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,

    Betimes my students record my lectures with an audio recording device. Well today I overheard a student playing back a recording to study for an exam. Turns out I talk like a gay pretty much sound just like Johnny Weir (figure skater).

    Have a big industry conference coming up in a couple weeks and our CEO just informed the sales and consulting staff that we will all be wearing hoodies and Converse at the booth/around the show...

    Fuck you, Zuckerberg,

    I wish. The Converse are "custom-branded" with our company logo, color scheme, etc.

    I really have no idea what they are thinking. I'm young enough that if I were an exceptionally lazy and tasteless asshole it's something I may wear, but I'm the youngest client-facing guy in our company by 15 years. So basically imagine a bunch of 45-55 year old guys walking around like homeless people.


    Jeans, of course. I'll have to hit the Gap for their finest pre-distressed to complete the look.

    That's so gay. I would never work for a company where I couldn't wear a suit.

    What adds insult to injury is that I know for a fact our CEO is a big bespoke customer. He has some really fantastic tweeds and soft-tailored suits that we've talked about before. I know he splits time on the Row and in Southern Italy, but we never got so far as to discuss makers.

    I'll be so pissed if that smug asshole is donning spalla camicia while I wallow in the K-Mart sales bin.

    My voicemail greeting sounds a little fruity but I can't be bothered to change it.

    L'Inc, I've noticed many of your comments have addressed the gay issue lately. Please know that SF is a safe place to explore.

    You are also welcome to share your preferred pronouns.

    Whenever I am on the tele with a person who's native tongue (language) is a form of Spanish they think I am a woman.

    Don't people realize once you put a god damned company logo on something that's supposed to be cool and rebellious, it's no longer cool and rebellious? Marketing people can be such idiots.

    I sell B2B enterprise security software focused around legacy applications. There's no branding or marketing in the world that can save that.
