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,

    Has GF become the first non-sock parody account on SF?

    When I pull out of my neighborhood there's about a four mile stretch of road with a nice walking path along side of it. I do not get all the middle aged women I see every morning walking along it while talking on their cell phones. Seriously, wtf? Who are you possibly talking to at 5:30-6am that is so important you cannot finish your walk first?

    My only answer is they're talking to other middle aged women walking somewhere else.

    Your imagination would be faulty.

    How is mine though? I always picture you in a small apartment building for senior citizens that yell at the kids making noise outside from their balconies.

    I have often wondered the same thing about people who are audibly talking gossip on their phone at 6:30am. Somebody seriously woke up that early to hear a bunch of bullshit?

    It's not for senior citizens, most of them have just lived here since the building was build in the 50's and no one yells of their balcony, someone did throw water the other day, but he was in his 40's and it worked.

    i swear - either i am totally missing a very simple piece of the puzzle, or the org chart Smart Art function in Powerpoint is an elaborate troll by a disgruntled Microsoft employee.

    here's a running tally of what doesn't fucking work with this thing -

    boxes and fonts resize randomly and without any reason or warning
    when i manually move one box all the others suddenly jump around
    if you resize the whole chart, it's like an IED went off
    all the aligning and distribute tools are turned off, so you have to line everything up manually

    this thing is such a shit show that i ended up drawing boxes and lines manually :fu:

    I hear for sandwich franchises, your best bet for your dollar is Quiznos.

    There are a zillion of 'em for a reason. Low startup costs, low operational costs, and a reasonably steady customer stream pretty much anywhere remotely close to any inhabited area.

    That said, I think it would be comically boring to actually run one day to day.

    Didn't they file for bankruptcy just earlier this year? Who the fuck eats at Quiznos? I can't say I have ever even seen one.
