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.

    This just isn't true.
    Aren't they computer generated faux-pencil drawings now?

    Yes, they invite the interviewee to Chuck E Cheese, discuss the interview topic over pizza, and then sit them down in the Chuck E Cheese portrait booth to keep things cost effective..

    Their standards have slipped...no arguing that point. Example:

    Yes, I know that he is instantly recognizable, but still, where's the art of it?

    I don't know. I thought they were still doing them by hand, but I could be wrong.

    The old technique, for anyone who's wondered, was to take a photograph and blow it up to 8x10 or so. The artists would then create a stipple drawing of the same size. When it was done, it would be shrunk down to 1" high or so.

    I'd add the following as they reek of interesting places:

    [​IMG]

    This one because it reminds me of the wonderful coffee shop culture of Sydney.

    [​IMG]

    This one because of the Canterbury Cathedral- the Man of Kent knows how to use backdrops.

    [​IMG]

    This one because xchen knows how to use props to hide what he is wearing.

    Nice additions.

    I'm saving xchen's "We would all hit it," photograph for the month end summary, but no reason not to post her twice.

    Is the 'Cropped to Protect Innocence' segment only monthly?

    It is quite remarkable how invisible he is in that photograph.

    That's "Cropped to Protect the Guilty," and yes, that is at the end of each month.

    It's quite possible that he will be cropped out at the end of the month. Not that anyone will notice.

    There's an eyeless girl sharpening a half seen implement in that photo.

    Not that we'd notice.
