otherwise it's a total sausage fest in here as far as I know.

    Thrifted a brand new red Artisan model about 3 years ago. Gave it to my dad, who loves to bake. He never used it (saw it last week shoved in a corner and covered in dust with the manuals and such still in the bowl) and it slipped my mind he likes making the boxed mix brownies and such.... :plain:

    Cucinelli replaced stafford as the most found brand in thrift stores. Black Fleece suits suddenly became affordable. And people are starting to open their secret santas.

    That was a strange experience. She offered me a proxy for like 4 or 5 Zegna shirts then sent me an invoice for like $125. [​IMG]

    Ah man, you should have grabbed that to take home! It doesn't serve much purpose if you bake out of a box I suppose. Great for scratch.

    Haha, I would have if we didn't already have a while one my wife uses almost weekly that her mother got her for her birthday years ago. When we were over at my dad's place she saw it and said "Oh man! I want to trade!" as the Artisan model has the handle on the side of the mixing bowl and the mixing bowl is a little nicer. Might swap bowls one of these days. :)
