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,

    Try not to be so ambitious in your caloric deficit. The less body fat you have the longer it takes to get even lower. Also walking or other low intensity aerobic exercises really help. Also really helps to build the right habit over feeling guilty over not being disciplined enough.

    Or you could semi bulk like me. Basically still get leaner. Just much more slowly

    Thanks @indesertum. Much appreciated. I got to 9% two years ago but I was working out twice a day while on sabbatical. I'm looking for new motivation. Will try your tips.

    Nice! I didn't enjoy being under 10%. Sucked the fun out of food and exercise for me. I realized I didn't care that much

    I'm guessing you haven't had to deal with the credit card processing industry, then. :fu:

    Was told tonight how buff I'm looking by a complete stranger, pretty hot, about 20 years younger than me. I'm no where near 10% body fat.

    Swagger. :slayer:

    Not up by me. We have Culvers which is good enough, I guess.

    I pretty much always believe companies have the interests of their consumers at heart--even if people rag on them and say they don't. HOWEVER, US telecoms is one of times I just don't. Partly because...


    There are other countries where there are actual monopolies and the service beats the ever-living shit out of the US. Better networks, actual customer service, lower prices, functioning infrastructure, not having to buy your phone from a provider... it really is embarrassing how bad we have it.

    Apparently Verizon and Comcast were offering massive discounts to areas that were about to receive google fiber just to stay competitive. Can't wait

    Verizon TV/Internet rights in California was sold to Frontier (who?) and the transfer sucked. People losing internet/blackouts for weeks, etc

    Actual monopolies tend to have significant oversight from the government. It's the de facto ones that get you in trouble.

    I just got an instagram from a friend out suit shopping with her husband. He's in an ill fitting OTR suit and her caption is, "With so and so getting a Kingsman bespoke suit."

    The salesman probably bespoke to her that her husband should get that Kingsman suit.

    Betimes people say things to me like "How you doing, my friend?" but the person isn't what I would actually call a friend. When that happens I say "We are not friends you are being presumchess probably want to sell me Amway soap or a vacuum or something."
