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,

    Well I lived in both cities and that's my honest opinion. [​IMG]

    This is the big difference between NYC and Atlanta. Atlanta bars are friendly and full of approachable, beautiful women. NYC is a lonely place in spite of all the density.

    There's another reason why I love New York (no facetiousness involved). New York, by the way, is one of the best cities to wander about alone without having to feel odd about yourself.

    As an aside, I avoided reading this site for the longest time because I figured everyone on an internet style forum must have unpleasant attitudes like our banker friend. It was a nice surprise to find some decent gentleman instead.

    In the South we call such a place a "gay bar".

    Compare and contrast:

    CLOTHES

    Banker: Hickey Freeman suit, $2,749. "I have about 10 suits and usually buy them at Hickey Freeman and Paul Stuart."

    Doctor: "I don't usually buy my scrubs, I steal them from hospitals - everybody does it. When I buy my scrubs, I get them online at Allheart.com for $10.99."

    GROOMING

    Banker: "there are shoe-shiners walking around on our floor offering to shine our shoes"

    Doctor: "My hair was once too long and a colleague told me to cut it so now I cut it, about every three months at Supercuts in Brooklyn [$15]. I think patients like it better if their doctors are clean-cut. Patients say they like my hair."

    TASTES

    Banker: puts cigars on his resume

    Doctor: 50 cent coffee



    Meanwhile, the mechanical engineer is out having a good time.

    Dominican place off 88th and Columbus charges $14 with tip

    TASTES

    Coffee from my street vendor is now $0.60

    Meanwhile, the lawyers are out having a good time.


    EDIT: To keep up with the times...
