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,

    Looking to purchase a pair or maybe two pair of boots for coming winter/autumn months in the southern hemisphere (no snow). Possibly a black pair for work/office environment and a dark brown or burgundy for casual and jeans. Looking at boots either at ankle or just above ankle. Looking for input on the type of boot that is SF endorsed and or not endorsed. Please comment on types

    1) Elastic Boot
    2) Zipper Boot
    3) Laces Boot

    Thanks

    1) Elastic is fine (I prefer it when the elastic is covered with strips of leather)
    2) Not a fan. I'd only go for them if I were getting faux button boots
    3) The best - I would just get 2 of these
