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.

    Sorry I'm a week behind in my reading. I thought I recognized La Voile. The soupe de poisson is not to be missed, either.

    Alan, overall nice job. However, I don't understand the logic behind calling an above the knee overcoat a cocktail dress. It is just as accurate to call a longer overcoat a "long dress" as it is to call an above the knee overcoat a "cocktail dress." Perhaps ridiculous is a a better word than accurate. I prefer above the knee because I believe they look much better on a younger gentleman such as myself, but perhaps I lean more towards modern cuts.

    It's a subjective and unfair digest. It's also a joke. (Also see).

    That generated a lot of lols and chuckles. I do second you maintaining your Guest Editor-ship if Vox agrees [​IMG]

    Analysis-paralysis maybe dv3?

    I think its a joke - nothing more, nothing less ... you are overthinking the joke ... lol.


    Edit: looks like Alan beat me to it.

    Very nicely done Alan. Perhaps next week we'll go to a show that has more than one intermission?

    Thanks for the kind words, all.

    Ha! Fantastic! Alan, I insist that you do a third guest week.

    I hope that you will agree.


    Only if my pay is doubled.
