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 do quite a bit but this summer has been hard, the rain just comes from nowhere and hoses you. Basically you'd have to carry one 24/7, which maybe I should, but it's a pain.

    Days where the weather forecast says there is a 40% chance of rain I bring my cane umbrella to work, all others I carry a small retractable one in my bag just in case.

    If there is a 30% chance or more I wear shoes that have fallen out of favor that I save for rainy days. I have it down to a science!

    If the weather is obviously foul I wear rubber soled beaters. I can forgo a day in leather soles to avoid risk. Although, light rain doesn't bother me.

    I wish we had rain to complain about. Dry as the desert in these parts.

    You should be happy your shoes aren't ruined and the frame on your car isn't rusting!

    Have one, but can't use it. Mandatory ban on watering. $2500 fine for violators.

    similar here, but even 1% chance will get me to rethink my shoes and pants for the day.


    hope you get plenty of rain. at night.
