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.

    NR, your distress has caused me a sleepless and fitful night.

    In between the tossing and turning my mind took me on flights of fancy with associations I may not have considered in a more fully conscious state.

    Surfing is a Taoist activity that brings one across the edge of the civilised construct and into the actuality of the wild.

    Once you have seen this place for what it is, you can never go back.

    Methinks your cold sweat is prompted not by the threat but by the desire for the situation.

    Oh damn, now my eye is twitching!...I need a nap.[​IMG]

    Nearly twenty years ago while on vacation surfing in Puerto Rico, I had an extremely vivid dream that a huge shark came up right underneath me and bit me clean in half. When I described the dream to a friend the next day, he explained that the Native Americans believed that if you had a dream about being eaten by an animal, then that was your spirit animal and it would protect you. I've never worried about sharks since, but that picture still freaks me out.

    I'm fairly sure that pic is on the internet as one of the verified urban legend, doctored photo types of things

    I am 15 years old, and yes I do make a living for myself [​IMG]
    I work at the library shelving books and working in customer service, and I also work at my church occasionally. Pays out well overall, I'm saving up for a trip to Venice (if the girl I love is still around) and if that doesn't work, London. Plus saving for a nice gift for her before she leaves for college. Otherwise I don't have too much to spend on!

    There aren't any nice girls that attend your church? Don't give gifts to people who won't appreciate them, it's a waste of your heart and your money.

    Hey I recognize you! [​IMG] No, there aren't any girls at my church I am interested in, in that way. Giving certain people gifts makes me feel good, even if my Cartier ring I gave the person in my other thread is on the bottom of the river!

    The problem is that I think she might you at the bottom of the river (metaphorically speaking); all I'm trying to do is help you out and getting you moving onto the next thing. [​IMG]

    I work for rock bands on tour, doing various things that all fall under the title of "band assistant".

    I used to be a graphic designer. No, I don't miss the daily grind.

    edit: I still do freelance design in my off hours

    JB for the love of god, no matter how much you love to give extravagant gifts do NOT waste that kind of money on a girl when you are your age. It is not worth it especially if you two are not even dating. You will look back and regret dumping that kind of money that you could have spent on say a decent car when you get your license (which opens up all kinds of doors to different girls)

    I was actually wondering the same... what kind of job do you need in order to be able to buy all that stuff some people on SF buy... all these Brioni suits and alligator loafers...
    I observe that a lot of you do technical or legal work.
    I am a patent attorney, and I basically do a mix of technical and legal work.
    I am not one of those guys with those Brioni and Kiton based wardrobes...
