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 think most have already seen my inventory. However, if you still want me to post some photos of my stuff, I will be glad to.

    More details of the Koji remakes of DG.

    I saw this shoe at Koji's work shop-I used it as a base for my current order with him:

    Of course, let's not forget Guild of Crafts, the first trial shoe, the second and the cool looking diplomas. I am still waiting for the third trial shoe, which should come next month.

    LC,
    Sadly, I cannot find any pictures of my Kleman's. Also, I had some cool pictures of a Japanese maker in Ginza-his name was Saion. He was definitely a contender, but I cannot find those pictures either at the moment.

    These are nice. Did you ask Koji to dip the eagle's beak so close to the tip?

    No, he just used the same last that he used for my boots, which resulted in the effect that you see.

    LC,

    Very astute. They are both finished "head and shoulders" above any of the rest who I have seen. And when it comes down to fine detail inspection, KS definitely wins the day.

    the waste on the KS is just awesome, i would love to see it in person.

    so are you just gonna be sticking with KS now?
