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.

    I feel you man. I posted on the last page. It's about 85 miles for me. I can only imagine what the extra 30ish miles would be like. Do you like your job, at least?

    Thanks. I tend to think that any long commute is rough. The only saving grace is that there's no real traffic. Stop-and-go would kill me. I saw some bit on a guy that has something like a two hour one-way commute that from New Jersey into NYC. It's a short distance but pure stop-and-go, bumper-to-bumper traffic. I'd have a heart attack within a year.

    I do like my job, but the commute prevents me from giving 100% to it (too few hours in the day, too wiped out at the end, etc.) and I hate that.

    5 minutes walk and cross one road.

    By bus and train: 1 1/2 hours. The worst part is that when
    I get there it's a 10-minute walk (outdoors) to the place, so if it's raining really hard (or snowing)
    I have to walk there in the bad weather.

    For you veteran commuters: If I have the choice between a 50-60 minute (50 mile) light traffic driving commute, or a 80 minute train commute, what's the better alternative?

    I'd love to be able to read/get some work done on the way into work. I don't mind sitting on a train. Somehow the public situation helps me concentrate more. YMMV

    10 minute walk through a park to my studio.

    I do sometimes miss the subway commute. It was a great way to get some reading done / learn a new language, etc.

    I walk. It's about a 15-20 minute walk depending on my route.
