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.

    Whenever I wear pink pants or shorts there is someone what says "Are those supposed to be pink or did you just mess up trying to wash them?"

    I admit that I have never seen pink or Nantucket Red pants or shorts on a man and thought they looked even halfway decent. I wear a lot of pink, but never as pants.

    I think I get pretty close, maybe 45% decent. If I had a fuller head of hair, I think I'd clear 50%.

    I really hope Im not carrying the baldness gene.

    I see kids my age whose hairlines have clearly started receding and it freaks me out.

    There's always the Hair Club for Men.

    When I used to get my hair cut, my hair stylist told me that the guys who'd gotten new hair at Hair Club for Men were the worst customers because they would shamelessly hit on her. For some reason, that has always seemed funny to me.

    Mine started when I was 18. Ain't no big thang, as it's been holding steady since I was 25 or so. The bald spot on the crown is the one to worry about.

    I don't think I follow what you mean in the bolded part. If your hairline recedes like a lot of men's, then you end up with the horseshoe, with no hair or very little hair on the top of your head. (That is my case.) That seems like something to worry about too.

    My iPhone hasn't been able to receive a data connection since I got back from Canada yesterday. AT&T was no help, so I'm having to venture to downtown Chicago to an apple store in hopes they can figure it out. It's 4 days out of the 1 year warranty and I really hope they don't try to fuck me over.

    My girlfriends grandma had a minor stroke. Nothing is really minor when someone is as elderly as she is. Already can't walk, hardly talks. So the GF had to fly over to say hi (and probably goodbye).

    Sad sad sad. I wanted to go with her but I've only met her grandma twice while she lived here, I felt like the visit should be a little more reserved for family. and we'd have to get everything arranged for us to be gone for four days, during the time of 10pm when she booked the flight and 7am when it took off (we have three dogs that can't stay indoors all the time since they chew, or outdoors since it's 110* outside), plus $1400 for the two tickets. So I stayed behind.

    Edit: On top of that, I've got her good friend trying to one up me. She's disliked me ever since we started dating. Just sent me a text asking what the issue was (since I had to state there was an event we were going to tonight that she can't attend now). After I explained and stated I had stayed behind, she said, "Well I'll go ahead and tell her if she wants me there, I'll hop on a flight." Wtf.

    ^i'm sorry about that. but on a side note

    sometimes going to funerals/major elderly sicknesses as the supportive boyfriend puts you in a position to get a ton of sex. I always remembered being in that position throughout collage and the girlfriends are totally in the mood to have sex. funeral/major sickness sex is awesome.

    True. But unfortunately, I'm definitely not in a position to be out of work for a few days, drop $1400 on the tkts, or get someone to take care of the dogs that quickly. SUCKS. Best I could do is pay for her ticket and clean the house as a surprise for her. Maybe that'll get the sex.

    Windows 8 is so mind-blowingly shitty. I never wanted to go back to Apple, but I don't see how I have much of a choice. I've given it a month and it's just completely worthless.

    Windows Phone is all right, I will stick with Win 7 on my laptop though..., no touch screen here. Did you get a Surface or update a old one (i.e. no touch screen), or bought a new laptop

    I started shaving my head when I was 17. It's not so bad but I have a good head shape.

    it's ok if your hairline starts receding... mine's receded a tad bit since graduating college but due to precautionary measures (not rogaine or propecia yet), it's kept the recession to a minimum. I haven't developed the horseshoe yet

    you have options now anyway to mitigate it. it takes a bit more work but meh.

    I have a lustrous, glorious mane. Everyone in my family has kept a full head of hair until death. :slayer:

    Good luck. From what you've shared here about your publications, service, and teaching, it sounds like you'll have an easy case for granting tenure. I hope it turns out that way.
