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.

    Your characterization of me is unfair and incorrect. I do not enjoy "iced tea." I enjoy sweet tea. How anyone can drink unsweet tea of any type is beyond me.


    I'm sorry your advanced age has deprived you of the ability to enjoy one of life's simple pleasures.

    By giving up a few hours of vacation time, I've brought my health care premium for next year down to $0.00.

    I tried to sell back all of my vacation days last year, but they wouldn't do it.

    I rack up vacation time like crazy, and I never get to use it. Mainly because I get comp time, personal time, floating holidays, etc. But I also don't take a lot of time off.

    I get an insanely small amount of vacation time. I'd rather have the money honestly.

    I was just randomly looking through some texts and found textual corrrespondences relevant to my thesis topic that seem to have been largely missed by the academy. See pissed off thread for more details.

    Interesting how our verbal associations change over time. These days, one might think a post starting like this was likely from the online dating thread . . .

    I love cold and rainy days, especially ones with fall foliage. I had a nice walk through the park.

    I treasure my 5 weeks of vacation time. In a way, I'm working so that I can afford the vacations I want to use those days on.

    We can actually "buy" an extra week but I refuse to do that on principle

    Your crease is too sensitive.

    Edit - it's actually 6.67 weeks of vaca :D

    I was dividing the days by 7 to get weeks, but of course you only have to take 5 days to get a week :smarmy:

    I read that four times before I figured out what you meant. God I'm too old to be 27.

    In my defense, since I've been in Denmark I rarely talk to people under the age of 30 unless I'm giving a lecture to undergrads. The only people I know my age are in my field and might as well be 50.

    You keep saying "my field" and I am beginning to suspect that it is something nefarious.

    I think that's the punchline to a jooish joak I heard once:
    "Somebody help! My son the doctor is posting on Styleforvm!"
