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.

    oh man. i can't contact my family in the philippines now. and there are tweeted pictures of a bus/ferry terminal that are just destroyed (which is less than half a mile away from my house (with my parents and sister in it).

    jesus i'm really scared now, i didn't realize that it was going to be one of the strongest storms ever.

    Dunno. It must have been that right turn at Pismo Beach.

    Good training for when they reach middle age. :embar:

    pm me their cell number I'll try to call them up from here. hope they're alright.


    iirc the bugs bunny "wrong turn in albuquerque bit" was based on chuck jones' colleagues really getting lost in new mexico and ending up in the middle of nowhere so it became an inside joke.

    +++++

    ^thanks. we've got a Facebook call/text/skype brigade going with family and friends nearby (in cebu where there is still power/telephone/internet). but it looks like all of Leyte is out. its pretty much wait and see until things settle down. my wife's family is in a region thats historically protected from the major storms so they're all right and in contact.

    good.

    fwiw, disaster management is maybe the ONLY thing that's well managed here. they brought in soldiers to the different islands in the area the past day or so (including leyte) to do a forced evacuation of areas that are deemed at risk. I believe more than a million total were evacuated and sent to different shelters and stadiums and safer areas. from what I see in pics it really is an end of the world type of storm, and the damage it will leave tomorrow will be very huge.

    As previously mentioned (me thinks), I'm starting a new business, which means I have to deal with investors, their managers and hedge funds, at this point I want to smash my face in.

    I don't get how these people ever made any money, being so conservative, one investment fund manager told me yesterday "I've spend 3 weeks getting multiple investors on board, as I REALLY want this to happen, but they don't want to be trendsetters." WTF!!!! :brick:

    I knew there was I reason why, I've avoided investors with a passion in the past. :brick:

    Why?! Every morning I get on a train to go to work and theres that Vietnamese guy who is always on the phone with who knows who and he is just talking away while the whole car is silent. I hate him. I forgot my earphones today and it is very annoying.

    It's the same thing at grocery stores, public transit and walking the dog.

    Besides one who annoys the shit out of me, as she can only say negative things, I just smile and nod

    Those guys are being hit by the most powerful storm in recorded history while they're still recovering from a 7.1 earthquake?

    Really puts the bullshit we whine about here in perspective, doesn't it?
