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.

    Ahem, I went to GU... but I know what you mean. That's why my girlfriend is an AU girl.

    Oops oops, sorry. I meant "G-town students who are assholes," as distinguished from G-town students who are not assholes. Yes, that's what I meant. [​IMG]

    The first month that place is open is a scene I want to miss. Ugh. The number of rich G-town assholes that will be in there will be staggering.

    edit: for clarification, I meant the G-town students, not residents of G-town, the neighborhood.

    Oh please, the most obnoxious people on M/Wisconsin are the tourists/out of towners.

    I may be biased, but I think the students are undeserving of this characterization (at least no more deserving than any other DC school).

    I failed to see the humor, but should do better to hold my tongue in the future. Perhaps that joke is no longer funny after the first 10^15 times of hearing something similar.

    Anyways, I am chilled, over it, and like you, won't be going to the VV store opening [​IMG]

    ... but it is kinda true about CUA girls (the Sorority girls anyway), with the exception of your wife of course. I hang out at Kelly's Irish Times (The Times) here and there, I know from some experience. Now GWU girls, THAT'S where it's at. God bless Porters/Sign of the Whale/Lucky Bar/Frontpage/etc, but I really miss LuLu's, though I think I'm too old now if it was still around.

    Thanks for giving an exception for my wife! [​IMG] I actually no virtually nothing about CUA. My wife went for grad school at a later age. So she wasn't exactly hanging with the undergrads.

    +1 on GWU girls. I went to AU and graduated in the mid to late 90s and while they were solid, GWU and GMU were, imo, the best.

    Was the ratio of straight guys to women at AU like 2/10 like it is now? With those odds, I kinda wish I went to AU for undergrad.

    AU admissions is currently struggling trying to figure out how to attract more males to the school! If you can believe that. I think the ratio is something like 4-1. When I was in school, it was 2/3-1. But like anything else, it's all abut the quality, not quantity. What use is it if it's all ugly chicks? Not saying that was the case - plenty of top notch talent, but there was plenty of untalented as well.

    You would not believe how many colleges "struggle" with this. The fact is, more women are applying for college than men. And you wouldn't believe how much younger faculty (like I was) could not figure out how guys would avoid a school with such great odds. Sad fact is that it's ingrained sexism.

    Anyway, back to our regular programming.

    Yeah, I hear ya. I wrote a series of articles exploring it for the Men's Health Network (not the magazine). It's more than ingrained sexism, but that's a chief factor.

    How the hell did we get here anyway? Oh yeah, VV's store in G-Town. Sorry.

    The Alden store is OPEN on F St.! So head down the Gallery Place and check it out!

    Now that's great news. Thanks. I was wondering when it would open. I'm kind of on a search for new shoes. Burgundy monks, for preference. No clue if Alden carries such a thing. But I'm sure I can suffer through looking.

    not much of a headsup but at the tyson's marshalls there are some allen edmonds loafers, most of them are tassel, not my thing. there were a few of the urbino (?) which i liked, had a really thin sole. prices were 70-120, with the 1-2 dress shoes being at the high end of the price range. limited sizes.
