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.

    Namor and Thinkderm, with Vass, you can specify 1/4 size increments? Who knew...so If I am 43.5 in calf, I should go with 43.25 on my shell alt weins? Never heard of such a size so want to make sure I order correctly. Thanks in advance.

    Interesting points everyone, may see if Nick can help, as the only problem is rubbing on the last toe.

    you can't specify quarter sizing, but you can make one size slightly larger

    I saw some incredible plum and green museum lately. I wonder if that was old stock or something has changed?
