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 don't get why I'm the only person on SF who knows how to install a piece of ad-block software.

    Every time people start complaining about ads, I always think "Ads? What ads?"

    Sorry SF for not giving you ad impressions.

    Does this ad-block software prevent commercials on Youtube from popping up? :spam:

    I would totally pay to not see ads. I think it should be an option.

    A car forum that I sometimes peruse when looking for plastidip ideas does this. X amount gets you Trunk Club. Y gets you ads like before. Z gets you no ads.

    Why the fuck do airports, or more specifically - airport rental car centers - not have a gas station right next to them? You have dozens of saps every minute rushing in a hurry, needing to fill up the tank so the rental company doesn't sodomize them, and there are no gas stations for fucking miles.

    Someone with capital needs to fill this gap asap. And I want a piece of the action because this is my idea, mother fuckers

    I believe it is an FAA regulation that prohibits automobile gas stations within x feet of airports. I had this same idea years ago. I suspect many people have had this idea.

    There is a plugin for that.

    Also lets you fix the stupid way they buffer now, disable autoplay, and some other useful things.

    I doubt that, otherwise how would you get nice, 100% filled up cars at the rental location? They must refill them when they come back in and I doubt they're going off property to do it.

    My hunch is that the rental car companies probably pay the facility not to have a gas station.

    LL rental companies have their own gas stations hidden away, where only employees see them.

    On the subject of cars brown cars with brown interiors, why?

    I guess I should have specified "retail" gas stations. Please don't make me go find the regs to prove it. I hate looking at that crap.

    I judge them even more.

    Only a fool would fall victim to such marketing ploys.
