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,

    I've had a pretty fucked up month, so haven't been up to posting any finds, but I have been out to the shops. And, when I put the highlights of that month into one post, it resembles the one-day haul of one of our thread all-stars. All of these are headed straight to teh Bay, if not already there.

    I'd keep an eye out on craigslist/ebay for used bags. I've bought a few used chrome bags and they're fine since they last forever.

    Yeah those were the indicators for me. Surprised TF is being faked, given how niche that market is.

    That is precisely why it is being faked. Most people won't suspect it of being counterfeit.
