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,

    *sigh* Day starts at 5:30am tomorrow and ends about 8pm.

    Good news is I'm giving myself Friday off.

    apparently I'm getting old. I just threw out my hip. I always used to think this was funny.

    Thanks for all of the condolences yesterday about my grandmother, folks. I knew the last time I saw her was going to be the last. She was very old and not having fun like she used to anymore. I know she is at rest now, which in a weird way is comforting.

    That is not a bad thought at all.

    LowerCaseG says "thanks!" He's been a trooper. Colds usually bother him much, but this one has been pretty bad. Still, aside from not sleeping well this weekend, he's been in good spirits, despite obviously not feeling great. I just hope he shakes it soon. The big plans this weekend all revolve around his birthday party, so I'd like him to be at 100%.


    If you think it's bad in the general population, try having a kid. I walked into my son's daycare yesterday, and it sounded like I was in a TB ward with all the coughing.


    Thanks, dude. I'm doing my best to keep everything at bay. I just want to get through the weekend without coming down with something. I mean, I don't want to get sick at all, but the priority is making it until after the weekend.

    I hope the full-on medication assault gets you feeling better!

    Fucking spammers. One-third of the threads on the front page of GC right now are deleted spam threads.

    I don't understand spam. Who clicks on this stuff? I mean, you would think that if it wasn't worth it they wouldn't do it? Or would they?

    I think part of the point these days is to get the link on as many pages as possible to increase their Google profile.

    have they figured out the new system? iirc, when it was launched, there was very minimal spam.


    i imagine, they are automated and generated all over the web, and all kinds of forums, little or no distinctions. and on the whole, its probably worth it for them, however annoying the vast majority of the world finds it. no different than telemarketers.

    Both of those are true.

    Very few people actually click on the links but the cost of posting them is pretty low so you might get some wins.
    Getting your links on a well ranked site increases your own sites links which makes it more likely that your crap comes up in a google search result and some moron buys from you.

    This is part of the reason google's search results have been getting crappier...

    But who ever buys from vendors with either these kinds of reputations?

    My gf was telling me about how she values honesty above all else and how I should never lie to her. So we were talking later, and she asked me if I had ever had sex with a ladyboy... Now she has the nerve to be upset at me.

    Women... who needs them?

    That was probably the most quintessential Eason post ever.
