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,

    Cambodia is not a particularly dangerous country.

    lol... not particularly... but it's certainly pretty sketchy, especially outside of PP. who knows, I don't know his lady but I wouldn't be comfortable with mine there alone.

    particularly - to a higher degree than is usual or average.

    When I searched "crime index" the top site listed was numbeo, so I will use it. Their Safety Index (sort of an inverse Crime Index) ranked Cambodia 32 out of 118 countries listed. They listed Cambodia as safer than Spain, Italy, Israel and France. I mention those four countries along with Cambodia because I have been to all five countries and I would concur that I felt even more comfortable in Cambodia than I did in the other, more developed, countries. I would not be at all uncomfortable with the thought of my wife or one of my daughters traveling alone in Cambodia.

    Not so much pissed off as bewildered, but I just searched for our crystal pattern to see if anyone had cyber Friday sales on it. Some eBay results came up, and almost all of them, once you add shipping, will cost more than just buying the glasses at Macy's.

    Yes, she is working for her cousin's non-profit out there. She will be there for 3 years and only coming back here and there. I will be going there here and there. It is her passion and it was a hard decision, but we are determined to make it work. Maybe I can get on the non-profit's board?

    FWIW, she has been there before volunteering for this non-profit. She is pretty familiar with the country at this point. Plus she has her cousin.

    Cambodia is still suffering from the scars of a tormented history...

    Where is she based from?/

    cool man... that's totally legit. I wasn't making any assumptions, but that's not at all like the typical "I'm going to Camboge on an adventure" scenario one often hears about. Having been there I can say it is utterly fantastic and I didn't have any reservations traveling there aside from a couple wacky late-night situations. I've certainly been in more dangerous and sketchy places so enjoy and have fun. It's a beautiful place and the food is incredible.

    Everything I have read names this as the reason why the people are so friendly.

    Dipshits who hold up the entire boarding process because they are completely flummoxed by the fact that their roadie-cased size carry-on won't fit in the overhead compartment.

    my personal wish is that the pilot of the plane could brake check the animals who unbuckle, stand, and open the storage bins to get their bags while still taxiing to the gate (with the seatbelt signs still on).

    they multiply exponentially when one person starts to unbuckle.

    it would be awesome to see the guy who can't wait for 2min (with everyone else in the plane) just eat it and have his luggage trample him while he falls face first into an armrest.

    According to reports, he wasn't the one driving. Him and the driver died in the explosion.

    He may have been the passenger renting out his Porsche for charity. Jesus Christ. This is terrible.
