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.

    Exciting, congrats. I'm looking at a week from today, best case scenario. Should be fun . . . as with many things, we could not have made more different choices. LOL

    I'm sure that is imitating something and can't think what...an old Heuer of some sort?

    Good that your impulses are indulged elsewhere, I feel.

    Reminiscent of the Heuer Autavia.

    It's imitating a vintage Hamilton of the same name, from 1971:

    Congrats, foo! That's awesome.

    I guess you must have pulled off the frequently-discussed (but rarely-executed) two-fer.

    We joke a lot around here about "just buying both", but it's not every day that somebody really does it.


    Re: straps, I have had good experiences with Panatime, (rubber and calf) but earlier this year I overpaid for an OEM Jules Verne (tan sueded gator) and have not regretted it one bit.

    As for the Tank, I would think Camille Fournet would be pricey, but hard to beat.

    Next week is promising some excellent pron in copious quantities LOL...

    +1 on Panatime - always some good deals too. And the JV is one of the loveliest things I've ever held in my hand - GO have an equally fabulous equivalent in grey.
