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.

    Cheers,

    Wonderful, I was wondering when someone would mention this. Good on you for preparing it. This is the ultimate comfort food.

    I might be tempted to replace the Monbazillac with a first growth sauternes for more concentration and noble rot (not yquem-although great is too expensive for me)

    Sure but the portions are reasonable so you are not any worse of than elsewhere.

    I look at it in a satiation per calorie/saturated fat ratio. So this type of high satiation cuisine scores well despite the fat.
