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.

    how did a canuker rip the gimp suit?

    ++++++

    teenage kid in the front of our friday's trail ride group fell off a ridge almost 15 feet high. kid was being a kid, didn't see the turn until it was too late. when I got there his dad (who was with us) and some guys were tying a splint and we eventually brought them out. lucky for him all he got was a broken wrist, but still that was pretty terrifying.

    Thanks guys. I don't know the kids or their families but obviously the connection is felt. I usually spend weekends in my hometown and stuff like this makes your average sprawling suburb feel like a hamlet.

    The major metro newspaper's editor lives a few doors down from my parents and she just posted the front page for tomorrow. Her kid is 17 and knew these young folks very well. So sad.

    sorry Connie, that is horrible



    I had a problem last week that required a remedy of eating more fiber. so I spent the weekend eating a lot of fiber. apperantly, a little too much fibder for the delecate balance that is my digestive system. this morning I pooped out stuff that might very well have been stuck to the walls of my guts since Regan was president. this wasn't really the effect I was looking for. I now feel weak.

    fuck.

    My rent check is going to bounce this month -- how embarrassing ...

    I totally fucked up my cash flows this month and now I'm just barely short on cash after all my bills and credit card expenses were paid for. Definitely not going to liquidate any of my stocks to pay for this so I guess I'll have to suck it up and get hit with the bounce fees.

    Dammit!

    I'm not.

    I got overzealous and bought more shares of stock than I should have :laugh:

    Isn't that sort of the point of the credit card...you don't *have* to pay it all

    Seems better than bouncing your rent check.

    Yeah.. well all my bills get posted before my rent check and it wasn't until now that I just realized my rent was going to bounce.. otherwise I would have done as you suggested.

    Oh well. Gotta pay a $100 fee but that's about it. If only I had bought one less share of AAPL.. dammit. I guess the silver lining in this scenario is that the ROI on my reckless investing covers the $100 penalty and more.

    Why wouldn't you sell a share of something? Trading fees are less than $100...

    In the future, learn to keep a cash buffer that will pay at least 1 month's rent+utilities+CC. Hell--start charging yourself an overdraft fee if you ever drop below that (move your "fee" into savings or donate it to a charity..or send it to me) if it will keep you in line.

    No shit. Putting every available penny into the market is a pretty bad idea.
