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,

    I looks somewhat like twill, but I guess the name is different for a reason.

    The first time I've ever seen that term was last night when I was browsing the Jantzen web site and found this page with swatches of dobby fabric. It looks to be any fabric with a textured weave. Someone else might have a better definition.

    A house elf. Also, the second most annoying movie character of all time after Jar Jar.

    ...though in dobby's case, his annoyingness is intentional. the movies have been relatively faithful to the books.

    for jar-jar, there's just no excuse. somebody should've slapped lucas before he committed that character to film.

    I haven't seen Revenge of the Sith yet but I've been hoping for six years now that Jar Jar gets lightsabered or worse.

    And "it's a elf" just may make it as a new catchphrase!
