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.

    A summery tie or anything that would go with that suit color?

    It was a question. Typically, that's what the use of the "?" form of punctuation denotes. Reading is fundamental.

    i think he was referring to the vagueness of the suggestion.

    It was a loaded question implying how obvious it is to chose a color tie to go with the suit. At least that is how I read it.

    It wasn't intended as a loaded question. I was just wondering whether your focus is on finding something to match the color (not easy at all!) or on finding something that matches both the color and the seasonality, since one could infer that you were at least partially focused on it being a summer suit.

    Oh, I totally thought you were being snide. Just interpreted it wrong, sorry about that. But yeah, nothing summery and pastel. I generally like fairly linear and nothing with too many colors or whimsical or anything.

    Is a deep burgundy linen tie totally out of the question?

    Deep burgundy and linen are not two things I normally think of together...
