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.

    Ah - vintage case - horse of a different color. And I Googled style 4 to see what they were, and can understand your dilemma! I've only got one vintage case, but it's for clip-on's so probably too small (and includes the clip-on's, so too expensive).

    Which case are we looking for again?

    Can anyone explain why this one went for $50? Just an anomaly?

    Could you educate us on what you know about Moncler? I have about 6 different pieces that all "feel" quality, which is why I picked them up although I knew they were faked more than women's breasts in beverly hills. True story...I used to live there.

    If you REALLY want to know how Nordstrom survives on their return policy then PM me but I'm not going to open a can of worms here. I only know b/c I befriended a manager there and we would talk about policies, strategies, and etc re: the store/brand. Lets just say it used to be VERY LENIENT and now you can get push back DEPENDING on how you answer the question(s).

    Gentlemen, let's not discuss the past. Let us move forward to the future, to new endeavors, to fresh pastures and great expanses of used goods that we may or may not return to their original retail stores for 10,000,000% profit.

    Ouch. Normally it's the other way around. I started subscribing to a [LEGAL] proxy service and it's made everything crazy. Not sure when it's allowed to be broadcast here or not. Screenshot of what it was: [​IMG] Edit: Longer version, but may work. [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    Woke up today.
    Got some coffee.
    Went upstairs to see how the builders were doing.
    Decided to move some stuff out of their way.
    Took a chair downstairs.
    Turned 35 years old on the way down.
    Fell down stairs.
    Twisted my ankle.
    Went up and grabbed another chair.
    Fell down the fucking stairs again.
    Told builder his stairs were faulty.
    Hid in the house the rest of the day in shame.
    Went to dinner.
    Restaurant had a sign that the kitchen was closed for construction.
    WTF.
    Went to another restaurant.
    Wore this....

    I seem to have the thrift-related dreams when I take a Tylenol PM, but I had a really weird one a few weeks ago when I was sick and guzzling Nyquil...somehow I was backstage at an Elton John concert (I have never been to one, no desire to go to one, UNLESS he only did songs from the Benny & The Jets / Saturday Night-era AND wore the same costumes from the 70's - then I'd consider it). On this occasion, he asked me to hold his coat, and I noticed it was a white leather Dior Homme, and I said "Wow, nice coat!" He went on to say that he wore a new coat every night and had them shipped back home to England each day (no idea if he lives there or not), and he wore Gucci, Dior, Loro Piana, Kiton, Brioni, Tom Ford, etc. I told him I'd be happy to take them off his hands, and he was super appreciative - said it would save him a ton in shipping costs and so on. So he paid my expenses to go on tour with him and gave me his leather coat each night after the show. And that's the sort of thing that happens in my dreams.

    Took another sip of the potion, hit the three wheel motion.
