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.

    Yes, I do have a small wrist- 6.5" around. Anything bigger than 36mm just looks silly on me. Im also not a fan of the big bling watch craze. I prefer to wear my watches rather than them wearing me. The watch may appear larger than 36mm due to the zoom on the camera.

    Below is my AP collection at its peak.

    Only 3 of these remain in my possession. 3 had to go due to little or no wear and the ever present need for hard cash. [​IMG]

    I never really wanted a nato strap, but I may have to rethink it. It looks really good with that particular watch.

    I've never seen this combination before (the solid grey NATO isn't all that common) but it looks VERY sharp. I never would've thought to put it together, but now I want a Speedy so I can put it on the same strap. Nice job!

    tell me about it.. my wrist is just 6". I haven't seen ANYONE with a wrist that small. Its hard to find watches that fit me well.

    The left sided three are still with me. I found the Volcano fun but too "colourful", the Shaq too big and I had no need for the regatta timer on the Alinghi Polaris.

    Excellent choices, although I would have kept the Alinghi instead of the two tone ROO, for a little bit of movement diversity but I understand your decision.
