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 was living in MAine, smoking pot, working and wanting to get the hell out of there. Now I'm 50, don't smoke and love going back home.

    Studying Quantum Physics and learning to fly Light Aircraft. I also managed to land a hot girlfriend, despite such nerdy pursuits. Good times.

    Moved from a suburb of NYC to a sub of San Francisco. The Bay Area was very relaxed and cool in 1970. Surfing at Santa Cruz or skiing at Squaw Valley was uncrowded and casual. Lots of cute, cool girls. Had a little motorcycle and a surf board. Couldn't wait to be older.

    Not really, I was in my last year of catholic high school and had this huge virgin complex, not because I believed in religion at all (I didn't), but because the years of dealing with my school preaching abstinence was the only method of birth control, mixed with my mom basically convincing me I'd be a whore if I had sex before marriage had me all messed up and thinking I'd wait for "the one". I also started university and I was one of the only students in my classes who couldn't drink (drinking age is 18), so I never got invited anywhere, and never got asked out. In other words, I was kind of a loser. [​IMG]

    I once asked her what she would do if her only real accomplishment on her deathbed was being the hot chick on a men's clothing website. She gave me some bullshit answer. So.... there's that.

    She'd do one of the classic moves where we have a great tag team team, and we are just storming through the competition, and then, all of a sudden, in the middle of a match, she whacks me over the head with a metal folding chair and decides that she is switching tagteam partners. Then spb lady and her would kick my ass while conne sat on the sideline fapping.

    Shit. I was considering making a poal in DTs about how such an event would play out, but that is the exactly correct answer.

    It's true, and then they'd hand me a mic so I could shit talk you and glare you down as you stumbled up the ramp confused/hurt/bewildered by my actions. [​IMG]

    Hmm, at 17 I had my first semester of college: pre-calculus, summer session. My parents moved a few hundred miles away and put their house on the market, I stayed behind and moved in with a friend whose parents were dirt poor. My folks never had a lot, but his folks nearly had nothing. I shared my friend's room, had a bed, a phone line, and a case each of Ramen noodles and moon pies, which were replenished from time to time. I blossomed academically for my last year of high school while wearing a mullet at a snob school. We listened to a lot of Led Zep and the Clash, played pool, did some homework, and chased the occasional girl that looked our way (which wasn't many).

    Playing football and lacrosse, smoking shitty pot and drinking bad beer. I started my first year as a lifeguard and lost my virginity before going to college. Listened to a lot of punk, but discovered Sublime and good reggae. It was a good year.

    I worked at a summer camp, it wasn't quite like meatballs... but I had a lot of fun.

    I think I had a car by then so I listened to music, and drove around a lot since gas was still only like 1.30 a gallon.
