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,

    I saw that and was subsequently saddened, though mistakenly, in retrospect, that you had +1'ed it.

    Had a physical today. Apparently I am a little taller than I had always thought. :slayer: Still can't dunk, though. Although I have not tried since finding this extra height, so I should check it out this weekend.
    Boy fact and cholesterol numbers were also a bit better than I expected, given that I feel like I've been slacking on diet and exercise of late and more generally am on the inevitable slide into decrepitude (no JLib).

    H1B approved, I mean I expect it to be approved (not subject to quota here), though still a relief. Also wife just got prevailing wage for green card back, so I guess I am on the green card...

    edit: I am on the green card "applying" band wagon now, perm itself is probably still 2 years away

    Things makes me happy: the cat is very people friendly, almost too friendly, and it likes to play catch sometimes (she acts like a dog 50% of the time)

    Things not going so great: it's the first time the wife ever had a cat (she wanted one since childhood, but never end up having one), and she is developing a bit of an allergy (might or might not have something to do with the cat), so might have to give the cat to someone else... Also she is getting paranoid about toxoplasmosis (we expect to have kids in the next 2 year or so), I have no idea how she can completely ignore that before we adopt the cat then getting paranoid about it like a week after we adopt it...

    edit: why does text in my post disappear, like I need to edit and resubmit to make sure everything is shown, or it's just my browser is f*ed up with javascript (Chrome)?

    I'd assumed danish would be quicker for me than Icelandic, because A) its simpler (accent aside) and B) its similar, and I already learned Icelandic pretty well.

    I was not expecting to sit in on a departmental coffee hour (no-one realized I didn't speak danish until I pointed it out half way through) and understand 50+% of the conversation, or being able to have a basic conversation with a tiny bit of prep in a bar tonight. One of the professors said my danish comprehension skills were good for an Icelander (he's icelandic). I then proceeded to have a long, rambling conversation with him and his wife in Icelandic, before I finally explained to him that, no, I'm not Icelandic, I've never studied modern Icelandic or danish, and yes, I'm an american who left the states this time last year. his face was priceless.

    Feeling like a linguistic pimp (even though I know I'm not) and totally ready to apply for that bartender job B)

    You don't give away pets like that. Pets are members of the family and you just deal with shit.

    I believe it was Kant that said something about being able to judge a person by how they treated animals.

    Although I'm wary of winter approaching, I can't wait for Fall.

    I looooove the smell of that burnt smoke in the air once the weather starts to get a bit chilly. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    I love the Fall. It's when everything dies.

    Fall is the best because it's the intersection of 3 amazing things: baseball, football, and heavy beers.

    Finally got a credit card, it's actually a secured card that I had to open a $1K CD in order to obtain, but a credit card nonetheless.

    I'm just someone that's been dead inside since before the first Goth was born.
