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 had a Coke Blak today. Ugh. It tastes like embalming fluid. Yes, I've tasted embalming fluid. I could live without that.

    I could live without people cruising around with a tire/rim size larger/smaller than the one that is supposed to be on their vehicle.

    Honestly, I could live without Tom Cruise. That guy is turning into the new Micheal Jackson. (who I finally managed to get rid of...)

    one of my friends, on the topic of coke blak, said that at first sip it tastes just like regular coke, with a faint undertone of tar. then the tar taste intensifies, and the regular coke flavour disappears completely

    the end result, he said, is like vomiting and not rinsing your mouth afterward

    I have told several people lately that someone needs to give Tom Cruise a white sparkly glove so pop culture could go ahead and dispense of his crazy ass.

    On a more on-topic note, I could do without vests. As part of a suit, they're cool, but people wearing them by themselves makes me think of Wal-Mart smocks or bad '90s flashbacks, complete with banded-collar shirts.

    Kitsch, disposable cutting boards, fake lemon juice, cooking wine, bleached flour, precooked meals, Pepsi, Red Bull, jello shots, TV commercials, speed limit signs, Wal Mart, Ipods, plastic supermarket bags, imitation crabmeat, glass packs, baseball caps, leaf blowers... this could get to be a very long list...

    I like disposible cutting boards. although I like real, hard wood cutting boards, they are very unhygenic. I get a half dozen hard plastic ones for about $3 every few months, clean them with a harsh bleaching cleanser as needed, and then replace them.

    I like it my 2 iPods (that's right, I said 2!). My 20 GB allows me to never have to use CD's in my car ever again, and my shuffle allows me to bike for 4 hours and still have plenty of music left over to listen to while I'm laying on the grass outside my house unable to move my legs after, you know riding for 4 hours (against the wind, in 92 degree weather with 85% humidity). I like Red Bull, but only with vodka.

    I could live without: spam (both the faux-meat and the email kind), slow / inept drivers, people who don't hold doors open for you (that includes elevator doors), people who just stare at you when they want something, waiting for you to guess instead of verbally telling you what they want, pop-ups, people who bring cell phones to class (you are not an ER doctor, and you are not on call), people who don't pay attention how they open their car doors, and ultimately scratch your door.

    They are the only Mapple product I like.

    I could live without waking up at 6AM. Really. I'm not a morning person.

    On a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon: the use of a lawnmower by your neighbor, followed by their leaf blower coming into action, followed by the high pressure water washer, followed by more lawnmowing, followed by more leafblowing, totaling over 3 hours of witnessed noise, (until you are done with your quiet gardening and decide to head for the state park to escape).

    I once spent a few days in a tour bus with an Aussie band called Spiderbait. I learned a lot of great slang.

    It's bad enough when I have to say, "well I'm gonna have to do this myself."
    What I can do without is the inevitable 2nd and 3rd trip to the hardware store to get the stuff to do it.
