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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    A colleague of mine is fond of using "map" as a verb to replace plan, or document, or draw. Like "let's map out the process we are going to follow".

    I think I'm going to one-up him and start saying "let's cartograph this"

    ^ Ahh, I remember that look from my youth. Back then, it was the "am sure you're Chinaman" meme.

    You know, they just don't make movies like "Stroker Ace" anymore. I wonder how come?

    I knew you were racist against my people.

    In fact, doubly racist against me:

    Ever since Burt Reynolds passed away it's tough to find someone who can so convincingly play a badass.

    Aww man I don't think Burt Reynolds han passed away! Maybe they could get Norm McDonald to star in such kinds of film.

    You should look into an NTI bite guard. They don't work for everyone, but for the lucky people they do, they eliminate grinding and all its side effects.

    If curling is in the winter games, then shuffleboard needs to be part of the summer games. And poker.

    When people say "vino," are they trying to sound like a jagoff or do they not know they sound like a jagoff?
