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.

    Some rain here in Dallas today, although most of Texas is still in a drought.

    Yep. We had the dryest March on record, but have had lots of rain in April and May. Lakes in this area are back to normal levels. Other parts of Texas, not so much.

    My personal experience with NYC has skewed my perception of its apparently shitty weather. Over three trips, I think it's rained one day. And despite going in June and July two of my three trips to the city, I somehow circumvented the sweat-right-through-your-shirt type of heat.

    But apparently, NYC weather is basically: Surface-of-the-sun hot, blizzards, or rain.

    Everybody knows places like the northwest to be rainy, but New York gets a lot of rain I feel. We can have very extreme seasons.

    Bump for relevance. My beater shoes look like an oily middle aged woman's face who goes tanning too much.

    Rocked a crappy CVS umbrella and rain boots. Felt like a pimp daddy on the street. Only wish I had a gustbuster umbrella with me.

    ^^ absolutamente! This morning the skies were starting to get a bit orangey around our abode, and the smoke was hanging over West Houston on the drive in.

    Something like 20 houses went up in flames right across the river from us in Austin.
