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,

    I am only 1 degree removed from this guy. He is friends with a very good friend of mine. They went to U Indiana together. Apparently, he went from being completely miserable - having to consciously schedule classes held in close proximity to each other, with special seating, being embarrassed to be seen, etc.. to being pretty happy with life over the course of summer.

    I wonder if Distorb will get his jacket this summer, and how much that will change him.

    I like fashion but if you're semi-broke in college please spend the money on girls, gigs and drugs.

    1 pack cigs bought per day by poor college student for 1 year = $2912

    5 ToJ products bought by poor college student in 1 year = $3000

    Which is more idiotic? Discuss...

    lmao if you have to forego proper meals you are not in a position to afford $800 anything much less $3k clothing. Jesus Christ dude, priorities and common sense. saying "it works for me, so it's fine" is just being an ostrich and burying your head in the sand.

    Hopefully this isn't representative of TOJ's clientele--officially fucking embarrassing.

    bruh, i'm seeing max raabe (!!!) with a cute girl tonight :eek:


    idk why everybody is acting like it's some kind of dichotomy, whether it's only clothes and nothing else or gigs and nothing else or friends/girls and nothing else

    like i said, i budget (i didn't just grow $3k out of my ass; i saved up and altered priorities) and i cut out funds in areas that i guess other people never really think to do, and it's actually more like $2k since that last $885 order was supposed to be refunded, so i guess I got screwed there but w/e


    as for food, i've been doing this since middle school to save up for video games or whatever, so i'm used to it

    i don't get hungry until the evening (if even), and it's an easy way to stay skinny, so it really doesn't phase me


    i hope this doesn't become the next 'asian it nerd', but i guess it's inevitable that y'all will drive this into the ground :violin:

    Don't worry. I don't think your admittance that you've been surviving on 11 cent Safeway cookies since middle school will turn into the next "chubby little Asian IT face" meme.

    Cigs at least give you some tangible pleasure.

    And possibly cancer and/or COPD. That's gonna be costly in the long run. TOJ jackets give you swag... and can result to PTSD, depression, violent outbursts, paranoia, and at worst, suicide (is Distorb still alive?) from the all the waiting. It can also make you malnourished and possibly develop stomach ulcers from not eating but at least you won't have a chubby Asian IT face. I guess that can also be costly. Healthcare is a bitch.

    Seroiusly, if masshi's money came from a job that he had, I don't really count it against him if he decided to eat just 2 cookies for a whole meal to buy that stuff. He earned it in his own way.
