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.

    This is how it happens. You have to commit and be willing to sacrifice a high-four-figure outfit.

    People who navigate or stand in crowded spaces oblivious to the fact they put on a backpack at some point earlier in the day.

    I was just at a BBQ joint and these assholes just sat at a table for like 20 minutes after they were done eating with zero regard for people standing around waiting for a table.

    Along this line why do so many people figure the perfect place to stop is always in the middle of a busy entry way?

    was it a phone call? live person or recording? did you take the opportunity to go full 'unrepentant criminal'? there's nothing like a scam to sharpen those role-playing chops.

    We had a recording on our answering machine a couple of weeks ago from the IRS. It told us to press 1 to pay our outstanding tax debt, or press 2 to have a warrant issued for our arrest. I felt sad that I was not able to take the call in person and press 2.

    That sounds like a phone scam.

    "Press 1 to enter social security number. Press 2 to have arrest warrant issued."

    Oh, it was definitely a phone scam. I figured that was a given.

    It didn't help that the guy had a pretty heavy Indian accent and didn't have great English grammar. It also doesn't help that I'm a tax lawyer and have at least a small inkling of how the IRS actually works. :D

    It was a robotic voicemail. Two in one day. I don't answer numbers I don't recognize anymore thanks to Rachel from cardholder services.

    I often get calls from energy companies, who want to sell me green electricity. As soon as they start talking about wind power, I start talking about how nuclear is better.

    I made one girl change her mind about the green credentials of wind power.

    The model for the hair products I use was just at the cafe. She left too quickly for me to ask her for free products though.

    Mostly tax planning for high-net-worth folks and small/medium-sized businesses. I do a lot of estate/trust work and business structuring as well.

    Seriously, I know.


    Cool stuff. I toyed with the idea of getting into that when I was in college.
