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,

    One of my friends (who hails from Atlanta, GA) once asked me if I had a pin. I was completely confused why the hell would I have a pin? (He meant pen.)

    Also, the "Southern man" laughs like Rosco P. Coltrane "kew-kew-kew-kew!"

    This reminds me. I hate when people say "pitcher" when they mean "picture."

    I know a lot of people who say IN-surance (accent on first syllable). I don't think that sounds good even a little bit, but who am I to judge?

    You should try putting the accent on the second syllable (in-SUR-ance) see how it feels.

    I hate when people pronounce marry/merry/Mary the exact same. They're all different.

    I say them all the same because they are the same (of pronunciation). :slayer:

    When I am in a crowded mall (such as today, for example), I get dizzy and lightheaded and nauseated. I dislike that quite a bit. Wonder if I have a syndrome?

    I am experiencing an intense craving for donuts or other delishus pastries.

    I just dumped a bottle of drain cleaner in my bathroom sink- the kind that clears "slow drains". It did not.

    You should use a plunger. :teach:

    I am trying to purchase a men's pea coat in the color of plum you'd think I was looking for a lunar bicycle or something (not to be found).
