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,

    The street I grew up on from the age of 8 was called Fond du Lac up to a point, at which point (point in the road not point in time, it always had the same names) it started calling itself Manitowac.

    But it was located not in Wisconsin, but in Southern California.

    My father lived in Pleasant Prairie, which is very close to Kenosha.

    My home's backyard neighbor was in Pleasant Prairie. They didn't have an ordinance against burning leaves, so we'd always rake leaves into his yard for burning. :)

    Why is it people can't eat popcorn like it's going to disappear, if they don't eat them all in one mouthful.

    Today a lady winked at me as I crossed her path in the hallway. Clearly it was intended as a communication of some sort (no one just winks for no reason) but for the life of me I can't figure out what the message was supposed to be. I never, ever wink at other people so I cannot consult my own experience.

    It's natural, has anti-oxidants and is gluten free. But it only works if it wasn't genetically modified.
