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,

    Awesome, G! I know what those presentations are like. It's incredible the amount of shit you have to retain simply for a just-in-case scenario. :fu:

    IRL people have asked me on more than one occasion if I am "of tribe" (Jewish) no I am not. (Put in the happy thread because what the hell, at least people was talking to me (acknowledge my existence)).

    Yeah I get asked that on occasion. My profession probably contributes to that misconception, coupled with the fact that a lot of German and Dutch jews do have my last name.

    You have a good last name for a website such as this one.

    I was going to say your name is tailor-made for a site such as this, but I thought better of it (in the last analysis).

    I was asked if I was a "long a man" and the person told me it meant Jewish.

    That is hard to understand. I pronounce the a long or short based on the correct pronunciation of the word I happen to be saying. I can't imagine always pronouncing it long. (My own first name would sound silly if I did that!)

    I have a small fan (or rather, an "Air Circulator") that I have had for several years. The combination of having a cat and a small fan that sits on the floor, and sometimes using that fan to ventilate air out my kitchen window, led to a pretty disgusting appliance.

    I was going to try and clean it, but there was no way to get all of the hair and dust that had stuck to the oily mess inside. I opened it up but it was going to be way too much work to scrub inside of each hole of the grating...

    So I said fuck it, and put it in the dishwasher. I pulled the motor/blade unit out, but the cord was attached, so I just slid the cord to the other end, left the motor dangling out the front of the dishwasher, and wedged that shit shut.

    Now I have clean dishes and a fan that looks brand new except for the finish that I marred while trying to get it open :slayer:

    I wonder if your phone is anti-Semitic, to where it can bring itself to allow "Jewish" words to be typed?

    Just now I bought a new shower curtain of which a lot of you guys would be jealous if you could but see it. (Previously, I had been settling for a shower curtain that wasn't what I really wanted it was green.)
