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've just got together with a college buddy who's now in the human hair trimming business in Northern California. We talk about tipping and how each ethnic group measures up. This is his rating, from best tippers to the worst.

    How accurate is this?

    1. Oriental Asians, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, (except Filipinos and Hmong)
    1. White American homosexuals
    2. White Americans
    3. Hispanics
    4. Europeans (Brits, Canadians, Some Aussies)
    5. Blacks
    6. South Asians (Hindus/Indians, Afghans, Pakistanis)

    Asians tip for shit.

    Whites, whites, whites and whites are the good tippers.

    Blacks are by far the worst.

    Jews are the best tippers.

    Asians are mediocre at best.

    Whites, except for Steve Bushemi. I can't imagine this conversation ever being had by any other ethnic group.

    I have a tip for you: Don't bet the horses.

    I will leave it up to the OP to determine how to stereotype my ethinicity based upon this information.
