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.

    A Thai restaurant in DC, one man, one stovetop, chef's menu. Reservations are booked weeks in advance. Take out orders must be called in 2 days in advance. It was a good meal. [​IMG]

    That place is ridiculous. It is probably the best Thai food in the city, but it's also just a takeout joint. It's not good enough to be worth the hassle. It was bad enough when you would have to wait a few hours for your order. Now, you have to order days in advance. WTF? It's takeout Thai food. It's supposed to be quick, easy, and spur of the moment. I don't want to plan days in advance to order takeout food.

    There's a subtlety in that guy's cooking that I haven't tasted elsewhere. I've had very good Thai food in Boston and NYC, but this one wins, hands down. Yeah, the wait is a bit ridiculous in this day and age, but since he buys fresh ingredients every day, so he has to know what to buy for the day. I actually like that approach.

    The individual pieces may be tasty but it looks gross all mixed together that way.

    It really was good, I promise. The flavors all went together quite well, nothing was overpowering, and the baked pasta "basket" was fantastic.

    Maybe you guys will find the appetizer and desert more appealing:
