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,

    Disagree, this seems quite apt.

    "Patrick is overweight dimwitted, lazy, immature, forgetful, unmannerly, and generally ignorant. He has been shown to make many idiotic mistakes such as forgetting how to eat, and not realizing that the character Sandy Cheeks is a female. Despite this, he has occasionally been portrayed as somewhat of a savant, with articulate observance to certain subjects in specific detail. However, he always reverts quickly back to his usual, unintelligent self after displaying the moment of wisdom."

    My comment was not related to anything anyone posted, especially GF's job search. I'm sure that is difficult for him, I didn't even notice what he said. Generally, I don't get how people can operate daily on a level that would seem to indicate they have absolutely no common sense, intuition and clearly no substantial education.

    But you basically described GF! Ok, maybe inadvertently. And maybe not the education part

    Okay what the hell is wrong with the word "people?" Why is everyone besay "folks" or "folk?" (Example sentence: "We are waiting for the folks in HR to make an decision.") I am not going to lie it sounds ridiculous to the ear.

    It's also a terrible American TV show.

    There's two doors inside this cafe by my house. One of the doors has a sign that says, "NOT the bathroom", the other "Bathroom". Do you know how many people I see open up the door that says, "NOT the bathroom"? It is alarming really. Do people think they are being tricked, or are they just plain stupid?

    Bathrooms are in homes, restrooms are in establishments. So a sign that it's not the bathroom doesn't rule it out as a restroom.
