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,

    There are lots of advice out there on seasoning de Buyers. I am experimenting with this one, which seems to be working well so far (have not tried eggs/fish yet):

    Cowgirl Creamery Red Hawk. Possibly the finest washed rind cheese I've ever had. Could be a bit stronger but overall it's unbelievably delicious

    I honestly have seen fresh morels at most once in my life at markets in Germany.

    I live in Connecticut. The morels are from Oregon. Quite sandy right now (had to rinse in about 8 changes of water). Otherwise, very delicious.

    Every Friday at ~5pm I get a great email (serious) from a major metropolitan daily with a great wrap-up of the week in food. I suggest others sign up for it too.

    Also, I saw fiddleheads for about $5 a pound the other day so I got some. Wow were they underwhelming. Don't know why people would pay $18 a pound for them.

    My girlfriend went grocery shopping and bought a lime.

    It's like I'm dating a Rockefeller.
