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.

    Bar exam is in less than two weeks now, so it is crunch time!

    Thanks all around guys! Fortunately, TX is a bit easier than LA.

    I am loving all this Rolex blue... that DJ / TOG action is sweet! I forgot that you had a DJ Frills.

    Also, in the spirit of the thread, I tend to be fairly one-minded in my hypotheticals :slayer:

    thanks!

    Oyster is how they refer to their cases, as they were some of, if not the, first to make a truly water resistant watch to deep levels, so they call it an oyster. Perpetual just refers to the self winding movement, something that Rolex improved upon in wristwatches, but did not invent.

    Oyster refers to their waterproofing. perpetual, I'm not entirely sure, but I think it just refers to their "perpetually" winding automatic movements. I could be totally wrong though.
