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,

    Microwaving water for tea is shit. There's no excuse not to use a stovetop or electric kettle. Do so or go to starbucks.

    I have too many options and interests...betimes I wish life was a bit more clear-cut. Betimes I wish I was more boring and less ambitious. Maybe I should dull myself with psychiatric drugs and become a robot.

    I agree, but many offices don't have a stovetop.

    Most tend to have electrical outlets, into which an electric kettle can be plugged.

    But not different plugs? It seems your system was designed by committee.

    Electric kettles are illegal in many American jurisdictions. What many offices recommend is that you fill a cup with water, put your fingers into it, and then start moving your fingers around fast enough to where you speed up the water molecules. It's not ideal, but it works well enough in my experience.

    Speaking of professional football, the LA KISS uniforms have been unveiled too many flames on them.

    When I was a youngster, I always thought it was "Jack of all trades, master of krunk." But that doesn't make a lot of sense.
