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,

    Since there was a thread about places where you went and want to re-visit, I thought that it would be fun to have a thread about places where you regret visiting. If you can specify the reason why it ruined your vacation, please feel free to tell us.

    I have traveled a lot in the US and I like most of the places there. However, there aret towns such as Gary, IN and South of Chicago that I wish I had never gone.

    I'm not sure about Kuala Lumpur. Lived there for 6 months, which allowed me to see past the pretty buildings and nice weather - Malaysia's a corrupt and hypocritical country. And in a different way than Thailand, it's the moralizing that gets me.

    When I read this thread title, Gary was the first place that came to mind. I'll also second the poster who said Cancun.

    I saw the document at BBC America and they seemed to have great food in North India. It's very strange, but it is a real authentic and tasty food.

    I'm not sure about Kuala Lumpur. Lived there for 6 months, which allowed me to see past the pretty buildings and nice weather - Malaysia's a corrupt and hypocritical country. And in a different way than Thailand, it's the moralizing that gets me.

    Thailand is corrupted as fcuk! I don't know how one currupted country can be different from another.

    I have a feeling that these cities are your hometown, yes?

    By the way, Hong Kong is also part of China....... GOOD LUCK!
