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.

    London -- the best opera, symphony, museums, great way of life, shopping, restaurants, hotels.
    NYC -- pace, shopping, feel, energy, culture
    Paris -- food, wine, museums, shopping, beauty


    Chicago -- no need for 2nd city moniker. A great city with the best orchestra.
    Los Angeles -- weather, beaches
    Las Vegas -- C'mon!
    Vancouver -- beauty, environment
    Montreal -- home for a long time
    Seattle -- general feel of the city
    Boston -- home for a while, great feel, cultured

    Edit: Heading to San Francisco for 25th next summer. I have a feeling it may jump the queue.

    really?

    I mean, I had a blast there on a bachelor party, but other than some seriously seedy nightlife, doesn't really have a whole lot going for it

    I havent read this whole thing but i'm amazed that Edinburgh isnt mentioned more

    the largest arts/comedy festival in the world, events happening nearly all year round drawing in massive name celebraties, these guys invented celebrating new years and has one of the best parties in the world for it, lasting 5 days, the whole damn city is world herritage listed because of its gothic arctecture, there's a massive park in the middle of it, you can walk around the whole thing and its got the best bus system in the world.

    the only thing its missing is good weather.

    Edinburgh shits on 95% of cities listed here.

    there's also not enough Barcelona. Too many American cities which are not New York too.

    ^^^I was considering putting it in my top 10, but it just missed out. It's a great city and has plenty going for it - I wouldn't have lived there for 3 years if it wasn't. I still like it, just not as much as the others...

    These are my favorite cities I have been to, mainly because of art and architecture, museums and libraries I visited there. In terms of paying attention to fine food, style, and live music, even in my hometown, I'm pretty much oblivious, though I'm working on the style part. in no particular order: Rome - Capitoline Museum, St. Peter's and Vatican Museum, Galleria Doria Pamphilj, Pantheon Paris - The Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Musee de l'Orangerie, MusÃ[​IMG]e Jacquemart-AndrÃ[​IMG] New York - Metropolitan Museum Washington D. C. - Haven't been in years. Boston - Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Fogg Museum, Boston Public Library, Boston College Libraries Martha's Vineyard - Love this place. I'd look to live or retire there if I could [​IMG] My favorite used book store is there, called The Book Den. Chicago - Art Institute of Chicago, Newberry Library Kyoto - Shinto temples. The city just had an amazing aura. Antwerp - Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Rubens' House, St. James' Church Cody, WY - surrounded by Yellowstone Nat'l Park. Buffalo Bill Historical Center was full of some great landscape paintings by Thomas Moran.

    I like that you can actually buy literally anything there. Not that I want to. It's just nice to know that you can.

    Yeah, it's a shithole.
