1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    High school, actually. Never made it to grad school. But I thought we were talking first lines, not favorite books.

    To clarify, I meant the response was grad student 101, not the suggestion.

    Thanks. And to further clarify, I wasn't offended.

    I don't know what they do in classes, but they seem to like to frequent cafes typing on their computers.

    And lay about in public parks, with cheap wine, discussing American Idol and Sartre--the irony.

    It's not a bad way of life, you know. I miss it sometimes.

    The Long Road Home by Martha Raddutz. Tells the story of the beginning of the Sadr City rising back in April 2004 from the soldier's point of view and also brings their families in as the news starts filtering back about casualties.

    The Cloud Atlas by Liam Corcoran. It's a story about an old priest in Alaska who reminisces about his days as a warrime bomb disposal sergeant, whilst visiting the local shaman who is dying in a hospice.

    Got that?

    Just finished A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway . An outstanding book about Hems early years in Paris.

    Currently reading The Innocent Man by John Grisham, not necessarily my type of book but since it was given to me I might as well read it.
