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,

    That's getting a little personal. I know I'm going to regret this but why do you ask? Are you a scientologist?

    You have never asked me that. Or maybe you did when I wasn't looking?

    You'd better read every post on the entire forum to check.

    Didn't find it, but that's with only one read-through. Irregardless of whether he asked or not, though, I can just go ahead and answer the question: no. But of course I'll read the whole forum a couple more times just to be sure.

    PB asked me in person when I was drunkenly stumbling out of one of Manhattan's fanciest Martini bars. I answered negatively but may have tried to give my Hermes pocket square to a hooker so he helped me out there.

    Will hookers give an SF member discount?

    Also, I don't get houndstooth. I think I need to stop trying. Herringbone might be as country as I can handle.

    No.

    Also, try it when you're actually in the country.

    If only I were in Europe or New England. Country here is...well...not...uhhh...anything. And back in Texas, I've been to the country a number of times and I've never seen anyone in houndstooth. Salmon colored khaki shorts, Sperry's, and Brooks Brothers button downs, yes. If we're talking about really country...then I don't know what brands they wear, but they look expensive until they get covered in javelina innards. I think country house parties don't happen in Texas...just ranch parties.

    Thomas, do you wear houndstooth to ranch parties?

    How my dog gets on and off my bed at night, I know he doesn't jump as he usually whimpers until, I lift him up or down, so there can only be two explanations.

    1. Helpful ghosts
    2. I do it in my sleep.

    There is this cute little Indian woman who works in my office and she is so easily startled. If you go over to her desk to ask for something she jumps and grabs her chest. If you are walking and come around the corner and she is there she will jump and gasp. I always try my very best to make my presence known, but everything frightens her.

    I also think it is funny that all of these other Indian men who work at the company are always looming around sniffing her farts throughout the day. I feel like yelling at them to leave her alone because I know her husband. I really do know her husband. He works in another department at the company. He is not easily frightened though,

    AAC has gone full grumpy old men mode. It's been pretty bad for a while but I think I just lost my patience.

    Eh, I kinda just put up with it for the last year or so but its unbearable now. Aside from a few really good Trad posters, the menswear side is just awful. Have you looked at the WAYWN thread? If not, it's pretty funny.

    Not in a long time, but it is about as funny as ours, but for slightly different reasons.

    Since the g/f is in LA for work we can only really talk late in the evening. Last night I hadn't heard from her yet and I was tired so I went to sleep and text messaged her that I was going to sleep, but to call me anyway. This morning I didn't get a text from her or anything from last night and freaked out that I didn't hear from her. I look at my phone call history and it says about 30 minutes after I laid down she called and the call completed. So, she must have called and I talked to her, but I have no recollection of this at all.

    I don't get why people use their iPads to take pictures during vacations.

    If you can afford a $500 iPad then you can just use a regular $100 point and shoot camera to take vastly superior images, more quickly, and easily.
