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'm reading The Fountainhead. I was becoming sick of listening to people express their love or hate of Rand without having the ability to chime in. I read about 5 chapters and I'm skeptical about how this could get stretched into 800 pages with the degree of obviousness that you are subjected to within the first two or three pages. I think I get it. Do the characters ever stop becoming caricatures?
    No. Ayn Rand wrote some of the worst crap ever peddled, both in terms of her ideas and her fiction. She was like some nightmare combination of J.K. Rowling, Danielle Steele, and Freidrich Nietszche.

    I just finished A Single Man. I really liked Isherwood's style but I couldn't really relate to the protagonist on most points, and even if I recognize myself in him to some extent most of his internal monologue goes way above my head. Maybe when I grow old I'll be able to understand him more...

    The zombie survival guide by Brooks. Afterwards I'll read World War Z. I'm in the mood for a bit of crazy entertainment.

    Paradise Lost - John Milton

    I have a feeling I'll be reading this book forever. It's super slow-going, and I find myself pausing often. It's boring and fantastic.

    I enjoyed World War Z. It was a good, quick read, with plenty of unexpected little digs at politics and cultures that made me laugh.
