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,

    Interesting that nobody seems to carry checks. I've always thought it an elegant way to pay for things.
    Elegant way to pay for things? [​IMG] Do you put on your monocle and (someone beat me to it) pull out your quill then load your groceries into your horse drawn carriage and head back to your cabin? My Mullholland Bros bi-fold has my lone credit card, 3 debit cards, lots of corporate/store cards, gym membership card, some cash, couple receipts, car insurance, health insurance, car registration, driver's license, not yet expired school ID (just in case I need a student discount somewhere), and probably a couple other random things

    The clichÃ[​IMG] here is a manky looking student trying to pay for a tin of beans with a check. Neither image seems exactly flattering.

    Oh this and that. I usually try to carry pictures of my cousin Lucy's husband's uncle and of an old family friend who used to always stay with my great-great uncle when he had business in that part of Illinois.

    If this sounds weird to you, I'll tell you that you probably carry their pictures too!

    Driver's license, three credit and one debit card, phone card, work ID, Subway pass, insurance card, occasional Starbucks or other gift card. About a year ago I downsized to a smaller wallet and don't keep receipts, phone numbers, airline cards, museum memberships, etc. I like this much better.

    No. I thought, perhaps, that the difference between anachronism and elegance was plain, but I see I am mistaken. ~ H

    Small wallet thingy with DL, Amex, Debit, Metrocard, a $2 bill and 4 business cards.

    In my briefcase I carry a Bosca with dozens of cards: Hotels, Airlines, insurance cards and a bunch of access cards to various federal courthouses across the country -- top that one SF bitches!!

    I also carry a money clip with enough cash to payoff a Somali pirate brigade (about eleven bucks).
