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,

    Yeah I'm right there with you. I just don't like the risk of shredding the cork with the lever/Rabbit style corkscrew I have. If I were nitpicking I'd say my truetap has a shitty blade, and I don't like two stage but in all practicality it works just fine. I just wanted to get a Laguiole I guess.

    ^ this. Though I did recently buy an ah-so, as I've been getting a few older wines lately.

    The ah-so is the only way to go for me... New wines, old wines, it doesn't matter. It's pretty much all I use. So easy and fast, once you get the hang of it, and especially good for long or old corks.

    Just scored a fucking barely used 2013 Eurocave V-264w 3 zone Eurotheque wine fridge for $450!

    Took a chance and bought it sight unseen. So stoked.
