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,

    There's a huge thread on Ask Andy that should answer your question. You may wish to sprinkle yourself with holy water beforehand lest you be assimilated. [​IMG]

    (Horace @ June 11 2005,22:02) Answer to original question: Â he's acting like a tool. Question on l'ensemble de Cuffthis: Â it looks great, but is it Trad?
    I hope not. I am not a fan of Trad.
    Well, I always thought that, save your occasional display of excess, you were a rather apt representative of it. No need for self-loathing really.

    When I think of Trad, I think of Brooks Brothers sack suits, buttondown pinpoint oxfords, repp stripe ties, Alden wing tip brogues, etc. Other than repp stripe ties, I have none of the other items in my closet.

    Cuffthis might however be the one who will bring balance to the Trad.
