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.

    I got a new stapler in my office but here's the thing that's misleading because it's really a old stapler, just new to me. It's one of those heavier ones that staples real good not like those cheap plastic ones.

    Nope, no Hello Kitty decals or anything like that just a old-fashion stapler.

    Hard to come by such quality craftsmanship in office supplies these days (what with budget cutbacks and so forth).

    You people still staple things? What year are you living in?

    I inherited my stapler from a guy who retired when I joined the company.

    So by "inherited" you mean "stole".

    I never figured you for a petty thief, pB. I figured if you were going to steal you'd go big and try to knock off a bank or a John Lobb store or something.

    I met someone today from the unfortunately named Universidad de Moron, in Buenos Aires, Argentina

    The stapler has long since been depreciated and is off the books. That's my rationalization at least.

    You're like Richard Pryor in Superman III, just a few cents here, just a few cents there.

    One day, I asked the IT department for a new mouse for my computer as the old one wasn't functioning properly. They came and delivered me a new one in plastic and all. I plugged it in and took the old one to accounting to ask what I have to do to it. They were confused and told me to throw it in the garbage. I was confused and inquired if they had to write the asset off the books. The guy nearly had a coronary he was laughing so hard.

    You would make a great supply sergeant.

    Um....a computer mouse in 99.9% of the world is not considered an asset.

    It's been depreciating on the books since 1998!

    I guess you have no asset management/supply chain know how.

    I wonder what the expected life of the asset was?
