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.

    Fuck, I wanted to be Lewis Collins when I was a kid, just after my Starsky phase. Quite a cool look, [​IMG]

    I still want to be Bodie. But I couldnt find the opening sequence pic of him in cream odd jacket and dark brown flares, and I don't think I could carry them off.

    As for the Equalizer, I challenge anyone to find a pic of a man looking natural, wearing a double-cuffed shirt and suit with a watch chain in the breast pocket, while firing an Uzi - even if with an excessively bladed stance and elbows too high.

    In Fox Flannel.

    Edit: not an answer to George's challenge.

    27 seconds in (cream OD, big collar). The 9-10-year old me wanted to be him. Replaced Doctor Who.

    Leave G alone. He's got the vibe.

    To be precise, I think it's a mini-uzi, and the closed-bolt version. Where is J Libourel when you need him?

    There's some confusion to where he was born. Both Leeds and Connemara are named. We'll claim him though...!!![​IMG]

    No one mentioned my hero, Peter Cook;

    2David Frost rang Peter Cook up some years ago. "Peter, I'm having a little dinner party on behalf of Prince Andrew and his new bride-to-be Sarah Ferguson. I know they'd love to meet you, big fans; Be super if you could make it: Wednesday the twelfth." "Hang on... I'll just check my diary." Pause and rummaging and leafing through diary noises. And then Peter said "Oh dear. I find I'm watching television that night." "

    Now that, is style....

    Cook hated Frost with a passion. Saved him from drowning and forever regretted it.
