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,

    Have you looked at Roland Murphy's watches (RGM)? There are a few there that are worth a look IMO

    Those are great watches -- American made! [​IMG] I especially like the special edition deck watches he did for the EOT folks...

    The picture does not do it justice, especially since it was snapped from my camera phone.

    Sad day today - my company's firewall is now blocking photobucket as an unauthorized website so I cannot see any pictures uploaded on photobucket nor can I upload or post pictures from there... [​IMG]

    If you're equipped for WiFi you can search out a free/unsecured signal to circumvent the restrictions.

    Wondering what you guys think of this line of Seiko watches? I've always been tempted, but they ain't cheap...

    I take it that you don't like Murphy's watches? Seems to provoke a whole mix of feelings there...

    I like the Breitling but they always look a shade "busy" to me in terms of the hash marks. I like the caramel candies. [​IMG]

    Breitlings have never been subtle. This one is about 25 years old. As for the latest models; well it's hard to find a subtle one.[​IMG]

    I have never understood how to read them or what all those tachometer numbers mean.

    Oh, that's easy. They're used for things like navigation (in directions/degrees), determining fuel efficiency, determining speed over a quarter-mile, determining the distance of artillary, determining when the next full solar eclipse will be, and divining the date of your ultimate doooooooooom!
