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,

    Polos are the closest I come to wearing t-shirts, when I leave the house. I also don't wear hoodies. Hoodies suck.

    As for boat shoes? I don't ride boats.

    Now your turn.

    Wife beaters and boxers with black socks and shoes.

    I know, I know, I'm hopelessly stuffy.

    Dunno why, but I've always hated cardigans and split-toed shoes. I won't wear either.

    This.


    And this. Although STDs are worse and children with women you slept with one time isn't too far up on my list either.

    I don't wear shorts outdoors, unless its to the gym or the beach. Turtlenecks tend to strangle me so I pass on those. No wifebeaters. EVER.

    Yes, children/STDs are up there with the undesirable accessories. However, I have been with the same woman for three years. When adventure calls, so does the love glove--but they really need to improve these damn things.

    Murica!?!?!?! :crackup:

    As far as I know split toe shoes are not much of a staple here - but perhaps I'm wrong.

    I also have trouble with black shoes unless it's with a suit. Own a couple pairs, but low, low mileage.
